The Trumpet Overture from The Indian Queen written by Purcell is well known but was originally written for trumpet, Trombone and organ. I have rewritten the trombone part and add a few notes to make it more trumpet like. This would be a great recital number for any serious trumpet player. It has three sections and is a real crowd pleaser.
