While traveling with the National Capital Band in April 2017, the Brass Crest webmaster was privileged to meet Bandmaster Ken Collins (Albany, Oregon). Bandmaster Collins has begun a new initiative for small brass bands, making arrangements that can be played by as few as four players. The Brass Crest is pleased to be able to make these pieces available as free downloads in PDF format by special arrangement with Bandmaster Collins. The series consists of re-scored Salvation Army classics as well as new arrangements. We anticipate that new arrangements will be released approximately once a week. For a more detailed explanation of the series, and to download the files, please click here.
The first piece to be released is Nicely Saved (Ray Steadman-Allen) as re-scored by Bandmaster Collins. Download the PDF by using the link below.
