I will probably be posting quite a few postings this year concerning my requiem "In Remembrance." Several parts of this huge composition have already been performed by various groups in the past and even some parts have been published, but now I am almost ready to put the pieces together.
My very first issue is with the trombone feature in the 2nd movement entitled "Hymn." Originally the bass trombone was in the tuba range causing the harmonies not to be as tight as I probably wanted. The mp3 first starts with the live recording, then the Garritan trombones with closer harmony, and lastly you are going to hear a wind ensemble version (woodwinds and brass) version still in the low brass's tenor and bass registers.
Please let me know what you think, and please tell me your suggestions! Thank you so very much. On the link you can find the mp3 and the 2 scores. The live score is called Hymn Brass Score 3-4 and the Garritan trombone version is simply called Hymn Trombone. The wind ensemble version uses the exact same scoring of the Garritan trombones but uses Instant Orchestra's Natural Brass and Winds.
