As the title suggests, there is a trumpet-like motive which is tossed among instrument sections. The source of this tune from the Shaker history can be performed as a holiday piece or any time of year. It is an easy D major with easy rhythms which offers a great selection for concert or festival.
This piece offers so many opportunities to do cross curricular activities with your students. The arrangement offers very equal playing among sections. Let each section shine during their highlighted part. The original tune is called Mother's Golden Trumpet and appears in a collection of Shaker tunes for Christmas. This arrangement is not specified for holiday only but can be used in either setting, In addition to this great teaching point, it is a strong piece in D major for young string players.
