Samuel Scheidt's Galliard Battaglia, composed around 1621 and popularized by the Canadian Brass, has become one of the most recognized works in the brass quintet repertoire. This secular work was originally written for five viols. The Galliard dance style, very popular at the time serves as a perfect foil for the music's echoing back-and-forth fanfares and brilliant scales. Neal Bennett of iTromboni has done a great job of arranging this music for Trombone quintet of 2 altos (possible on tenor also), 2 tenors & bass, playable by advanced performers. Length is about two minutes.
