Austrian composer Franz Schubert (1797-1828) was best known for his songs, piano works, chamber music and symphonies. He is widely considered the leading exponent of the early romantic style and despite his short life span wrote over a thousand works.
These canons and chorales are taken from the wealth of 3-part choral music he wrote for male voice choir. They use text taken from the works of German poets such as Schiller, Hölty, and Matthisson. As the songs were written for two tenor voices and a bass voice (or other permutations) they lend themselves particularly well to the trombone trio or trombone choir.
These have been arranged for trombone trio by Helen Vollam. Scored for 2 tenor trombones (tenor clef) and bass trombone (bass clef), but can be played by 3 tenor trombones.
Score and parts provided.
