Winter
  Festfanfare

Written in 1960 for the opening of the World Eucharist Congress held in Munich, Germany, this fanfare was originally set for seven part mixed brass choir. It has been transcribed and arranged here for 12 trombones in two 6-part antiphonal choirs with optional tympani. Festfanfare is cast in one continuous movement, with alternating fanfare and chorale sections. Set in E flat, the entire piece is powerful and rousing, the coda section especially so with its Strauss-like layered rhythms and blazing finale. Due to its strong compositional integrity, it can readily be used as an opener or a closer, as well as anywhere within a program, Although tympani is called for in the score, it is not absolutely necessary, and if desired can be covered by performing cues within the trombone choir.
