The famous Jig Fugue by Bach is a favourite with organists. It is light-hearted and energetic with its rollicking triple meter. The key has been altered to facilitate the brass quintet at this level. All parts are very active including the tuba, who must tackle the tricky bass lines of Bach. There is also a version of this work for 2 trumpets and organ available through Eighth Note Publications.
