Ideal hymn accompaniments for festive congregational singing, and for performances by brass alone. Flexible instrumentation, with optional keyboard accompaniment, makes the arrangements adaptable to many situations. There are two versions of each hymn: the standard version found in hymnals in the common key, and a “variation verse,” with a free and interesting arrangement. There is also a trumpet descant book available separately that matches the arrangements. Songs include: All Creatures of Our God and King • All Glory, Laud and Honor • Blessed Assurance • Christ the Lord Is Risen Today • Come, Ye Thankful People, Come • Crown Him with Many Crowns • Fairest Lord Jesus • and many more.
