Gabriel V Brass Ensemble

Gabriel V Brass Ensemble presents Celebration in Brass, an inspiring collection of fanfares, beloved hymns, and masterworks arranged for brass by twentieth-century composers. Music-lovers will appreciate the rich interpretations of beloved hymns by James Curnow, William Mac Davis, Jack Stamp, and Steve Sherrill. Exciting fanfares for Easter and Pentecost introduce Gregorian chant themes to the world of brass, creating a solemn and stunning atmosphere for worship. Original works by David Marlatt and John Stevens, and an arrangement of the Benedictus from Karl Jenkins’ “The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace”, complete this program.

Gabriel V Brass Ensemble dedicates itself to upholding a standard of excellence in music for worship, and to inspiring future generations of musicians. For this recording, the ensemble coordinated with the talented young members of the award-winning Spirit of America Winter Percussion Ensemble. The joy of their work together resonates throughout this program recorded in the stunning acoustics of Mechanics Hall, Worcester, Massachusetts.

Gabriel V Brass Ensemble

    American Record Guide

Inspirational . . . good ensemble, and some beautiful moments.”

    International Trombone Association Journal

“The compositions consistently embody the spirit of unity and new life. All these brilliant contemporary additions to the brass ensemble repertoire bring forth the precision, resonance, and uniformity of the Gabriel V Brass Ensemble and the Spirit of America Winter Percussion Ensemble. All these works complement a concert stage or worship service equally well.”

    Audiophile Audition

“Suave and spirited. . . . The settings on offer here are all as professional as the playing. Given the many virtues on display here, this SACD may well find a larger audience than brass fanciers or fans of hymn tunes in arrangement.” -
