Also known by its first line, "When morning guilds the skies," this wonderful hymn tune by Joseph Barnby is known throughout the English-speaking world paired with lyrics translated from the original German by Edward Caswall.
Here it is presented for trombone quintet consisting of one soprano trombone (slide trumpet), three tenor trombones, and one bass trombone. If a soprano slide trombone is not available, the part can be played on a standard soprano valve trombone (trumpet). The soprano part is written transposed for a Bb instrument, while the other parts are written in concert key.
