Default Saxophone quartet - AATB vs. SATB

It would be much more useful for our high school student's group if the saxophone quartet music could be made available with two alto parts plus tenor and baritone (AATB) instead of the traditional soprano, alto, tenor and baritone (SATB) configuration, as none of the kids currently plays the soprano sax. If you were to transcribe the soprano parts to alto, I would join tomorrow and download all of the sax quartet music, especially the christmas carols! Thanks for considering this request. - Charlie in Davis, CA

Dear Charlie thank you for your posting.

Of course, we could simply add an "optional" alto sax part to replace the soprano part. What do you think about that? I think that's possible to do pretty easily, unless the range is too high for the alto sax and all the rest of the parts need to be transposed. I will look into that by starting with the Christmas Carols.

Thank you again for your kindness and interest.
