Rating: Easy-Medium. This is truly beautiful music ideal for weddings, church services or a recital to demonstrate lyrical playing. The key has been altered from the original to allow for performance with 5 trumpets. The range is very limited which allows for maximum musicality and beauty of sound to be brought forward.

It is also available for brass quintet.

Rating: Medium. This incredible famous trompet solo is now even better for 5 trumpets! The melody passes between all players and therefore all have breaks. This would be an impressive opener to a concert or would also work as a massed trumpet piece.

Mozart, W./Marlatt-Alleluia from Exultate Jubilate (ENP-TE23110)

!

Rating: Medium. This vocal showpiece for soprano has been adapted for a showpiece within a trumpet ensemble. The string accompaniment has been simplified and divided between the remaining players. This is a great piece to show off a trumpet player and demonstrate the subtlety of the music of Mozart by 5 trumpets.

Satie, E./Marlatt-Gymnopedie #1 (ENP-TE26139)

!
Rating: Medium. The first Gymnopedie, a word coined by Satie himself, is perhaps the composer's most recognizable work. The melodic nature of the melody lends itself well to the sombre mood of the flugel horn. The blend of mutes, harmon in the accompanying chords and cup in the bass line, create an interesting timbre under the soloists sound. Arranged here for solo flugel horn and 4 trumpets.

Scheidt, S./Marlatt-Benedicamus Domino (ENP-TE23111)

!

Rating: Medium. Samuel Scheidt is best known in the brass world for his Canzon Bergamasque and Galliard Battaglia. This work was originally written for 5 voices and organ. It is lyrical and simple in form. All instruments get an opportunity for some duet playing in this lovely melodic piece arranged for 5 trumpets.

Scheidt, S./Marlatt-Galliard Battaglia (ENP-TE2380)

!

Rating: Medium. This is a piece that requires no introduction to trumpet players. This arrangement for 5 trumpets allows trumpet 1 and 2 to play the famous alternating parts with the remaining trumpets playing a supportive role. The flashy scales and great antiphonal writing can now be played at church or on a recital or concert.

Sousa, J.P./Marlatt-The Stars and Stripes Forever (ENP-TE2160)

!

Rating: Medium-Difficult. The Stars and Stripes Forever is one of the most recognizable melodies of the 20th century. This arrangement for 5 trumpets would make a terrific addition to a high school or college concert. The brilliant writing of the "March King" has never been heard like this before!

Telemann, G./Marlatt-Heroic Suite (ENP-TE2157)

!

Rating: Medium. The melody is found throughout the ensemble and all parts are interesting. Each of the movements has its own character or mood and this allows for expressive playing as well as brilliant fanfares. This would also make an excellent contest piece at a festival to show off the musical capabilities of a 5 part trumpet ensemble.

Traditional/Marlatt-Steal Away (ENP-TE2386)

!

Rating: Easy-Medium. This is a simple and beautiful melody that is kept in the traditional chorale-style in this arrangement for 5 trumpets. This is not very difficult and even the lowest voice has some interesting moving lines.
