Horn Ensemble Arrangements

I now have three horn ensemble arrangements for sale. These are as described below and come with a cover, score and parts. These were printed up for the Horn Symposium in 2005 at Tuscaloosa, Alabama. They are plain paper and not fancy but a reasonable price. The next edition may be more expensive. There is a limited quantity available, so first come first served. I have used these pieces at my summer seminar and they sound great.

Each cost $6.00 plus $1.99 shipping and handling for one or more more arrangements. This means that the shipping is the same for one or more. If you want to buy multiple copies (over three) you will need to email me about shipping. If you get one or more of these with a book order I will throw in the shipping for the ensemble piece(s) for free, up to three arrangements.

You can get all three for $15.00 plus $1.99 shipping and handling. Free shipping with book purchase.

Theme from Symphony No. 3 by Saint-Saens (The "Organ" Symphony)

This is the familiar melody section of the slow movement. It is a 4 part arrangement that sounds great with any number of horns- the more the merrier! Suitable for intermediate to advanced players. It is not technically difficult and is not a range problem.

Ave Verum Corpus by W. A Mozart

Arranged for 8 horns. This piece was originally for four part chorus, organ and string orchestra. The chorus parts are in the first 4 horn parts and the accompaniment parts are the 5-8 parts. The first 4 parts can be played by themselves as a chorale with a few rests left out.

This is a wonderful piece that requires sensitive playing but is not technically difficult. If you have a large group, twelve to sixteen, the best idea is to use one on a part for the accompaniment and put everyone else on the chorale parts. Keep at least a two to one ratio to get the effect of a chorus with strings. The 5th part is important as it is the first violin part so it needs a good player.

Death Hath Deprived Me by Thomas Weelkes

5 parts. A wonderful, slow madrigal written upon the death of Thomas Morely, this is a little more esoteric than the other arrangements. It is, however, a beautiful piece of the Renaissance era.

There is $.50 tax on each arrangement if you are a CA resident. The tax on the three arrangements purchased together is $1.24.

The easiest way to order is using PayPal. If you open a free PayPal account, you can send money to my email address (wrider@earthlink.net) from a checking account or credit card at no cost to you.
