O Salutaris Hostia (Eriks Esenvalds arr. Phillip Littlemore)

£35.00

O Salutaris Hostia is one of Ēriks Ešenvalds’ most popular pieces. Two soloists, which can be played by either cornets or euphoniums, drift across the soft band accompaniment, alternately echoing and imitating each other or joining together in thirds. The effect is quietly ecstatic, a brief moment of adoration and wonderment.

Description

O Salutaris Hostia is one of Ēriks Ešenvalds’ most popular pieces. Originally written for female voices, the composer later created a version for full choir upon which this arrangement is based. It has a gentle meditation with the two soloists drifting across the soft band accompaniment, alternately echoing and imitating each other or joining together in thirds. The effect is quietly ecstatic, a brief moment of adoration and wonderment.

This arrangement can be played with either two cornets or two euphoniums as soloists as the accompaniment works just as effectively with either.
