Instrumentation

for trombone choir (5 parts)

Composed for the Interlochen Trombone Choir, this seven minute piece opens and closes with a meditative choral and contains a contrapuntal central section featuring the bass trombones. The language is tonal throughout. Difficulty lies in the extended range for the outer parts, not in technical matters. Range: Pedal F (bass trombone) to C an octave above middle C (first trombones). The piece works very well for an ensemble of mixed ability, as the third part is rather simple. 

Difficulty: advanced high school/college
