Originally for an ensemble of 8 trumpets, timpani and basso continuo, this new instrumentation makes this trumpet standard available for the brass ensemble. Using the horns, trombones and tubas to fill out the range, the new sound adds more depth than that found in the original. The exciting aspect of this arrangement is that it has been designed for two antiphonal choirs. The 2 lead trumpets in the choirs pass the melody between them leaving the opportunity for the standard Baroque practice of ornamentation.
