The Stars And Stripes Forever composed by John Philip Sousa (1854-1932). Arranged by Lennie Niehaus. For baritone horn-tuba quartet (2 baritone horns and 2 tubas). Patriotic, Americana. Grade 3. Score and set of parts. Published by Kendor Music Inc (KN.18146).
Caught up in the wave of patriotism that's sweeping America, Niehaus has transformed the famous trio section of Sousa's immortal march in this swingin' version for baritone-tuba quartets. All players carry lead material at one time or another, and the piccolo obbligato is developed within the body of the arrangement. Articulations and dynamics are carefully marked, and modern harmonies abound.
