The Mystic Trumpeter by William Cutter. For SSA choir, piano (with optional 2 trumpets). Janet Galvan Women's Choral Series. Moderately difficult. Octavo. Duration 5 minutes. Published by Roger Dean Publishing (LO.15-1663R).
With the music reflecting the opening line of the Whitman text "Hark, some wild Trumpeter. . . ," this piece begins with the frenzy and abandon needed to set the stage. Two excellent Trumpeters are needed for this work as well as a fine pianist and choir. This piece is more than an anthem at nearly 5 minutes. The Trumpet parts are included with the octavo.
