Vivaldi : Et in terra pax from the Gloria (Arranged for Brass quintet)
Product Code : Vivaldi_02
Vivaldi wrote at least three settings of the hymn Gloria in excelsis Deo, whose words date probably from the 4th Century and which is an integral part of the Latin Mass. Two survive: RV 588 and RV 589. A third, RV 590, is presumed lost. The RV 589 Gloria which is where our arrangement derives from, is a familiar and popular piece among sacred works by the composer. It was probably written at about the same time as RV 588, possibly in 1715. RV 589, is known more simply as the Vivaldi "Gloria" due to its outstanding popularity. Et in terra pax is the 2nd of the 12 movements from the Gloria, and is scored for SATB choir and orchestra. We are delighted to be able to offer our arrangement of this fine piece for the first time for a Brass ensemble. In our arrangement, we have had to decide on the optimum balance between the choral parts, and orchestral accompaniment. We do hope you will enjoy trying wonderful piece out. Technically we would class this as fairly easy
In most cases, this is the arrangment being played back using the Sibelius video export facility, but in some cases this is an actual performance by groups commissioned by Undiscovered Brass to actually perform the arrangment.
