  • The recordings are of the above in order, starting from the left. Each recording has the tune played four times, the first being the tune as set by Mr. Olcott for three trumpets. The second is the setting with Descant No. 1 for three trumpets combined with the primary trumpet trio. The third is the primary trio with the second descant (again for three trumpets), and finally, in the fourth, all nine parts are played together. All of this is meant to show the flexibility of the publication. Exhilarating, majestic, and inspiring.
