    I have found this Vocalise edited by Rolf Smedvig well written and quite beautiful. It is in cm for the Bb trumpet, which lays nicely. There will be an issue in the endurance required to play this peice, especially if other pieces are scheduled nearby. There are breathing rests, eights...

    and one quarter rest, but there are no full measure of multi-measure rests giving no time to take the horn off of your face. I recommend playing this piece on an alternate horn, either C or Eb. My choice has be the Eb. For this you will need to transpose the part either in your head or by hand. I can imagine Rolf playing this on a C trumpet although the key is not as friendly.
