Here is something you don’t see in person that often, a bass trumpet. I just commissioned the build of this horn from Dr. Bill Jones who has built trumpets for the Chicago Symphony. The rotary valves…Continue

This brass piece is called Pilot Mountain which is a mountain in NC written for 6 trumpets, 3 euphoniums, 2 tubas, and way too many trombones, bass trombones and horns in the happy little key of F…Continue

I’ve been living in a “4 Part-Writing” nightmare but hey if you want to hear some brass, woodwinds, and organ playing a chorale hit here also

For the past 2 weeks I’ve been working and stressing over a hymn based on Psalms 91:9-11 for a Moravian and Methodist hymnal and songbook. After I would compose the counter-point I would check and…Continue

I used to post here all the time, so I apologize for not contributing lately. The genesis of this hymn started with a simple statement from my best friend complaining about the simplicity of…Continue

"Would you believe I did the math. It’s exactly 50% mellow and 50% brassy. Maybe I’ll cut and edit a version with just the mellow parts for ya? Lol. "

"Thank you my friend. Nothing amazing about it though, just simply a hymn repeated over and over again several times like an English hymn with each time in a new setting. I even kept it diatonic with no accidentals. I suck as a composer. "

"Trombone is mellower than bass trumpet, really?  OK, I guess I am really ignorant of brass timbres. :-/ Or maybe I'm confusing trombone with muted F horn. (I really like that buzzing muted horn sound, esp. at ff.)"

Rodney Carlyle Money replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion My new instrument you’ve probably never written for
"If you like mellow, you need to write for euphonium. From mellow to brightest or brassiest in this range is: euphonium, Rotary Kaiser Baritone, English/ French Baritone, German Tenor Horn, Trombone, and Bass Trumpet.  "

"What's the range of this beauty? Sounds like a mellower version of the trumpet with a lower register... would love to compose for it sometime. (Har har, like I have the time to do anything these days...)"

Thanks for the invite, Rodney. I was quite impressed by your Sins of the Old Testament pieces. Dance of the Golden  Calf was quite beguiling. I'm currently listening to BelgianComposer's new Double Bass Sonata (http://youtu.be/c4wIy1qyf1E). Check his Youtube channel out. I haven't run across him elsewhere, but his work is consistently first rate. Again, thanks for your work.
