Joshua Fit The Battle - 6 Brass Sheet Music

Here's a fun arrangement of the traditional spiritual for 6-piece brass ensemble that is always well received. The melody gets passed around between the various parts of the ensemble and there's some tasty soli sections as well. A great option for wanting a swing-band type of chart on a brass ensemble program.

Scored for 3 Trumpets, Tenor and Bass Trombones, and Tuba., the Tuba gets first crack at the melody before taking on a walking bass role afterward. After an improv solo opportunity for the Lead Trombonist, there’s a section labeled “EXTREMELY Laid Back” featuring a large shift in rhythmic and harmonic density that works best when observing the wide dynamic variations, playing really light and easy before cranking out the accented off-beat hits and coming right back down before wrapping it all up at the ending.

Also available in an edition for Trombone Ensemble
