This is the Twenty-Sixth in a series of arrangements composed/arr./trans. for use in Solo/Ensemble contests and will help fill the need for new material for competing middle school and high school players. Each of these ensembles are selected to show the very best qualities of your ensemble and through careful editing, each has a professional sound with only an average playing ability.

John Rutter is my all time favorite composer and when I heard "The Lord Is My Shepherd" from his Requium, I had to do my best to make it available as a brass ensemble number for it fit perfectly for a brass quintet. The horn was my first choice for the solo part and I am very pleased with the outcome. I reduced original symphony score down to a quintet and piano ensemble which was not easy.

My wish is to be able to perform this on a concert or church service in the near future.

If you are in a brass quintet and have an opportunity to play this, please let me know for I would love to hear it.

I would rate this as my best arrangement in several years.

As a contest piece, nothing could be better. Nothing!
