Brass Quintet with optional percussion

Battle Hymn of the Republic
melody by William Steffe
lyrics by Julia Ward Howe
arr. Charlie Peterson
Price: $10

Transposed parts can be ordered.

It starts out slow & stately at half tempo with pyramid entrances then shifts to a standard slow march swing/shuffle in 12/8.  The trumpets take turns playing the melody then the trombone takes over with the horn in harmony.  The tuba gets to play melody on a refrain then the trumpets take over at the modulation.  There is an optional Reveille intro, Taps ending & Assembly interlude for those who want some bugle call thematic flavor thrown in.
A part with Field Drum & Bass Drum is included to add a stately touch.
