Bill is a work utilizing several of the themes used in Of the Faith (CREATE LINK). I had occasion to produce a large brass/organ/timpani concert in 2014 and created a new work which used roughly 40% of the material from Of The Faith, eliminating the aleatoric sections and many of the difficult mixed meters.

Scored for 6 trumpets, 2 Horns, 3 Trombones, Tuba, Organ, and Timpani, it is a challenging work (particularly for the first two trumpets, that range of which is challenging - I had a couple off jazz high-note specialists available for the concert).

The concert recording was unsatisfactory, so I have no live recording of this piece; the mp3 is a FINALE extraction - the sound isn’t particularly satisfying but it certainly gives you a good idea of how the piece goes.

The organ part is also difficult, but playable with practice.

Bill sells for $100.00 for the hard copy, $80.00 for the pdf’s
