Sousa - Semper Fidelis March for Brass Quintet

Composer: Sousa

Arranger: Denroche

$25.00 USD



Sousa considered the Semper Fidelis March his finest work. He composed and dedicated it to the U.S. Marine Band in 1888 after a request by President Chester Arthur.

The instrumentation is for standard Brass Quintet: Trumpets in B-flat, Horn in F, Trombone & Tuba with optional piccolo trumpets and optional rubber hose for the horn in the middle section.

This crowd pleaser has optional parts for piccolo trumpets and the French hose! A great piece in which to use a hose horn to demonstrate the harmonic series. 

This fine arrangement by Steve Denroche is about 2 1/2 minutes in length and appropriate for advanced performers.

Mr. Denroche's arrangement has been recorded by the Carolina Brass from their album "That's A Plenty". Listen below to a great performance of a short selection from this recording:
