Guillaume Dufay was a major Franco-Flemish composer in the 15th Century. He was also a priest and wrote a great deal of sacred music as well as secular chansons. These 3-part pieces are from his secular works. The horn and trombone parts (contra and tenor) are pretty much in the same range so the horn is often rather low in the its register, while the trombone is quite high. These are such wonderful pieces that the Yale Brass Trio always enjoyed playing them. Enjoy that exotic Burgundian sound!
Included in your purchase is a PDF file of the entire suite of six pieces, along with the MP3 recordings of the Yale Brass Trio performing the full suite. The members of the Yale Brass Trio, Allan Dean (trumpet), William Purvis (horn), and Scott Hartman (trombone) played early music arrangements to open their annual concerts at Yale from 2002 to 2019, and the full series will be coming to qPress.
