Hmm. Sounds like someone is Chicago bound.

I believe it is Act III of Das Rheingold. It is thinly scored near the beginning of the famous 15 bars with Wagner tuben and Contrabass tuba. You can copy the part out of a score. The score is only about $15-20. Check out the recording of Vienna with Solti from the late 50's. It is truly demonic.

I don't have my score with me, but I seem to remember it happening around page 200 in the Dover score. If you do purchase the Vienna recording, I have the newer "cleaned up" version, than it is on the second CD at track 3 or four. I forget which at the moment.
