Easter is less than two months away, which means you’re probably in the midst of rehearsing your cantata or ordering last-minute choir anthems, choosing your service music (and practicing that Widor Toccata again), and hiring brass players for the big day (and maybe the week before, as well).
But what will you have them play? Besides brass parts that may be available to accompany your choral selections, and standard repertoire they may have prepared to play for the prelude and postlude, it’s up to you to find hymn arrangements and any other music you’d like them to provide in worship.
Looking for a few new brass arrangements for this year?
I’m thrilled to introduce Two Easter Hymn Settings for Brass Quintet: creative and well-crafted settings of two well-known Easter hymns: Jesus Shall Reign (also known as I Know That My Redeemer Lives) and The Strife Is O'er, arranged for brass quintet with optional congregation.
This collection includes two different settings (A and B) of each hymn tune. Have your brass quintet play them as prelude music on Easter Sunday or use them as hymn accompaniments on select verses.
*Please note: Both A and B settings fit the standard harmonizations found in most hymnals.*

Jesus Shall Reign
Also known as I Know That My Redeemer Lives, this stately hymn may be used as part of the prelude or postlude music or as a hymn accompaniment. Two different settings are included; both fit the standard harmonization found in most hymnals.
The Strife Is O’er
A classic Easter hymn, originally composed by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina in 1591, this setting may be played alone as part of the service music, or used as a hymn accompaniment on select verses (your choice). Two different settings are included; both fit the standard harmonization found in most hymnals.
