||"Silent Night" by Gruber (1818) has been arranged for Brass quartet by Bill Schmid. This is a short, but clever arrangement for 2 Trumpets and 2 Trombones starting in Ab and then moving to the key of A. Everyone gets a shot at the melody...nice moving lines.“Silent Night” is one of the most popular Christmas carols. Its music was composed in 1818 by Franz Gruber, a church organist, to words that were written by his parish priest, Joseph Mohr. True to his location in a rustic community, the song is very similar to folk music of the region. This arrangement for brass quartet, written in 2011, features some reharmonization, while preserving the serene nature of the original.
