Product Description

This familiar harmonisation of the German Marian Hymn Es ist ein Ros entsprungen (A rose has sprung up) was written by Michael Praetorius in 1609. The simple homophonic first and last verses are performed with a quartet of two trumpets and trombones; for the middle verse, however, is a round—a canon, in which all the instruments play the melody, starting one after another. This cascades down through the entire group, starting with the E-flat trumpet and ending with the tuba.
