Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory is part of a growing collection of Americana Miniatures, short, mostly instrumental arrangements of characteristically American folk music. This arrangement is set for four trombones, or three trombones and tuba, but is also suitable for any combination of four low brass instruments in ‘C’. The music is instantly recognizable and appealing to broad audiences and playable by musicians of moderate skill.
Performance by SAGA Saxophone Quartet
For Saxophone Quartet (Bb Soprano, Eb Alto, Bb Tenor, Eb Baritone)
Meditation on CLEANSING FOUNTAIN is a setting of an archetypal Early American camp meeting tune interpreted through the lens of compositional techniques developed by 20th Century composers, such as the quintessential American composer Aaron Copland. The result is thus a new and uniquely American take on an American classic. It is meant to be simultaneously fresh and familiar, and at home in contemporary artistic or sacred settings while still being easy on the ears. The music is set for traditional saxophone quartet (Bb Soprano, Eb Alto, Bb Tenor, Eb Baritone) and is suitable for intermediate to advanced players. Purchase price include full score and set of parts.
