    (Nov. 24, 2016)

  • Low How a Rose for Brass Ensemble with Optional Percussion
    A lovely arrangement designed so the final verse (only) can be sung by an audience with or without organ. The final verse uses the same melody line and key as the hymnals, and similar harmonies.

  • Christmas Gig Book for Trombone Quartet
    A selection of 24 carols for background music, Christmas concert encores, or sing-alongs. The idea is to dispense with intros, bridges, or codas – just decide how many times to play through a carol (usually 2-3) and pass out the lyrics!
