Comments:I'll share my version of the Star Spangled Banner for brass quintet. It's strongly influenced by 21 years of experience performing the Armed Forces version of the anthem, but I managed to add a few of my own ideas and a couple influenced by a recording of the version from the Brass Band Journal of the late 1800's.
I wrote it in the strange key because I like the sound the ensemble got in this pitch range. There's also a hidden stave for Eb trumpet. It plays a lot easier on Eb.
