I’m interested in combining two instrumental groups: a trombone choir and a French horn choir.

There seems to be a lot of compositions for either trombone choir, or for French horn choir, but not for both.

Perhaps I haven’t come across compositions combining these choirs?

Or perhaps there is an orchestration reason (e.g., sounds are not particularly compatible?)?

Curious about this; either examples of combined choirs (8 to 12 trombones, 8 to 12 horns — I really can’t find any), or, thoughts on why it is hard to find music like this.

    Hi Bruce Simonson. References and recommendations are off topic here, but if you edit your question to focus on what compositional reasons might work against a trombone/French horn combination, I think you'd have a solid and interesting post.
