Trumpet player, teacher and arranger David Cooper has selected five of the most popular arias for soprano/mezzo-soprano and arranged them to include festival Trumpet parts. The arias include: Alleluja for Exsultate, Jubilate by W. A. Mozart; Laudamus te from Mass in C minor by Mozart; Let the Bright Seraphin from Samson by Handel; O Thou That Tellest Good Tidings to Zion from messiah by Handel; and Rejoice Greatly from Messiah by Handel. The Alleluia and Let The Bright Seraphim are in two keys in order to make them available for both Sopranos and mezzo-sopranos. This collection includes a CD that contains a full performance track, a track with only piano and Trumpet to allow the singer to practice, and a track with only piano and voice to allow the Trumpet to practice. When an aria is in two keys, both keys are available with piano and Trumpet.
