Easter is around the corner and this was one that was requested by a good friend of ours. Each of the four verses is introduced by a four measure interlude of contrasting material. Verse 1 features the first trumpet and organ. The second verse has the melody in the second trumpet with trombone harmonies. The third verse features the two trombones in a duet and the fourth verse combines all of the players with the first trumpet playing an obligato part. It also has a written introduction as well as a nice closing section.


Listen to the example-
