Brass and Wine is a brand new work by a new composer on LKR Sheet Music, Allan Herbie Jones. Brass and Wine is a slow swing style piece for Concert Band, featuring Trumpet and Clarinet. Additional Eb Horn parts, Euphonium in Treble and Bass clef and a String bass part.
The text is a free adaptation of an ancient Ambrosian hymn to Jesus in latin from the fifth century. The piece is divided in three parts, each one starting with an antiphon and it is written mostly in counterpoint, especially the third and last part, and using the tonal language. The several musical themes are written to follow and emphasise the various text sentences.
