Composed by Conrad Kocher, Donnalynn Grunewald, and William Chatterton Dix. Arranged by Robert Coil. Holiday,Praise & Worship,Sacred. Score and parts. 18 pages. Polished Brass #6320607. Published by Polished Brass (A0.961204).

This arrangement for trombone quintet is based on the tune that is often used for the lyrics by Folliott Pierpoint. Commonly sung to a hymn written by the German composer, Conrad Kocher, in 1836, the melody was modified by William Chatterton Dix in 1859, for a hymn titled "As With Gladness Men Of Old", hence the tune is often identified in hymnals as "DIX". Though there are several other hymn tunes that can be used with the text, this arrangement also uses a modern setting by Donnalynn Grunewald (2013) in triple meter.  The tune is most popular at Thanksgiving, but might also be used to celebrate Earth Day, or other joyful occasions. 

The range of the first trombone rises to b1 and the second rises to a1.  The bass trombone has some low B naturals, but the passages could be raised an octave if a double trigger is not available.  A good high school or amateur ensemble should be able to sound very good with this piece.  

The arranger, Bob Coil, is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of music, where he studied bass trombone with Betty Glover. Dr. Coil is the leader of the Bones of Cincinnatus trombone ensemble in Cincinnati, OH.
