This is my rendition of David German's Trumpet Processional in G performed on the organ at St. Bartholomäus church in Friesach using the Hauptwerk VPO software. I believe that German's other composition Festive Trumpet Tune (F major) is more popular, but I think this Trumpet Tune is just as catchy! Trumpet Tunes have a pretty predictable structure—that being a solo reed holding the tune, moving in "Trumpet" intervals of 4ths and 5ths and the tune is echoed by the organ. The middle section is contrasting and is often presented in the relative minor key. We then return to the original key before concluding on full organ. This compositional structure is known as ternary form (ABA).
I hope you enjoy my rendition of this work by David German, which will be my last upload on Steem for the decade! Expect more in the New Year :)
