Everyone should recognize this famous fanfare but because of the range, most shy away from doing it. To make it more available to the average player without a piccolo trumpet, I offer this combination- parts include the original key to be performed with a C trumpet or a lower version to be performed by a C trumpet. I have also included the part for a Bb trumpet in the original as well as the lower key. Also included is the score and the Organ parts in both keys.

Let me know if you program it in the lower key. It would be interesting to find out if the audience could hear the difference. I’m betting not!

    Wonderful service to our community. I particularly like how every level of performer is addressed with appropriate selections.

    Still looking for the Telemann Sonata #1 “Dolce” score. Am unable to locate it on your website.

    please advise how to obtain and/or purchase.
