Through the years of playing weddings and carrying a briefcase full of music, I became weary of sifting through my repertoire, just to find a piece that I, in some cases, would have to revise to conform to the organist’s version. My solution was to compile a book of some of the most popular music performed for weddings arranged for one or two trumpets and organ.
The Trumpet Wedding Book is divided into sections for your convenience. The first section, for C trumpet, is for those who are used to reading off an organ score. The second section is transposed for A piccolo trumpet (written pitches which sound higher). The third section has lyrical prelude of special music written in C. The bonus section of 2nd trumpet parts in C and A piccolo, is included in the separate insert.
The Trumpet Wedding Book contains a number of standards which are popular for weddings. This collection is not meant to be limiting. Wedding music is selected with individual and personal tastes in mind. Additionally, the prelude provides a nice opportunity for performing a wide variety of solo material. The possibilities are endless. The Trumpet Wedding Book has been a very useful source for me and hopefully others will find this a good and helpful addition to their library.
