One of the most famous movements from "The Messiah" features the piccolo trumpet and tuba, trombone, Euphoniums or high tuba on the solo parts. The bass part goes up to a high "E" above the staff several times, so the tuba must have a good high register or own a Euphoniums. The trombone and tuba solo parts can be switched and the trombonist from the quintet can play the solo bass part on tenor trombone, bass trombone or Euphoniums. The tuba can then move to the trombone part, which is a low part anyway. This transcription comes in the original key of in D.bist. In the original key, an optional organ part can be added to the quintet for a very symphonic effect. This work is a must on a Brass Quintet Christmas or Easter Concert.
