Ecce Sacerdos Magnus ("Behold the Great Priest") comes from the early European tradition of plainchant. Bruckner's setting of the responsory, originally scored for eight-part mixed choir, organ and three Trombones, brings certain medieval qualities to an otherwise Romantic-era composition. This transcription for large Trombone ensemble attempts to retain the majesty, power and beauty of the original piece; all of Bruckner's phrasing, dynamics, and accents have been retained.
This seven minute work has been beautifully transcribed by Stuart O'Neil and is suitable for moderately advanced performers.
