Gratias Agimus (brass quintet)
B minor Mass
The chorus ’Gratias Agimus’ from Bach’s great B Minor Mass is a strict fugue in stretto. There are two subjects: the first has been used innumerable times. Here it is given first by the Tuba in bars 1-3, followed immediately by successive overlapping entries in the Horn, Trumpet 2 and Trumpet 1. The Trombone announces the second subject in bar 5, again followed by the Horn and Trumpets. With slight variation this magnificent chorus is repeated at the end of the Mass to the words ’Dona Nobis Pacem’. Chhose symphonic or brass band parts.
In this arrangement the first Trumpet part may be played on the Bb trumpet, changing to Bb Piccolo towards the end, or alternatively on Eb Trumpet throughout. Parts are provided for both eventualities.
