O Salutaris Hostia

Arranged for Brass Band by Phillip Littlemore

Eriks Esenvalds / Phillip Littlemore


O Salutaris Hostia is one of Eriks Ešenvalds’ most popular pieces. Originally written for female voices, the composer later created a version for full choir on which this arrangement is based. It has a gentle meditation with the two soloists drifting across the soft band accompaniment, alternately echoing and imitating each other or joining together in thirds. The effect is quietly ecstatic, a brief moment of adoration and wonderment. This arrangement can be played with either two cornets or two euphoniums as soloists as the accompaniment works just as effectively with either.
