This was originally written for two tenor and one bass ensemble and after major alterations, it works well for instrumental application.

The changes I made are the following-
• Key changes
• Clef changes
• Repeated notes were sustained due to the omition of text
• Dynamics were added
• Triplets were grouped into one flag for each three notes

This three movement piece would be a great addition to any trumpet ensemble concert. The use of flugelhorns is completely optional but the sound seems to lend itself to the larger instruments.
