Christmas. This arrangement was conceived of as a concert opener for a quintet concert. It begins in a celebratory manner and, after two statements of the melody, the tune is stated in augmented fragments in the low brass. The rhythms often alternate between duple and triple groupings, adding to the interesting feel. This was recorded on the CD Christmas Postcards from the HoodleBug Brass - recorded by the faculty brass quintet at IUP (Indiana University of Pennsylvania). -the publisher

For 3 trumpets (optinal horn part for trumpet 3), 2 trombones (optional tuba part for trombone 2), piano. Score & parts. Lloyd Larson's setting for brass ensemble of this timeless hymn spans the dynamic spectrum, from the haunting opening to the majestic conclusion. Though a great consideration for any worship service, it is a particularly inspiring repertoire addition in the season of Lent or during Holy Week. The piano accompaniment enhances the impact of the hymn and provides a solid foundati...

Romantic. Maurer's 12 Kleine Stcke (12 Little Pieces) for five brass were published posthumously in 1881 and were written for two cornets in Bb, two horns in Eb, and one bass trombone. They are important works for brass in that they are some of the earliest pieces of brass chamber music existing; with Anton Simon's Quartuor en forme de sonatine, Alexander Glazinov's In modo religioso and Wilhelm Ramsoe's five Quartets they remain some of the handful of original brass works from the nineteenth ce...
American Patriotic. 20th Century. Written for the bicentennial observance at Gramercy Park, New York City. A decidedly "un-corny" treatment of this popular patriotic tune. A short work, but quite a bit longer than the Fanfare title might suggest. Interesting to play and approachable to all audiences. Very similar (but not exact) to the work of the same title for woodwind quintet.
American Dance Music was commissioned by Rhythm and Brass in 1995. McCarthy was asked to compose a piece that would be musically challenging for the group and appealing to audiences. Thus, such a work was written by McCarthy that celebrates uniquely American music popularized by American dance crazes. The Unsquare Dance pairs the tuba and xylophone in a sophisticated "hoe-down" with frequent meter changes creating music that is "un-square." Latina is patterned after the "Lambada," the dance made...

21st Century (2008). By Ian McDougall, jazz trombonist, composer, arranger and band leader. For solo flugelhorn (or trombone or french horn) with 003.01 brass quartet (3 trombones and tuba) or trombone quartet. Five players total. "Lush chords with shifting brooding colors set the tone for the soloist who plays a beautiful dark and lyric melody line. The work is in A-B-A form with a Latin middle section featuring an ad-lib jazz solo (a written out solo is provided also)." -the publisher
21st Century (2008). Trois Hommages is just that - an homage in three movements to a few composers who have inspired me over the years. Bela Bartok's gorgeous brass chorale from his Concerto for Orchestra was the inspiration for the first movement, Duke Ellington's exotic jazz-noir writing suggested the second movement's Danse Macabre, and Sergei Prokofiev's diabolically clever modulations in the Gavotte from his Classical Symphony were the jumping-off points for the third movement's Gigue, with ...
"Dynasty" is a bold and exciting symphonic march. A contrasting theme and powerful low lines keep the energy up throughout this piece. Lightly articulated passages contrast the big, brassy sound, making this fun to play and to listen to. -the publisher
