George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) completed the oratorio Alexander's Feast, HWV 75 in 1736, and it was throughout his life and after one of his most consistently successful works. Written to celebrate Saint Cecilia's Day, it describes a banquet held by Alexander the Great in a Persian city where the musician Timotheus sings, arousing various moods in Alexander until he burns down the city in revenge for his dead Greek soldiers. Revenge! Timotheus Cries! from the beginning of Part 2 is a bass aria that begins the incitement for Alexander to take his vengeful action. R. Winston has arranged this for numerous brass instrument solos with piano accompaniment for the developing to intermediate musician, and these are a wonderful selection for recital or contest. Versions for cornet/trumpet/euphonium T.C., trombone/euphonium B.C., and tuba are available from the publisher.
