Geological Survey was composed for Emory Remington and the Eastman Trombone Choir in the 1960’s. It uses stylistic elements from the rock and jazz idioms, elements that were not typically found in the traditional “legit” music of the time. Remington embraced the work in accordance with his belief that his students should be capable of meeting every type of performance demand. Ensemble Publications, in cooperation with the Albam estate, is proud to make Geological Survey available for sale for the first time ever. This newly engraved legal edition corrects numerous errors found in the many multi-generational photocopies that have survived the 40+ years since its first performance. For 12 trombones (9 tenors and 3 basses) in three equal four-part choirs. Full score & parts.

Low Range Studies
Low Range Studies for Trombone is a subset of etudes from the famous School for Trombone in Clefs (aka "Clef Studies"). They have been selected, transposed, edited and annotated by Chicago Symphony Orchestra bass trombonist Charles Vernon. Mr. Vernon has selected 60 of his favorite studies to help tenor trombonists with low range development, and to provide bass trombone players with some extra "bread and butter range" etudes.
Mr. Vernon believes it is important for tenor trombonists to maintain this vulnerable register on a daily basis. Second trombone and bass trombone players constantly play in this register in ensembles. Tenor trombonists who don't work in the middle/low register will have many difficulties playing these studies. This register is a primary building block to producing a free, open and easy sound over the entire range of the instrument. 59 pages.
