Adam, A./Marlatt-O Holy Night (ENP-STB2510)

!
Rating: Medium-Difficult. This setting is for trombone and organ. The familiar melody soars with the sound of the trombone. Range and control of sound are the two factors which make this piece difficult. This is a truly awesome work to be performed in a church during the holiday season.

Bach, J.S./Marlatt-Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring (ENP-STB2514)

!
Rating: Easy-Medium. This very popular piece has been arranged many times for various instruments. This version for trombone and keyboard (either organ or piano) alternates between the chorale theme and the wandering counter-melody that has made this piece so famous.

Carissimi, G./Marlatt-Vittoria, Vittoria (ENP-STB2619)

!
Rating: Easy-Medium. This piece was originally for bass voice and piano by Italian composer Giacomo Carissimi. The flowing melodic line works perfectly as a trombone and piano work. Contrasting sections of marcato and legato style make this piece ideal for use in church, concerts, recitals or as a contest piece.

Franck, C./Marlatt-Panis Angelicus (ENP-STB257)

!
Rating: Easy-Medium.

Gounod, Schubert/Marlatt-Two Famous Ave Marias (ENP-STB214)

!
Rating: Medium. These two works are among the most popular and often used pieces at weddings and recitals. The simple accompaniment combined with the famous flowing melody makes either piece a great choice for trombone and keyboard (piano or organ) at various occasions.

Handel, G./Marlatt-Let Me Weep (ENP-STB2316)

!
Rating: Medium. This beautiful slow piece is ideal for that change of pace piece on a concert. Its lyrical nature also makes it a perfect selection for weddings or church services as pleasant, quiet background music. This work was originally a soprano aria and the lyrical line is great to demonstrate the singing quality of the trombone.

Loeillet, J./Marlatt-Largo Cantabile (ENP-STB259)

!
Rating: Easy-Medium. This is truly beautiful music ideal for weddings, church services or a recital to demonstrate lyrical playing. The key has been altered from the original to allow for performance in a more comfortable range. The range is limited which allows for maximum musicality and beauty of sound to be brought forward.

Mozart, W./Marlatt-Ave Verum Corpus (ENP-STB256)

!
Rating: Medium. This is a perfect piece to develope a beautiful sound and work on phrasing.

Mozart, W./Marlatt-Rondo Alla Turca from Piano Sonata in A K.331 (ENP-TE2417)

!
Rating: Medium-Difficult. This has been arranged as a showy technical piece for euphonium and piano. The melody alternates between the soloist and piano and the technical passages fall nicely under the fingers.

Ravel/Marlatt-Piece en forme de Habanera (ENP-STB2725)

!
Rating: Medium-Difficult.

Telemann, G./Marlatt-Heroic Suite (ENP-STB981)

!
Rating: Easy-Medium. This suite is ideal for the developing trombone player. Each movement has its own character or mood and this allows for expressive playing as well as brilliant fanfares. Since the movements are fairly short, this is an excellent set of pieces for performers that are restricted by a time limit such as a church service. This would also make an excellent contest piece at a festival to show off the capabilities of a young musician.

Trad./Marlatt-The Last Rose of Summer (ENP-STB2724)

!
Rating: Medium. This famous Irish folk melody is the "Groves of Blarney". It has been performed by many vocal solists from the United Kingdom and around the world. The solo voice could be played on either trombone or, more appropriately, euphonium.

Traditional/Marlatt-Deep River (ENP-STB2518)

!
Rating: Medium. This famous melody is supported by an interesting piano part with jazz harmonies and rhythnic pulse. Spirituals are ideal at church, on a concert or for use at a competition.
