4 FRENCH RENAISSANCE DANCES Terpsichore (1612) Micheal Praetorius (1571-1621) was a German composer who over a long period of time collected and arranged 312 short dances written by various French renaissance dance-masters. Terpsichore from 1612 is originally arranged for 4-6 voices and were played by the various instruments available at the time. This arrangement for brass band by Norwegian trumpeter and conductor Arvid Anthun, is divided into 4 antiphonal choirs and the full effect of the arrangement dependents on the choruses being deployed apart. If the stage is small the choirs can be placed in a half circle behind the normal band setup. To obtain a great balance Choir IV can be reinforced with a piccolo trumpet (Cornet 5). If no piccolo trumpet the part should be played as written on a Bb Cornet. The suggested band setup as shown below gives the best effect if Choir I & III (from position 2) play without music. 4 French Renaissance Dances was used as the opening piece in Stavanger Brass Band’s winning program for the Siddis Brass 1995.
