This brilliant brass band arrangement captures the brilliance and excitement of the Coleridge-Taylor's orchestral showpiece Danse Nègre from his African Suite, Op. 35. Born of an African father, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor was an early 20th century English composer and conductor who was an influential advocate for Black composers. The five-minute arrangement is scored for a traditional British Brass Band of soprano E-flat cornet, B-flat cornets, flugelhorn, 3 E-flat alto horns, 2 baritone horns, euphonium, and E-flat and B-flat bass. A complete set of substitute parts are include for common band brass instruments being F horn substitutes for E-flat alto horns and all low brass instruments set in the bass clef. The recording is of the entire arrangement.
