In Stock. Originally a popular organ solo, this voluntary is a great addition to the standard quintet repertoire. There is a short chorale prelude played by the ensemble without the solo trumpet then the soloist enters playing a very tuneful and grand piece. The work can be performed without the prelude or the prelude can be played as a piece by itself. None of the parts are too difficult but all have interesting parts with some written ornaments by the arranger to make it all the more fun. The solo part is playable by a good high school player or by a university/professional on E-flat trumpet. This is a great wedding piece that is sure to delight and will take advantage of the acoustics of a church.
George Frederic Handel wrote his most famous oratorio, Messiah, in a little over three weeks. There is little doubt that this work is one of the most famous and often performed choral pieces in history. Handel conducted many performances in his day and there never seemed to have been a period when the work was not played.
