Gospel. Classic Christian hymn tune here for 8 trombones (six tenors and two basses), horn octet, or any combination thereof. This is a serious arrangement (i.e. not jazz), with the instructions "with deep feeling." Opens with a choir unison, is joined by the basses in measure nine, and gradually builds out to full harmony. All trombone parts in bass clef. Score & parts. -cdp (score sample page)
