Give Me Jesus is an old favorite currently finding favor as a worship song in churches with contemporary worship styles, and has been sung and played in many styles, but my personal favorite arrangement had always been the choir arrangement by Larry L. Fleming. That arrangement strongly influenced the style of this arrangement.
After putting together the brass sextet arrangement of this piece, there came an itch to flesh it out a bit further to full brass band. The chance to hear these harmonies expressed with the dynamic range and full tone of a large brass ensemble was too good to pass up.
There are eleven instrumental parts (some combined for printing). Trumpet 1, Trumpet 2 & 3, French Horn 1 & 2, Trombone 1 & 2, Bass Trombone, Baritone 1 & 2, and Tuba. Baritone parts are provided in both treble clef Bb and bass clef concert key. All voices will need to be covered for performance.
There is no easy way around the bass trombone. The part is too high in a couple of spots for a tuba, and too low in others for a tenor trombone or a baritone/euphonium.
GIVE ME JESUS, a traditional spiritual arranged by Tom Kirkland for brass band consisting of at least three trumpets, two french horns, two tenor trombones, bass trombone, two baritones, and tuba, comes in a pdf file of 1001K, with a five-page score, eight two-page parts, and a license page, twenty-two pages in all. Performance time should be about three minutes.
WE SEEK RECORDINGS TO USE AS DEMOS
The majority of our sheet music pieces use electronically-produced demos on the item pages. We would much prefer to use actual recordings, so if you email us a digital recording or link to an online video and we end up using it as a demo on our site (fully credited), we will send you a coupon code good for US$25 toward your next purchase from our site.
BLANKET RECORDING POLICY FOR SHEET MUSIC
Many of our sheet music licenses state that the purchaser does not have the right to record the work. We have modified our policy on this, and unless the license page states that you must obtain permission from a party other than www.tributek.com to record the work, we will allow a small number (less than 50) of copies of an audio or video recording of a live performance to be made and distributed and/or posted to a free web site for viewing/listening, so long as www.tributek.com, the composer, arranger, and lyricist are credited.
A customer commented: "Today I made my first purchase from Tributek. Every aspect of the transaction exceeded my expectations. The description of the product included a Quicktime demo in addition to a clear, interesting, well-written description of the product. The price of the product was a bargain. The ordering process could not have been easier or faster. I will definitely shop with Tributek again!"
Another customer commented: "I would like to compliment you on the ease of purchasing music on-line. I require the music for a wedding in a couple of weeks, and didn't want to wait for music to be sent in the mail. It was great to be able to hear the music and to know the length of the PDF file and performance time."
Another customer writes: "I bought some choral music off your site. It's great. I hope we can do all of it in our church. I don't know how you can sell it so cheap. It's a great service you offer."
