This is the same hymn we have all played for years and have hated every one of those (9) tah, ta,ta,ta, tah’s. We have been asked to play this on a concert at the end of the month and I decided it was time to make it a little more interesting. The original was written for three trumpets and we needed four parts. I started the arrangement with the original trumpet parts and each of the later entrances got a little more elaborate. I did keep one measure that I liked from the original.
