Partita for brass quintet (Op.54)

A quintet for brass (two trumpets, horn, trombone and tuba) in five movements

  1. Proclamation
  2. Canzona: O magnum mysterium
  3. Ricercar
  4. Sennet and tucket antiphon
  5. Clarion Call and Anfar

This work is a compilation of earlier material – five fanfares (Op.30 No.3 to No.7) combined with two choral pieces (Op.46 No.1 and No.2), re-composed for brass quintet.

Constantly changing combinations of instruments gives wide textural variety, and frequent use of mutes provides added sonority.
