Celestial Surroundings for brass sextet, pipe organ, and percussion – new version now available

I revised my composition Celestial Surroundings, and wanted to share that the newly revised score and parts are now available! This has been on my bucket list for some time now, and when I was contacted about the piece, I decided now was the time to give it a makeover. The new version features more developed jazz pipe organ interludes in between the brass features.

Here is a MIDI demo with score of the new version:

3 Trumpets in C, 1 Horn in F, 2 Trombones, *Percussion, Pipe Organ

Duration: 7 minutes

*Optional percussion: The percussion part is optional, and all or some of the part can be played given the availability of the following instruments:

Tubular Bells, Suspended cymbal, Glockenspiel

Celestial Surroundings (2009) was premiered by organist Nicole Marane and brass players from the Atlanta Symphony at Peachtree United Methodist church in Atlanta, GA February 8, 2009.

Here is a recording of the original version from the premiere:
