Trumpet in C
Composed by Jeffrey Bishop. Published by Brichtmark Music, Inc. (BM.BRM-11-B).

Item Number: BM.BRM-11-B

When his son was killed in the trenches in WWI, Kipling became preoccupied with the nature of individual fear, of pain, and of the limits of human endurance. His poem "Gethsemane" and his short story "The Gardener," which are both quoted here, are results of that preoccupation. On these the composer has overlaid John XX (Mary's vision of "the gardener"), and Jack Judge's WWI song "Tipperary," made famous by the recordings of John McCormack. The trumpet part accompanies the SSA Chorus - available separately (item BRM-11).
