Brass Quintet & Organ

Boellmann, L./Marlatt-Suite Gothique (ENP-BQ2192) 2.1.1.0.1 & Organ

!
Rating: Medium-Difficult. This is an arrangement for brass quintet and organ of a famous organ solo. There art four movements in this suite: Introduction, Minuet gothique, Priere a Notre-dame and Toccata. Each is distinctive and colourful. The sound of the organ chords with various combinations of brass voices makes this truly exciting. None of the parts are too difficult as the organ takes away any of the range extremes that may have been present in a quintet alone arrangement. This piece would be terrific on a concert or recital and would also make a powerful recording project.

Bruckner/Marlatt-Ave Maria (ENP-BQ27270) 2.1.1.0.1 & Organ

!
Rating: Medium. This is the most popular and often performed setting by Bruckner. When this work was written Bruckner had just finished a five year course of contrapuntal study during which he was forbidden to write any "free" compositions. With this restriction lifted, he wrote this simple yet powerful motet.

Frescobaldi, G./Marlatt-Toccata (ENP-BQ23150) 2.1.1.0.1 & Organ

!
Rating: Medium-Difficult. This popular organ solo is now available for brass quintet and organ.

Handel, G./Marlatt-Awake The Trumpets Lofty Sound from Samson (ENP-BQ23148) 2.1.1.0.1 & Organ

!
Rating: Medium. This is an arrangement for brass quintet and organ with optional timpani. Handel's oratorio Samson contains several great movements that trumpet players play as solo or ensemble pieces at recitals apart from the complete oratorio. Besides Awake the Trumpet's Lofty Sound, there is Let Their Celestial Concerts and, one of the most popular trumpet and voice duets, Let the Bright Seraphim.

!
Larger picture
Rating: Difficult. This is an ideal work to feature an organist on a quintet and organ concert or recital. The organ part is fairly technical but not too difficult and most parts fall under the fingers quite necely. The Trumpet 1 part should be played on B-flat Piccolo Trumpet or E-flat Trumpet to maintain a lighter sound in the upper register.

Monteverdi, C./Marlatt-Deus In Adjutorium from Vespers of the Blessed Virgin (ENP-BQ23154) 2.1.1.0.1 & Organ

!
Rating: Medium. Originally written for orchestra and a large choir, this powerful work was to be performed in a large church in Venice, perhaps even St. Mark's Cathedral. One Monteverdi scholar believes that this was written as a kind of "job interview" for a position as a composer in Venice. It has been arranged here for brass quintet and organ.
