If With All Your Hearts (flugelhorn with brass quintet)

Mendelssohn, in his oratorio Elijah, gave this moving aria to a tenor singing the role of Obadiah. Immediately following a recitative imporing the people to turn from idolatry, he gives first a promise that God may be found by anyone who truly seeks Him, then a plea to be in God's presence, then again the assurance God will be found if truly sought.

In this setting the tenor aria has been transposed for flugelhorn, the most mellow of the soprano horns, accompanied by a brass quintet of two trumpets, two trombones, and a tuba. The arrangement is close to Mendelssohn's orchestral score, and makes an effective, smooth, flowing number that shows off the sonority of a full clutch of horns.

Bass trombone can be easily substituted for tuba. This piece could also be used as a trumpet solo with two flugelhorns, two baritone horns, and a tuba, to great effect.


"If with all your hearts ye truly seek Me, ye shall ever truly find Me," thus saith our God.

O, that I knew where I might find Him, that I might even come before his presence.

"If with all your hearts ye truly seek Me, ye shall ever truly find Me," thus saith our God.

Performance time should be slightly more than two minutes.

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.

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 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, the composer, arranger, and lyricist are credited.
