Eighth Note Publications Flexible Band/String Series provides ultimate flexibility for ensembles with incomplete instrumentation or odd combinations. These pieces are playable by as few as 5 woodwind, brass or string players with or without percussion. This creates the opportunity for a mixed quintet to perform these titles but also allows for performance for 10-15 players up to full a band/orchestra with parts doubling. Great for music camps, contest use or any band room that has non-standard instrumentation.
This is one of Handel's best known melodies. This version of the famous Hail the Conquering Hero opens with a solo, gradually adds voices and builds in dynamic, then the sound drops to a duet which starts the building again. Everyone gets a section of melody making it interesting for all. (3:10)
