Josef Rheinberger was a prolific composer , eminent teacher and was one of the last of the European composers who had employment as a Òcourt musicianÓ. Originally published as a six part choral setting in 1873, the text from Abendlied (Evening Song) is taken from Luke 24:29: Bide with us, for evening shadows darken, and the day will soon be over. Bradley Palmer has transcribed this heavenly work of 3 minutes in length for six Trombones, bringing out the beautiful spiritual nature of the music. For intermediate performers. Some parts are in Tenor clef.
