Brass Quintet

Ode To Joy (Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee) Hymn to Joy
by Ludwig Beethoven
arr. Charlie Peterson
Price: $10

Transposed parts can be ordered.

Three times through the hymn with an intro and short transitions between verses.  Trumpet 1 has melody 1st time, trumpet 2 & horn split the melody on the 2nd time through,  then trombone and tuba take the melody the final time.  An optional 4-bar tag ending is written for a more dramatic finish.

Note:  The trumpet 1 part has descants on the 2nd & 3rd times through.  In place of the ones written, you may use other standard descants.  Recommended alternates are:

"Double Descants for Brass" by Keith Kunda 1998 by Light of the World Music

"Sixty-One Trumpet Hymns & Descants, Vol. I" by Douglas Smith 1977 by Hope Publishing Co.
