This is the second in a new series which I have titled “The Best Brass Series”. To learn more of this concept, go to my web site ( and read the reasoning for this project.

This arrangement will work very well under the following combination of brass instruments (Trumpet and Trombone).

Solo trumpet w/ Organ

Trumpet duet /w Organ

Trumpet trio w/ Organ

Trumpet Quartet w/ Organ

This arrangement includes an introduction, four verses with optional interludes between each verse and an ending. Each verse is different with rich harmonies and interesting counterpoint.

This series has been started in order to offer the brass performers music which is both easy and interesting to play and listen to.

If you would like to hear each of these combinations, you can access them at my blog listed above.
