Two new pieces by Robert Ward, Principal Horn of the San Francisco Symphony, for brass ensemble, organ and percussion have been added to the IHS Online Music Sales.
Ward, Robert – Sussex Carol Variations for brass ensemble, organ, and percussion
Sussex Carol Variations takes the traditional carol and transforms it six ways, ending in a triumphant “Alleluia” reminiscent of Hindemith’s Mathis Der Maler.
Dukas, Paul (arr. Ward) – Prélude Élégiaque for brass ensemble, organ, and percussion
The Dukas Prélude Élégiaque is an arrangement of the relatively unknown piano work published in 1910. Somewhat impressionistic, it is a gentle piece for brass, organ and percussion.
