Re: Easter Hymn done extremely well

Mostly - for the past several years - I've been playing tuba and euphonium (using the euphonium to cover the always-numerous - as this choir director is really fond of 'em - Richard Webster hymn settings' bass trombone parts) at an Episcopal Church.
Year-in/year-out, the trumpets have been so-so.
This year, I recommended a new-gun-in-town 1st trumpet person (wow...great), but the contractor was unable to locate a really strong 2nd trumpet (as can be heard) :roll: .
I tried to record this entire hymn setting of [the particular hymn we've been discussing all along] by Richard Webster (reduced from the original eight parts to only five + timp's)...but I missed pushing the correct button on my phone just before the downbeat...
...and - when the timpani is REALLY loud - (per the phone mic's recording characteristics) there's not much euphonium in the mix.

Bump- since many or most of us won't be playing tomorrow, at least we have an excellent performance to listen to.

Glad to help, Brett. Here's another rendition of this same basic arrangement, enhanced with handbells. You may recognize the church from Diane Bish's "The Joy of Music" series:

and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir doing this same arrangement- but only two verses?!? C'mon:

That kind and wise-looking (correct on both counts) black minister in the video - sadly - died about a week ago. This current virus thing was credited.

Sorry to hear, Joe. Maybe once this mess is over, they can pull the orchestra together for the memorial service. That would be a fitting send-off.

one more from that same Easter Sunday:




a year later...
different players..., arguably, a different level of music (ie. more resembling "praise music"), recording quality (perhaps?) not quite as good...,
still: tuba is plenty hot in the mix :shock:

I just listened to Christ the Lord is Risen Today. Both beautiful and powerful.
Please, young people - listen to these services. There's no 'worship team' out there that can compare.
Thanks to all who continue to offer real music in worship services.

J.W. Pepper has this, in a choir/organ/brass arrangement if you're interested. This is the one we use. The fanfare is different (shorter) in this version, but it still works extremely well:

different annual gig - always Palm Sunday...
some Jezak...some good stuff...some traditional...
(recording) microphone was only the one hooked to the video camera, so... :roll:

2:18 - 6:45
14:42 - 15:42
15:46 - 19:08 (loud)
24:50 - 27:10
42:50 - 44:40 (a bit of the Verdi Requiem...no room for the cimbasso on the platform...and would have been too much of a distraction from the service)
101:50 - 105:30 (a well-known Clydesdale bombasto)
105:33 - 108:44
