Orchestral blend

I participate in a saxophone quartet and we recently signed up for a joint concert with a woodwind quintet. One of the saxophone players is the oboe player in the quintet. We thought it would be nice to do one piece as a combined ensemble, so I reworked a saxophone choir arrangement of Pavane by Gabriel Fauré for use with woodwind quintet and saxophone trio. It occurred to me that this might be a useful vehicle for helping saxophonists learn to blend in an orchestral setting. So, I've posted the transcription if you are interested: [URL="http://www.classicalsax.com/Pavane/Pavane.htm"]http://www.classicalsax.com/Pavane/Pavane.htm[/URL] As always, if you choose to use this, I would appreciate hearing about it and receiving a recording if that is possible. I can be reached at email. Best regards,
