Day is Done (Taps). Music attributed to Daniel Adams Butterfield, lyrics author unknown, arranged by Jari Villanueva for SATB choir with optional bugle. Piano part for rehearsal is included.

The bugle call “Taps” has been part of our American heritage for over 150 years. It has been recognized by Congress as our National Song of Remembrance and is best known as the last call in evening at US military bases as well as the final musical farewell at military funerals.  This moving arrangement is suitable for special occasions as well as Memorial Day and Veterans Day concerts and ceremonies. It will also round out any patriotic program.

Jari Villanueva has been writing arrangements for decades. A student of Bill Holcombe, he continues writing for different ensembles. Jari also sounded the call of "Taps" at Arlington National Cemetery for 23 years as a member of the United States Air Force Band. Many of his arrangements can be found on Sheet Music Plus.
