Details

Handel's "Arrival of the Queen of Sheba" is one of his many biblical oratorios and was first performed in 1748. Sheba, the powerful Queen and her entourage, travels to the Holy Temple in Jerusalem to meet the wise King Solomon. Tradition states that after Solomon correctly answered the riddle that she asked, a romance developed. From this encounter Sheba bore Solomon's child, King Menelek, the founder of the Ethiopian empire.

This arrangement of about two minutes in length, for Brass Quintet with optional Timpani is for advanced performers. The 1st B-flat Trumpet part can be performed on Piccolo Trumpet or E-flat trumpet.

The work has a joyous, regal and fanfare-like feel.
