Two famous trumpet fanfares are reproduced here - Gottfried Reiche's high and florid "Abblasen", which was written as tower music for the Leipzig town musicians, and the equally well-known "Hejnal Krakowska", to which there is a story attached. The town trumpeter of a Polish city, under attack from its enemies, sounded this fanfare of panic and alarm to awaken the populace and call them to arms. Unfortunately, an archer skewered the trumpeter through the throat before he could finish, hence the fanfare finishes rather abruptly!

These two fanfares are followed by four others which I found in my attic recently. Finally, there are three of my own. You are welcome to print these pieces for free, although I would be delighted to receive an email from you.
