From the Music of Black Composers Series, this brass choir arrangement captures the subtle textures of the composer’s chromatic harmonies inspired in the original vocal octet by a poem by T. B. Aldrich. Born of an African father, Coleridge-Taylor was an early 20th century English composer and conductor who was an influential advocate for Black composers.  One of Coleridge-Taylor's rare A Cappella compositions for vocal SATB double choir here arranged for mixed brass octet, Sea Drift is infused with descriptive tone-color painting highlighting the tragic story of the merchant sailor who perishes in a stormy sea to the despair of his lover onshore. The arrangement is scored for eight brass with alternate parts - three B-flat trumpets with alternate C trumpet parts , two F horns with alternate flugelhorn parts, two trombones with an alternate horn part for trombone 1, and tuba.

“The Music of Black Composers Series is a welcome and timely addition to the brass repertoire. Interesting music, expertly arranged, fun to perform, and well received by audiences. These pieces are now permanently in my quintet book along with the usual Joplin and Waller, and I will be using them with my student groups as well. Highly recommended!” Wesley Nance, Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Eastman School of Music
