Introduction and Processional (191x)
Charles-Augustin Collin (1867-1952)
AATB Saxophone Quartet
Introduction and Processional, by Collin, arranged for AATB Saxophone Quartet. Introduction and Processional are two of the hundreds of organ works by French composer and organist Charles-Augustin Collin. The Introduction , in slow 6/8 time, has the feeling of a hymn or chorale. The Processional, written in 2/4, is stately without being stuffy. It could be suitable for a graduation or even a wedding. The score includes simple directions for extending the processional to fit your event.
This arrangement is for AATB saxophone quartet. Both pieces are rhythmically simple and require little independent playing. The range for each saxophone part, shown below, is fairly narrow.
