A brand new arrangement of this Carpenters classic song for brass quintet. Great for any easy-listening type of programme. The melody is shared between Part 1, Part 3 and Part 4.

Very easy to play and suitable for any standard of ensemble.

Parts included for 1st and 2nd Cornet/Trumpet, Horn in F/Eb, Euphonium/Trombone (Treble/Bass), Bass in Eb/Tuba.


An optioinal percussion part has been added. The score has been re-written to show Part 1 in Bb, Part 2 in Bb, Part 3 in F, Part 4 and Part 5 in C (Bass clef). There is still an additional Eb Soprano part and the treble clef versions of parts 4 and 5 are also included, as is part 3 in Eb. There is no longer a Bb Bass (Treble clef) part included but you can request one free of charge

  • January 14, 2017 Beautiful Carpenters Tune

    This is a very approachable arrangement by Mike Lyons of a lovely tune that was one of the first big hits by the Carpenters. It will work well in either a concert or private party setting. Including an optional drum set part would have been helpful, but the piece sounds...

    great with brass alone. I hope Mr. Lyons will consider arranging "Close to You" and other Carpenters songs for bras quintet.
