    Scheidt - In Dulci Jubilo

    Samual Scheidt, an early baroque period composer and organist, is probably best know for his "Galliard Battaglia" for brass choir. The "In Dulci Jubilio" was originally composed in a collection "Cantiones Sacrae, 1620" for double choirs of SSAT and ATTB and two antiphonal trumpets. This particular choral score was arranged by Michel Rondeau, who has given his kind permission for me to use his score to arrange for brass choir.

    Here I have set it for double brass quartet and two antiphonal trumpets using the GPO library as follows;

    (Antiphonal)
    Piccolo Trumpet NV
    Piccolo Trumpet NV
    (SATB)
    Trumpet 1 Plr 1
    Trumpet 1 Plr 2
    French Horn 1 Plr 1
    Tenor Trombone Plr 1
    (ATTB)
    French Horn 1 Plr 1
    Tenor Trombone Plr 2
    Tenor Trombone Plr 3
    Tuba 1 Solo

    I set the Garritan Ambience for a rather spacious cathedral sound without loosing the clariety of the instruments. The piccolo trumpets are guarenteed to exercise the tweeters.

    I would think this could be nice for the Christmas CD.

    Nice work Gary. Very enjoyable. Interpretation is excellent. Rendering-wise, I think the trumpets might be a tad hot.

    I felt as though I was listening to the real thing. Thanks.

    Bill,

    Thanks for your comments. Yes I sounds real and yes the piccolo trumpets are a bit smoking. I tried a few different mixes and it seemed to come out the same. I backed the piccolo trumpets down a notch and reloaded it. I think this is a better mix.

    It seems that Baroque is the order of the day!

    This is very good Gary - I didn't hear the original mix, but it certainly sounded very good and well balanced to me.

    This must be my absolute favorite hymn tune, apart from "O Haupt voll Blut"..... I must admit honestly that brass choirs are not my favorite kinds of ensembles, but I have to let you know that you have done an delightful rendition of this arrangement. Thank you.
    Kind Regards

    Gary,

    Yet another nice brass rendition from your "pen." I am familliar with the Galliard Battaglia but had never heard this one. Pieces from that period work so well for brass, especially in a live hall. The sound just surrounds you like a heavenly fog.

    Hi, Gary

    Beautiful recording! - I didn't hear the earlier version either, but certainly agree with Alan that this is sounding very nice.

    You mention the idea of submitting this for the Garritan Christmas CD - Did you get it on DPDAN's list? (thread in General Discussion) It's quite a long list of submissions now, but you may as well go ahead and make Dan's job of selecting tracks even more difficult!

    Thanks for the uplifting music this morning.

    Thanks Alan. The only difference then was the antiphonal trumpets were up a bit too high considering how shrill they are inherently. This is more pleasent to listen to !!

    Thanks LouisD. I know brass is not to everyone's taste. But this piece screams for it. Imagine what it was like to hear it sung in the 1620's? Incredibly sounds of voices reverberating in large stone structures. Here I think that the GPO brass it did justice.
