This started out as a piano piece and with a few changes, become a trumpet quintet. All parts are very easy with much repetition throughout. I added two modulations for interest and kept the keys well within the ability of younger players. This would sound even fuller if all parts were doubled in a trumpet choir. This is the kind of arrangement that could be sight read on the job by more advanced players.
