Prelude and Fugue for Four Trombones

This might be the earliest work of mine that I still hold as performable.  It is originally scored for two Tenor Trombones, Bass Trombone, and Contrabass Trombone, though the Contrabass Trombone can be played by a second Bass.

This work showed some of my early counterpoint training.  The prelude is a slow and solemn choral that shifts to the direct and noble fugue in A minor.

The work has been played a few times, but sadly, all recordings are now lost.

The work is currently for sale here.
