The extended third edition of the famous 120 Hymns for Brass Band has been freshly engraved with a music font specially commissioned by Wright & Round for ease of reading. The publishers have added a further twenty Christmas Carols making the book unique in that it contains everything needed for worship in one book.
As in previous editions the arrangements are designed to be used from four players upwards.
Apart from the melody and bass, to which the allocation of parts is obvious,
the 2nd and 3rd cornet, solo and 1st horn adhere to the alto part;
similarly the 2nd horn and 1st baritone to the tenor part.
Lest this should appear to leave the tenor line weak, it should be noted that in the main this is strengthened by 2nd baritone and tenor trombone in such a way as to ensure the balance of alto and tenor lines with a normal complement.
The euphonium part is independent but usually doubles either the melody or the bass.
