This essential collection may be all you ever need for your wind instruments at Easter. It's a bargain price too! The arrangements in the publication are totally compatible with Your Favorite Hymns for Brass. These four-part arrangements use flexible instrumentation so that you can exercise some control over the instrumental voicing. The arrangements could therefore be played by brass quartet, woodwind quartet, saxophone quartet or virtually any combination of conventional wind instruments. Using the piano part the arrangements could also be used as solos or duets, depending of what instruments are available. Parts 1 and 2 in C have been printed an octave higher than the pitch shown in the score because the parts invariably are too low for flute or oboe.
The publication consists of four-stave scores for each hymn plus:
Part 1 in B flat (clarinet, trumpet, cornet, soprano sax);
Part 1 in C (8ve higher for piccolo, flute, oboe);
Part 1 in E flat (alto saxophone, E flat clarinet);
Part 2 in B flat (clarinet, trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn);
Part 2 in C (8ve higher for flute, oboe); Part 2 in E flat (alto saxophone);
Part 3 in B flat (tenor saxophone, B flat baritone);
Part 3 in C (bass clef for trombone, bassoon);
Part 3 in E flat (E flat tenor horn, alto saxophone, alto clarinet);
Part 3 in F (French horn in F);
Part 3a in B flat (8ve below score pitch for 3rd clarinet);
Part 4 in B flat (B flat bass clarinet, B flat bass);
Part 4 in C (bass clef for trombone, bass trombone, bassoon, tuba);
Part 4 in E flat (E flat baritone saxophone, E flat bass).
There’s a piano part too, so you can also use the arrangements as solos, duets or trios. All the parts are contained in a single 182-page PDF file. They are intended either as stand-alone pieces that could be used as interludes in an Easter service, or they could be used to accompany solo, choral or congregational singing. The music has been set in brass and woodwind-friendly keys so they are not compatible with the string collection of the same name. The piano part has been written for with the early intermediate pianist in mind, though some hymns are actually quite easy.
