Thoughtful and instrospective writing that pairs trumpet and choir is the hallmark of this piece. Pieces of the traditional tune HERZLICH TUT MICH VERLANGEN occur throughout, but never really appear until the end to create a chilling effect. The piece may be used as an expanded introduction to the traditional hymn. A reproducible part for B-flat Trumpet is included.Tune name:
HERZLICH TUT MICH VERLANGEN (PASSION CHORALE).
