The other majestic fanfare arrangement in this set. Works great as an opening of a service. The opening fanfare returns at the end after a wonderfully unique meddle section. The fanfare returns at the end but in a lower key, as to keep the intensity but not tax the players. Grade 2

Jeff Voegtlin –
This is a very enjoyable arrangement to play. It starts off with a “bang,” especially for the trumpets who end the opening fanfare on quite a high note. The trumpets in our group just asked, “Why?” But to me, it sounds great. The introduction to the middle section is a little redundant and doesn’t seem to connect to anything else, but it is easily edited if you don’t want to play it. We cut six measures out, and we’re the only ones that know…except now you do too ;). After that, the F Horn needs confidence and the rest of the group should back off as the range is medium for the horn and doesn’t project naturally. The final fanfare ends a little abruptly, but that’s not a bad thing. Very enjoyable for players and those listening also.
