This arrangement needs some explanations for it is the result of the work of three people. The composer is Joseíto Fernández, the original arranger is unfortunately unknown and the transcription was done by yours truly. I loved the way the original arranger used all the “empty spaces” for effect.

All I had to do was to move the parts around to be played by a Brass Choir rather than the original scoring. In addition I changed keys to fit the new instrumentation, cut out half of the arrangement which was too repetitious, fill in empty spaces, change it from a flute solo to a trumpet solo, rewrite rhythmic notation which made it easier to read, insert a new intro, add a cadenza at the end and a few hundred small changes.
