Samuel Scheidt's Galliard Battaglia, composed around 1621, has become one of the most recognized works in the brass quintet repertoire. This secular work was originally written for five viols, however it's nature makes it perfect for brass instruments. The Galliard dance style, very popular at the time serves as a perfect "foil" for the music's echoing back-and-forth fanfares and brilliant scales.

Neal Bennett of iTromboni has done a great job of arranging this music for Trombone quintet of 2 altos (possible on tenor also), 2 tenors & bass, playable by advanced performers. Total length of about 2 minutes.

The brilliant sound sample is taken from a live performance by iTromboni.
