Lotti, Antonio – Crucifixus for 8-part Trombone ensemble.
This product is available for digital download only
Crucifixus by Antonio Lotti is part of his Credo in F. This motet of 8 voices is a wonderful example of polyphony with many suspensions thrown in for good measure. The music is sweet with a beautiful sadness, making it a work that touches most listeners in a very personal way.
Mr. Brink has transposed the work down a fifth into the key of F minor (resolving to F major at the conclusion), otherwise keeping the music true to its origins.
This 4 minute work has a range of up to high B-flat for the 1st part. The top four parts are in tenor clef.
