Festive Arias for Soprano or Mezzo Soprano and Trumpet by Scott Foss. For soprano (mezzo soprano) voice solo, trumpet and piano. Educational Vocal, Christmas, Eastertide, General, Sacred. Moderately difficult. Vocal score. Published by Roger Dean Publishing (LO.30-1676R).
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.

A must for the advanced singer!
You get the pieces written in two keys for both higher and lower voices as well as an accompaniment CD. I am no pianist but now, if I assign this literature to a student or need to sing it myself, my students and I have the means to practice more...
