BRASS QUINTETS
Dear Lord and Father of Mankind - Parry arr. Alun Cook
2 Trumpets, French Horn, Trombone and Tuba

The most beautiful Hymn of all! I've sung it at weddings and funerals, although it usually chokes me up so much that I cannot sing more than a few phrases. The original, "Long Since in Egypt's Plenteous Land" was part of the Parry's Oratorio "Judith", with words added later by John Whittier.

This Brass Quintet version is a distillation of my original 10 piece brass arrangement written for my own wedding and it has been used at many others. As you will hear, the congregation need to be musical or have some sort of direction as there are several traps to fall into but it is definitely worth it. A single line vocal part is included and there is also a full SATB choir score available. It also works well as an instrumental pre-wedding piece or as an interlude. The 10 piece Brass Ensemble version is also available on this site.

Sheep May Safely Graze - J.S.Bach arr. Alun Cook
2 Trumpets, French Horn, Trombone and Tuba

A beautiful, peaceful aria from Bach's Cantata BWV 208. I have "freely transcribed" this as the range of the brass instruments does not allow a simple transcription, so there are some slightly lush harmonies in places (but not as wild as Grainger's wonderful "Blithe Bells")

Trumpet Voluntary - Jeremiah Clarke arr. Alun Cook
2 Trumpets, French Horn, Trombone and Tuba

Also known as The Prince of Denmark's March, this is frequently used for Weddings (Royal and otherwise) and the key chosen is not the original but is more manageable on Bb trumpets.

Also available for 10 Piece Brass
