Amen

Final Chorus from

The Messiah

by

George Frederic Handel

Transcribed for Concert Band by

Kenneth Grace
Amen Chorus from The Messiah

Handels accompaniment for the Amen chorus contains mostly the same material as the
four voice parts. And given the interwoven, fugue-like character of the piece, there is
little need for anything more. For this transcription, I used only the four voice parts,
breaking up the concert band into four voices as follows:

Soprano: Flute, oboe, clarinet 1, alto sax 1, cornet 1.


Alto: Clarinet 2, alto sax 2, cornet 2, French horn 1&3, trombone 1.
Tenor: Clarinet 3, alto clarinet, tenor sax, cornet 3, French horn 2&4, trombone 2,
baritone-treble clef.
Bass: Bassoon, bass clarinet, baritone sax, trombone 3, baritone-bass clef, tuba,
string bass.

Depending on the makeup of a particular band, it may be necessary to have players


perform different parts than usual, in order to achieve a balance among the four voices.
Balance is especially important as the voices enter one at a time at the beginning of the
piece.

The indicated phrasing is the same as in the four voice parts, which often have extended
A-s, followed by short -mens. It may not be practical for all instruments to perform the
phrasing as written, but at least the players will know the desired effect.

The original Amen is in the key of D, like the Hallelujah Chorus. Here it is moved down
a step to the slightly friendlier key of C Major.

The piece adapts to a wide range of tempos. Some modern choral performances are quite
G
fast, e.g., =132. I prefer a somewhat slower tempo that will allow the beauty of the
music to emerge, while still retaining a sense of motion. Note that Handels indicated
tempo is Allegro Moderato, while the Hallelujah Chorus is Allegro.
- Ken Grace

Notes:
This arrangement is dedicated to the Ocean County College Concert Band, Toms River, New
Jersey, and its director, Gerald A. Risden. I am proud to be a member of this fine organization.
The band gave the premiere performance on December 14, 2003.

I have released this work to the Public Domain. You are free to copy, distribute and perform the work.

The parts and score were produced using NoteWorthy Composer software from NoteWorthy
Software, Inc. I will be happy to email NWC files, one with the score, a second with the
individual parts.
