Repertoire for Brass Ensemble and Organ. Suitable for amateur ensembles and non-professional church musicians.
A variety of instrumental parts allow many performance options.
The Organ plus Brass series presents original works and arrangements for Organ and Brass choir specially tailored to meet the needs of amateur ensembles and non-professional organists. The pieces may be played by any constellation of Brass Ensemble.
Volume IV contains arrangements of church music by Charles Villiers Stanford, both chorale-based and freely composed. The original works for Choir and Organ can be appropriately transferred to the festive scoring for Brass ensemble and Organ.
Stanford (1852 - 1924) was an Irish born composer, teacher and conductor. Following studies at the University of Cambridge he studied music in Leipzig and Berlin before returning to England where he was one of the founding professors of the Royal College of Music in London. He taught composition there until the end of his life.
