Well-loved piece by Handel arranged for trumept sextet (picc, 3 C's, + 2 flugels). Give it a listen...
That is a fine arrangement. Excellent blending of the "voices." Now get all your trumpet playing friends together and come play it at my church.
Seriously, that is excellent. I hope you sell a bunch of copies.
I was also asked about Bb trumpets being used instead of C's. Yes, they certainly can (and Bb parts can be sent on request), but that will put you in a tougher key (E instead of D). Thanks...
Just a note of Thanks to Michael here. I recently ordered some Christmas Carol stuff from him for our little trumpet choir to use when we "entertain" craft fairs and such. The package arrived today.
Folks, I highly recommend Michael's music. It is very nicely printed on HEAVY paper (almost card stock) and comes c/w a bound "director's score". Michael is really super easy to work with and provides fast communication. His prices are more than fair as well; (and how many places are there to find "different" arrangements of trumpet choir music?)
That is the truth! Very fair prices, high quality stuff. I just need a few more trumpet players around here :(Originally Posted by Tootsall
Well, I have been on the site listening, and I am most definitely going to get Game of Fifths! Baroque is okay, but I absolutely love how that kind of music sound with a real tight brass choir like that!
I also might be going off-topic a bit, but is your choice Bb a Strad?
Hi Van -
I played Bach Strads for a long time, but am currently playing a Schilke X4-L, an extra large bore horn. I still use a Bach 1.25C with a 24 throat as my main mpc, and a Bach 1D with a 24 throat for lead playing. I will sometimes switch to a Schilke 15a4a with a 22 throat for lots of real high stuff. Nothing against Bach's, just got a great deal on this horn when my Bach was in great need of retirement!
Interesting. Has anyone ever mentioned your sound is very Strad-like? Of course, in a good way! You sound really rings, and its fun to listen to!
Anytime you have an idea for a brass choir, or what ever brass group, let me know. I'll be honored to come over and help you out. B-flat or C, it doesn't matter. I can likely bring another trumpet player or two with me.
Tis the season to make joyful music unto our Lord. Of course every season is the reason.
Dale Schmidt, P.E.
