    Awarded 2018: Congratulations to composer Edward Jacobs on being awarded a prestigious Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship.

    Peter H. Bloom gave a lecture on “Effective Writing for Flutes and the Contemporary Flutist” at the 2018 Snow Pond Composers Workshop.  In his presentation, Mr. Bloom discussed various topics using four contemporary works published by Noteworthy Sheet Music, including Amuse-Bouche and Soliloquy III, as examples.  We later published a free text version of this excellent presentation on our website, in the Reviews and Articles section, including some of the audio clips and supplemental written materials that Mr. Bloom used as demonstrations.

    Wilt heden nu treden, nowadays more commonly known as We Gather Together, is a Christian hymn of Dutch origin composed by Adrianus Valerius and first published in 1626 (imslp.org); it was later harmonized by Eduard Kremser (en.wikipedia.org). In the United States, We Gather Together is the most popular song traditionally associated with the Thanksgiving holiday. The Thanksgiving tradition in the Pratt household goes back as far as John Pratt (b. 1931) can remember, and when it fell to him to play all three stanzas at his family's annual gathering, he got interested in livening it up.  He has now created an arrangement of We Gather Together for brass ensemble that lends new excitement and interesting harmonies to this old favorite. The opportunistic half-step modulations introduced to help amateur voices warm up also brighten successive stanzas for brass. The Noteworthy Sheet Music edition includes two variations of this brass arrangement, for quartet or quintet. Some of the parts (in addition to tuba) differ in the quartet and quintet arrangements, and we are including both complete sets of scores and parts in this single publication.
    Note that for these publications, the parts should be printed one-sided since they are only one page each and we have not inserted blank filler pages.

    Click to listen to an mp3 of a computer-generated rendition of the brass quartet arrangement; your live performances will of course be more realistic and appealing.

    Brass Quartet: Score, 3 pages; Parts for C-Trumpet-1, C-Trumpet-2, F-Horn, and Trombone, 1 page each.  Brass Quintet: Score, 3 pages; Parts for C-Trumpet-1, C-Trumpet-2, F-Horn, Trombone, and Tuba, 1 page each.  Total, 18 pages.
