Amazing Grace – Trumpet Duet
Amazing Grace Trumpet Duet

Amazing Grace

For Trumpet Duet

This duet is our number one seller and we think it’s for a reason. Not only is Amazing Grace a very popular hymn, finding popularity even outside of the church, but this arrangement actually speaks to people.

The arrangement looks simple. Indeed, it is pretty easy for anyone with a range up to high C. But the simplicity does not detract from its effectiveness. We feel that this is the reason why it sells so well.

All of the harmonies should match the traditional harmonies of the original hymn.   Please note that the high stuff at the end is optional.

Jingle Bells – EASY Trumpet Duet
Jingle Bells EASY Duet

Jingle Bells

Pierpont

For Easy Trumpet Duet

I wrote this beginning duet for one of my youngest students. He was a first grade student when we did this in his lesson. This is something I like to do for my beginner students. I take the songs they would like to play and simplify them to their personal level and catered to their own limitations. The highest note in the first part is third line D and the shortest rhythmic value is eighth-notes.

O Sacred Head Now Wounded – Trumpet Duet
O Sacred Head Now Wounded

O Sacred Head Now Wounded

For Trumpet Duet

By:

Bernard of Clairvaux
James W. Alexander
Hans L. Hassler
Johann S. Bach

Arr. Eddie Lewis

This trumpet duet hymn arrangement utilizes dissonances to create a somber mood. It is a Good Friday hymn, meaning that the theme of the hymn is Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. Good Friday church services capture the somber mood as a recognition of Jesus’ sacrifice. He gave his life, taking our sins so that we may live. This arrangement was written on Good Friday in 2019. The idea was to stay as close to the original mood and harmonies as possible. Where possible, this duet arrangement preserves as many of Bach’s passing tones and suspensions as is appropriate for just two parts.

Walking the Narrow Path – Trumpet Duet
Walking Narrow Path

Walking the Narrow Path

by Eddie Lewis

For Trumpet Duet

Not all duets are corny. Some duets can actually be quite artistic and creative. Walking the Narrow Path does not play out like a typical duet. It was conceived as a light performance piece. The rhythms are dreamy and the melodies are almost hypnotic. The piece is in odd meter, which is fun for the musicians and interesting for the audiences. The top note in the first part is a B flat above the staff, which is not high, but the part stays high long enough to be an endurance challenge. The skill level is intermediate/advanced. If you are familiar with Eddie Lewis’ seven levels of difficulty, this composition is at the Trumpet Pro level in his system. This is mostly because of the range and the odd meter time signatures.
