Soliloquy for Trumpet No. 2

Coming on the heels of my first soliloquy for trumpet, my "Soliloquy for Trumpet No. 2", the idea for which preceded its composition, is an attempt to depict the last trumpet the Bible tells us will sound at the second coming of Christ as described in verses such as the following: "... for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall all be changed." 1 Corinthians 15:52 (see also 1 Thessalonians 4:16). I don't know how far this piece has succeeded to approximate that trumpet's true sound, music, and of course, its powerful impact. Only God knows - and our imaginations can imagine and judge!

I hope you know those low F#'s aren't going to sound nearly as clear as it does on this recording. That's really pushing the player.
I'm not really sure I understand this one as much. It meanders a lot when I wished it stayed on a course throughout, even if there were changes. I think this may just be due to the slow tempo though. I just didn't really feel the effect you were going for this time.
Cheers----
