Not Weary Yet

This score is by Salvation Army composer Ken Collins in the United States. Although it contains a wide range of parts, the music can be played by a  small band. Bass clef parts are also available.

The essential parts are as follows:
1. Soprano - 1st cornet
2. Alto - 2nd cornet and 1st horn
3. Tenor - 1st baritone and 2nd horn
4. Bass - Bass Bb and Bass Eb

You will also find the euphonium part to be a useful addition.

All other parts are employed in doubling or decoration.

Scoring

 Some of the music in this section was originally written for a British style brass band in Medan (the provincial capital of North Sumatra, Indonesia). These compositions therefore reflect both the strengths and weaknesses of the young players in that particular band as well as the peculiarities of the brass band style in general.

Please note that in brass band music a sharp distinction is made between the euphonium and the baritone part, something that is rare in concert or wind band music. Since it is an essential part of the harmony, the baritone part is more important than the euphonium part. The latter being little more than a decoration.

By taking advantage of the scoring scheme given below, you can play Salute to Medan and O Tano Batak with just four players! Alternatively, enjoy the richer harmonic colour provided by the entire section.

Brass Band Scores

 

This section contains music written for brass band, by which is meant a British-style performing ensemble comprising instruments such as the cornet and tenor (alto) horn, as well as trombones, baritones, euphoniums and B-flat and E-flat tubas. Some (limited) parts are also written for percussion. 

Following the brass band tradition, all such music is written in the treble clef. However, I have tried to provide parts for euphonium, trombone, baritone and tuba in the bass clef whenever possible. Such parts are usually available for separate download as a "brass ensemble" score. 

Please note that a sharp distinction is made in the scoring between the euphonium and the baritone part, something that is rare in concert or wind band music. Since it is an essential part of the harmony, the baritone part is more important than the euphonium part - the latter being little more than a decoration. See the section on scoring for more information.

Salute to Medan

When asked about the folk songs of Southeast Asia, most people (if they know any such songs at all!) usually cite standards such as Chan Mali Chan and Bengawan Solo. However, there are hundreds of others. This selection, written especially for the Medan Band by Australian composer Noel Jones, includes four well loved traditional Indonesian songs from across the archipelago that are hardly known outside the country. The arrangement was written for brass band, but I have provided a brass ensemble score as well. If fact, by following the scoring scheme given at the bottom of this page, you can get your whole concert band to play along.

As is standard practice on this website, the music has been released into the public domain for non-commercial use. The music should not provide any technical difficulties for the average lower secondary school band.
