In the summer of 2020, Aaron Hettinga did a number of arrangements of works by composer Nathaniel C. Davis.
During the course of these arranging projects, Aaron kept tabs on the nature of the work done and assembled his observations into a non-scholarly paper, posted here for free download. In this writing, there are collected observations on the style of the pieces, insights into the necessary arranging decisions and so on.
This free pdf download (below) will be of interest to those curious about Nathaniel Davis, his works, early 20th century trombone music, and arranging techniques.
