In an unguarded moment, I promised I would do a piece for Snorlax's Brass Quintet. 2 Tpts, Euphonium, (replacing the customary French Horn) Trombone and Tuba.
This piece was written on 3 different continents in the space of 5 weeks.(Usa, Morocco, and the UK).
The 2 major influences on this piece however, are the great Renaissance/Baroque Brass pieces (Gabrielli etc), and the Northern England Brass Band tradition.
This is a somewhat quick and dirty rendition, it was written in Sibelius and then briefly tweaked in Cubase.
I will do a more detailed rendition when the Piece is complete. (2 more movements to go)
All GPO except the euphonium part which uses the JABB tuba with a small eq cut.
I sure hope the players in Snorlax's group have big lungs, because there are not many places to snatch a breath.
