Gabrieli - Hodie Christus Natus Est for 8-part Trombone Choir
Hodie Christus natus est (Today Christ is Born) is an a cappella double-choir choral motet from Gabrieli’s famous Sacrae symphoniae of 1597. Mr. Chasanov has arranged this music beautifully for a eight-part Trombone Choir/Ensemble of two four-part choirs. The music is full of remarkable rhythmic counterpoint demanding full concentration from the performers. The four-minute arrangement is appropriate for moderately advanced performers. This is an ideal choice to be used for general recitals or as a jubilant work for the Christmas period.
Instrumentation: 6 Tenor Trombones and 2 Bass Trombones.
