This was a requested fanfare for this Easter. The requirements were- 16 measures long and something grand. I think this fits the request well. It starts with the easily recognized “Christ the Lord” melody and fits both the trumpet as well as the organ. The trumpet part has enough strength to be played alone if needed. Of course everyone needs a trill that early in the morning.

I  have also included an even easier version of this fanfare in a lower key. The easier version covers one octave from low D to the D in the staff.

Two versions of the same fanfare!
