Damn good piece Montage. Also, Odin (can't remember composer) has a chromatic run upwards starting on the pedal Bb we are chatting about.
While we're on the subject of that B natural, it is a note and should be played. I feel incomplete if there is a note missing in my arsenal, which ever note that may be. Probably my main reason for wanting a 5th valve on my Bb tuba purchase.
I've also written a piece that calls for that low b natural. Not deliberately, that's just how the key and the nature of the movement developed.
