A number of years ago, when I was still playing in the
Baltimore Symphony, Dave Fetter complained to me that too many trombone
choir pieces were slow and somber, and he was having trouble finding
pieces to create variety on his programs.
I did this transcription in response to his complaint. The
piece makes a great encore for your trombone choir, or can be very
effective when paired with the Requiem
Aeternam that I have also transcribed for trombones.
