    Hello, Larry:
    Good for you. I get most of my TTEE (Tuba Euphonium Quartet) pieces from Cimmaron Music. Some available for download; others need to be shipped. Love them. Here's a link to their brass ensemble pages. https://www.cimarronmusic.com/brass/brass-ensemble
    Good luck.

    Sterling Virtuoso Euphonium with Gold Brass bell (Capitol Pops Band, Capitol Pops Tuba Euphonium Quartet)
    Yamaha YBH-831S Neo Baritone Horn (Joyous Brass, First Baritone)
    Yamaha YBH-301M Marching Baritone (Ophir Prison Marching Kazoo Band and Temperance Society LMTD)
    Yamaha YEP-830 Xeno Bass Trombone (Sacramento Concert Band)
    Euphonium: DW Heritage 4AL (main); K&G 3D (Ophir Prison Band)
    Bass Trombone: Ferguson M Series Jeff Reynolds

  3. I just started a brass quintet (2xtpt, fhorn, bone, tuba) last year. I actually got a lot of music after getting a subscription to Musescore. The good thing about that (especially with non-standard instrumentation like yours) is that you can use the software to transpose parts and replace instruments. I've pulled down conservatively dozens of tunes, from classical, jazz and rock to religious, patriotic and movie music. You can usually get the annual subscription for ~60% off their standard asking price, but even at the full price, it's a bargain if you use it every week, or even every month.

    For some stuff, I still get stuff from traditional publishers. Hickeys is the store I go to for that. They have just about everything, and they're an upstate NY business (Ithaca), so I actually walk in the store from time to time. Plus, they have gear and instruments. Great music shop, whether you're local or not.

    These may be too simple but there are 36 free (public domain) chorales for band. A collection for treble clef and bass clef linked below. Won't work for horn without transposing. Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass parts.

    Chorales for band:

    Snorlax (Jim) on this forum will arrange a 4- or 5-part tune of your choice for decent $.

    He has done several for me and we've been very much pleased with the result.

    Not for now but in about six months around Christmas time, Wade Rackley arranged some really great brass quintet charts called, “Elephant Christmas”. If you’re a member of TubaForum.net pretty sure you could find them there.
