The Prince of Denmark’s March is one of the most requested wedding pieces for Brass Quintet in the repertoire. This arrangement (for Kensington Brass) is in the original concert D Major arranged in a traditional processional style with all the ornamentations and opulence expected from the baroque style. The first trumpet part may be played on either a D or A piccolo, and all of the other instruments have parts provided for the usual transpositions.
There is also a useful cut to made if your procession will be shorter (usually for brides) to make this a 1 minute version.
