From Sacrae Symphoniae (1597). An excellent and very effective transcription of this wonderfully majestic and inspirational (and not too difficult) work. Stylistic articulation and dynamics, as usual in these types of pieces, are musts. For three choirs of four B-flat trumpets each.
ITG Journal, March 2023, page 76:
"...beautiful new transcription...With imitation, contrary motion, and open intervals, the piece provides ample opportunity to work on intonation, balance, blend, and Renaissance performance practice...This wonderful transcription will surely be a joy for any large trumpet ensemble to perform."
