More Plog because I have a weakness - MASSIVE BRASS ATTACK! Portuguese Youth Brass Ensemble - Varitations on Amazing Grace - Anthony Plog

So while I do love Plog's treatment of brass I have a soft spot for cool rearrangements of classic sacred tunes; specifically Amazing Grace. I'll also listen to anyone doing anything with Old Hundredth. This is a fabulous and approachable arrangement with a few cool shapes and colors. It's not a trumpet ensemble but some of my opinions on good arranging are still applicable (particularly that it does not overstay its welcome or fall too in love with one clever idea over another).
