This week we are offering a brass quintet transcription of Faulte d’Argent by Josquin des Pres as a free download. It is the third of four direct transcriptions that I have done as part of a series. The series is designed to help brass composers get an inside feel for melodic writing within a contrapuntal context.
Most counterpoint arrangements are not true to the original voices. For this series, I wanted to avoid changing the original parts in any way at all. This way, the performers get to experience the original melodies in their purest form.
Here are some interesting links for you! Enjoy your stay :)
