This was one of the most enjoyable projects I have done for some time for when you are working with “great material”, the arrangement almost writes itself. The parts are much easier than you would think for the tempo does not get too fast for an average high school player. As with most of my charts, everyone has a chance at the “good stuff”. This will require some independent playing for everyone has their own part and most of the arrangement is contrapuntal in style. The opening can be played with four trumpets without any loss of richness.
