Made up of 5 movements, this piece has the flexibility of being performed as a complete set or using the separate movements individually.With solo features in each section, the piece includes:Swing version of “The Church’s One Foundation” inc. Tenor Horn solo. Trad. Jazz “Nearer my God to Thee” inc. Cornet soloBluesy “The Old Rugged Cross” inc. Flugel soloCalypso “How Great Thou Art” inc. Euphonium soloFinale “Just a closer walk with Thee” inc. jazzy Trombone solo.The community gospel choir sound has become very popular in recent years. “Hot Gospel” is my attempt to capture this charismatic experience in a medley of well known sacred music. Each of the five songs chosen follows a similar , a verse for full band followed by a solo. All solos are intended to sound like improvisation.OPTIONAL CUTS This medley is nine minutes long. There could be various reasons for wanting to shorten it. There are five optional cuts, which in each case removes the solo section from each song. If you do all five cuts, the piece would last approximately four and a half minutes. Alternatively, you may wish to only remove some of the solos.
