Prayer of Saint Gregory
This piece is absolutely beautiful with the Church Organ. I have used this setting twice in performance. For the performer, you must have a flowing and unstrained high register to render this properly.

Beautiful, moving piece
Hovhaness's "Prayer of Saint Gregory," a classic of trumpet literature, is a masterpiece. Beautiful and ethereal, it is a piece where you need a B above the staff, good tone, and a lot of control to play the long phrases without breaking them up for breath. I can't recommend this solo enough. It's a real crowd-pleaser.
