Another request was sent in by one of our friends and the suggestion was to start with only one trumpet and build on each of the five verses. A trumpet alone seemed a little intimidating for a younger player so I added a sustained notes in the organ to add support and give the feeling of a chant.

Each verse is clearly indicated on each part for easier reading and the organ is written out completely even though each verse is the same in the organ part. Some may choose to cut it down for easier music stand issues.

This could be done by one, two or three trumpet players with equal success.
