A light hearted rhythm based piece, this is a great brass feature. The middle of the arrangement moves into a more symphonic/snare drum cadence feel and then ends back with the light rhythmic feel.

This arrangement is in the Key of C with very few accidentals. This would be a great opener for a church that is moving towards a rhythm based worship service. BUT, you don’t have to have a rhythm section to play this piece. Not at all. As long as you have a piano player, they can play the written out piano part.

As true to the entire series, this arrangement features playable, easy to read rhythms for all sections.
