Written for Tubalaté (2 tubas and 2 euphoniums), who recorded it - as can be heard in the sound sample here, and which appears on their CD "Move"
(Their CDs can be ordered from: http://www.tuba-artist.com/shop/tubalate-c-167_174.html )
The underlying theme is the old Gregorian chant Te lucis ante terminum (To Thee before the close of day...).
The score in the sample here is untransposed, but the zip file contains both transposed and untransposed parts, for convenience.
Although this is a slow piece, I have rated it as "Advanced" because of the large amount of stamina and breath control required. It featured in a tuba quartet workshop in Greensboro a few years ago, to great acclaim.
