Brass Quintet – Ding Dong Merrily on High
A brand new and somewhat quirky arrangement of the well-known Christmas
Carol. ? The Trombone and Tuba are given a fair crack of the whip,
rather than it being left up to the trumpets all the time!
At letter D the music slips into a Jazz Waltz style and it is important to
swing the quavers to get the full effect, which produces some interesting
results. and at letter F, we find ourselves creating a little hocket,
with fragments of the tune passed around the enemble – but without it
losing any of its cohesion.
At letter G the music returns (almost) to normal. and this reprise leads to the end.
Please pay attention to all the articulations and slurs, which are very specific to create the effects.
If you are bored with the traditional settings, then this is for you.
Horn in F/Eb
Tuba/Eb Bass (Bass/Treble)
