An arrangement of Charpentier’s Trumpet Prelude from the Te Deum of 1690, set for solo Trumpet and Organ, in a lower key to suit younger players and students, not yet ready for the demands on the embouchure of the semi-professional and professional versions which lie in higher tessituras.

Parts in a variety of transpositions are available on request:keithterrett@gmail.com

The first trumpets were made by vibrating the lips into an amplifier of some type, like a shell or an animal horn. The first metal trumpets are attributed to the Egyptians, after two trumpets were discovered in the tomb of Tutankhamun: one of silver and one of bronze. These types of trumpets were used for signaling, and the sound they produce has been compared to the braying of a donkey. The trumpet’s primary use through most of history has been for signaling, especially in times of war. In the Middle Ages, the trumpet began to appear in courts, providing ceremonial fanfares.

Around 1400, instrument makers discovered the method for tube bending, and the trumpet began to take its familiar curved shape. Around the same time, trumpet players began to experiment with the range of the trumpet. By the 1550s, five part trumpet ensembles requiring each player to perform a different register of the trumpet were appearing.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
