Sample Producer: Lavender Audio
Sample Set: The Armley Schulze
Software: Hauptwerk
Genre: Baroque
This neat trumpet tune actually combines two trumpet tunes, played in an A - B - A format.

This performance serves to demonstrate the 2 "trumpets" of the Armley Schulze.

The Great Trompete 8' plays the forte, and the Swell Horn 8' plays the "echos."

It's really a very attractive little thing that shows the reeds to good effect.

I have NO idea what "swan-hopping" is all about! :-)

This arrangement comes from "Ceremonial Music for Organ, Book 2," published by Oxford University Press in 1974.

The book was edited and arranged by Christoper Dearnley (1930 – 2000), who was a well-known recitalist, and served as organist of Salisbury Cathedral and St Paul's Cathedral.
