A stupendous collection of 17th- and 18th-century pieces for trumpet and pipe organ—includes some of the most famous works by Händel, Purcell, Mozart and others—magnificent is the word! Provides a rare opportunity to have a huge pipe organ accompaniment at your beck and call, and includes B-flat parts for all compositions, plus special transposed versions of select pieces for C trumpet. This highly praised album includes extensive performance suggestions that provide a veritable treasure trove to trumpeters everywhere!
Includes a printed music book on high-quality ivory paper with parts for B-flat and C trumpets; and a digital stereo compact disc containing a complete version with soloist; then a second performance of all fifteen organ accompaniments (and nine bonus versions transposed for easier execution), minus you, the soloist.
