Click to enlargeSaints, etc. (brass quintet)

This is a fun little novelty piece written for two trumpets, horn, trombone, and tuba. It is built around "When the Saints Go Marching In," and its possible (though possibly improbable) partner songs.

After a brief introduction, each trumpet takes a turn playing "When the Saints Go Marching In" accompanied by the other three instruments.

After a key change, we get a trombone and french horn duet of "She'll be Coming 'Round the Mountain." Then the trombone repeats while the horn plays "Saints."

Then we have "Saints" with "Mountain" with "Amazing Grace."

Then "Saints" with "Mountain" with "The Star-Spangled Banner."

The two trumpets and the horn then play "Merrily We Roll Along" (the chorus of "Good Night Ladies").

Then we get "Saints" with "Good Night Ladies" twice.

One more turn of "Merrily We Roll Along" leads us to a final shout chorus of "Saints" with "Mountain" and "Banner" and "Ladies," which sounds almost as wild as it seems it would be, transforming in to a big, showy ending.

This would be a fun number to end a quintet concert or set. All the parts are relatively easy though somewhat rangy, and if you are missing a piece there is probably no good way to substitute another instrument.

The pdf includes parts for brass band instruments as well as standard concert band/orchestral instruments.

MP3 sound sample: entire piece (synthesizer/midi).

SAINTS, ETC. by Tom Kirkland for brass quintet consisting of two trumpets, F horn, trombone, and tuba, plus parts for Eb horn, trombone TC, Eb tuba TC, and Bb tuba TC, comes in a pdf file of 541K, with an eleven-page score, nine two-page parts, and a license page, thirty pages in all. Performance time should be about three 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.

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."
