Benediction composed by John Stevens. For Concert Band (Score & Parts). MusicWorks Grade 3. Grade 3. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.4002949).
Originally scored for brass choir, composer John Stevens brings us this marvelous version for full band featuring flowing melodies and counterlines in a rich chorale-like setting. The solo part at the beginning and end is scored for euphonium, but is cued for clarinet, trumpet or trombone. Great for teaching a lyric style of playing, and also as an effective performance piece. Dur: 3:30
