Composed by Engelbert Humperdinck (1854-1921). Arranged by Gordon Cherry. Romantic Period, Opera. Score, Set of Parts. 14 pages. Published by Cherry Classics Music (S0.318863).

Item Number: S0.318863

Transcribed by Principal Trombone of the Vancouver Symphony, Gordon Cherry. This work is for 8 trombones, and is taken from the famous scene in the opera when the children say a prayer before going to sleep in the deep forest. This work has a very beautiful sound and shows off the legato and expressive qualities of the trombone choir. This transcription is very tastefully done, with minimal editing of dynamics and phrasing. These three movements of 6 minutes  in length can be performed with four trombones or a trombone ensemble of many players. Beethoven's composition  is beautiful with choral style part writing and each part having an equal importance. It will make a beautiful  addition to your concert. Difficulty level is advanced for part one (high tessitura) and moderate for the other 3 parts.
