   25. Easter Trombone Quartets 
    A word of warning----4 of these 7 selections are not basic SATB arrangements.  They are 
   challenging arrangements, not to be sightread at a service.  And two of those 4 are popular 
    religious songs  (not from the hymnal), whose words are apropos to Easter.   In a pinch, 
    the two challenging hymns could be played only the first chorus (repeated),  which is a less 
    complicated chorus and in the same key as the hymnal.  The other 3 selections are 
    basic SATB arrangements, sightreadable, and in the same key as the hymnal, thus 
    assuring that at least some of this music could be used at easter with  minimal rehearsal. 
    Complete audio demos: 
    He Is Risen (180)            Old Rugged Cross         Day of Resurrection (210)
    How Great Thou Art        Easter Hymn (207)        Crown Him With Many Crowns
    This Joyful Eastertide

   21. Trombone 4tet Hymns and Spirituals
    Eight great melodies, from the hymnal repertoire and beyond! Some are reharmonized and

    couple fun ones with a beat!  A great deal of this volume is not overly complicated, so that
    it can be dependably performed in a respectful manner in church.  But of course it also 
    would be great in a secular performance, since these are wonderful melodies.  Audio clips: 
    A Mighty Fortress Is Our God      Eternal Father         Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho
