    I love the recording, the top band at my school played all of enigma last year, and with Phantom Regiment playing in for 2013, I fell in love with the piece.

    Is there anywhere I can get the arrangement?

    Yes contact Kevin Carubia at the email above.

    This is a very demanding arrangement (as is Mike Forbes arrangement of Nimrod for Tuba sextet). We worked with Kevin on the transcription, orchestration, and key signature to get it into the playing range of Travis and myself. The 1st euphonium part goes to high Eb. The 2nd euph part (which I played) interchanges lead lines with the 1st euph, sometimes either picking up or handing off in mid phrase to help save chops. This means that the two euphonium players need to be able to play with similar sound, phrasing, vibrato, etc.
