Score & Parts
The Silver Swan, My Heart to Thee Now Makes its Plea and Now is the Month of Maying make up this set of famous madrigals for 4 trombones. There are two slower melodies and one fast one to add variety to this suite. Each piece could be played by itself or all three could be played together as a set. These simple vocal pieces are excellent to develop ensemble playing techniques such as balance and intonation. This arrangement is part of an interchangeable set that can combine any number of instruments (flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trumpets, horns, trombones and tubas).
