This set includes one number: He Shall Feed His Flock from Handel's Messiah. This arrangement is a bit more advanced than most of our Christmas Quints because of the somewhat higher range and sustained nature of the parts.
This particular arrangement is only two minutes long, though the original soprano solo in Messiah is over five. We've truncated the introduction and coda section and eliminated the interlude and repeat to reduce the strain on the brass players playing continuously. A repeat to the top could be executed at the end of measure 40 to make the piece closer to four minutes long if desired and if endurance allows.
From time to time, all brass groups get asked to play at a community gathering, shopping mall, open house, or something similar, and this could be a handy source of some material to play.
