Does anyone know of music for a mixed ensemble of woodwinds that includes a saxophone?

Thanks!

Hi tuscab,
sorry, can't resist to advertise my serenade in four movements for flute, oboe, clarinet, tenorsax and bassoon again (several threads were I chimed in this way - if someone wants to play it, drop me a line): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNWIPjvfIHs (midisounds with score)

I know that the great Victor Morrosco composed a woodwind quintett with alto sax instead of french horn. I decided to go the tenor way because Imho the tenor range fit's better.


I'm a big fan of Charles Koechlin who often wrote for sax, but I'm not aware of a composition with only woodwinds.
Here a beautiful piece for flute, alto and piano:

A reed quintet is a new standard ensemble: oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bass clarinet, bassoon. See my thread on this topic in the Classical subforum here. Lots of music is available.

Do you mean smaller than a classically orchestrated wind ensemble?
