20th Century. The stately chorale section from the Jupiter movement of The Planets is extracted for standard brass quintet. The tune starts in the first trumpet and is passed and shared amongst the upper four voices. In this arrangement, the chorale "ends" with a full cadence, unlike the original where the chorale segues into a scherzo recapitulation. Makes a great processional.

I Gotta Funk, Buddy also features an optional drum part. Why don't you ask a drummer buddy of yours to even fit an improvised drum solo into the piece? This might prompt the audience to jump up to their feet. -the publisher
