We played Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring last night at rehearsal and was amazed at how effortlessly it sounded when played. You can tell Mr. Coletti is a brass player because the way it is arranged and not taxing on any one instrument. The melody is passed between the instruments seamlessly and it lays very well in the key that it is arranged. I am a teacher and purchased it for my honors brass quintet (high school age) and am so happy with this purchase. I will recommend this to teachers with advanced level players as well as my professional musician friends as a great sounding arrangement of this classic piece that won't 'kill their chops'.
