Salvation is Created arr. Tapper v8

Voice(3), Trumpet(2), Oboe, Viola, Bassoon, Organ(2), Cello, Contrabass
apparently Adagio (MY version of it) was claimed by some company who didnt put the 100s of hours I did into it, so if you want my most popular arrangement, you'll have to email me. This makes a decent placeholder; inspired by my 1st hornline caption head, the inimitable Greg Flores, this is 'salvation' with crazy interval/slur/articulation exercise ideas appended to the final refrain of this class ic by Allegri, who never heard it performed. You can! Not really having one, save 'magical mys tour' -- VK didn't have a corps song; to me and many others from 94 till folding time; this was OUR corps song. enjoy.

This is a great piece for Hornline Warmup - also good for vocal/and/or Mixed Ensemble. Sorry I haven't transposed it yet - if you can read treb&bass for piano/cello/euphonium/any voice in C you are good.

I apologize I replaced "Salvation" to get this new one up ....hit me up if you'd like to use my arrangement of Pavel's timeless hornine warm-up.

This slot is a free place-holder for my new arrangements. If you want my versions of 'Salvation is Created,' 'Fix You,' 'Platoon Swims' or' Road to Perdition' contact me and ill send it.

###UPDATE april 2016####
New warmup posted - "Sanctus" ver 2 ... dedicated to the men credited with creating the original hymnal - Allegri, Schubert ... and Mozart (for pirating The Misererei Mei from the Vatican. Again, the music merely ins[pired the rendition; this music is original. Optimized for playback.

Muisic 1st heard in season 2 finale of "The Leftovers" - when the the preist is redeemed, his wife wakes out of her coma. This is the kind of music Matt Jameson woulda HEARD as this moment takes place - excellent show for new-music lovers.

Plz obtain permission b4 using any arr. for your band, orchestra & or drum corps. thx -t
