I have been following with interest everyone's list of "top 5" quintet works. Here's the list as compiled so far:

Malcolm Arnold - Quintet
Anonymous  Die Bankelsagelieder
J. S. Bach Contrapunctus IX
Bach - Toccata & Fugue (Canadian Brass version)
Samuel Barber Adagio for Strings
Bozza Sonatine
Brahms Es Ist Ein Ros Entsprungen
Cheetham - Scherzo
Debussy Girl with the Flaxen Hair
Dukas - Fanfare from La Peri
Ingolf Dahl    Music for Brass Instruments
Victor Ewald- Symphony for Brass (Quintet No. 1)
Ewald Quintets 1 and 3
Eric Ewazen Frost Fire
Eric Ewazen   Colchester Fantasy
Etler: Quintet
Jack End- Three Salutations
Jack Gallagher- Toccata
Gionanni Gabrieli Anything
Gregson: Equale Dances
Joseph Horovitz- Music Hall Suite
Herbert Haufrect- Suite for Brass Quintet
Collier Jones- 4 mvts for 5 Brass
Lutoslawski: Mini Overture
Mussorgky: Pictures (Canadian Brass arr.)
Reynolds Quintet
Frank Smith Three Chorale Settings
Stewart - Brass Quintet No.7
Scheidt/reynolds  Centone 5

This is a very good list of "must play" literature, and with the exception of the quintets by Ewald, Arnold and Cheetam( totally understandable), there has been very little duplication on lists. let's keep the list growing!
