This is another in our series of Easter descants. I recorded all four parts on the first time through the hymn and only descant one with the organ on the second time to give you a better idea as to how the descants work with the organ.

This arrangement also includes the following possibilities-

1. Transposed hymn melody for trumpet solo.
2. Transposed parts for a trumpet duet/ trio and/or quartet.
3. Transposed melody for one trumpet and choice of three additional descants.

Start collecting these descant arrangements and be a hero to every organist you run into.
