    Do any of you know a good arrangement of "Christ the Lord is Risen Today" for three trumpets? It needs to be fairly simple and mostly in the staff. I need it ASAP, so we can rehearse for Palm Sunday.

    Thanks!

    Anyone with Finale or other note entry software should be able to knock it out from the SATB of a hymnal. At hand, I've a 1927 edition of The Presbyterian Hymnal that has Christ The Lord Is Risen Today by Charles Wesley in 1739 and Lyra Davidica, 1708 on page 118. My own rendition is multi-brass.

    Christ The Lord Is Risen Today on Palm Sunday?

    Isn't that more appropriate for Easter Sunday?

    Usually, yes, but this service is at a children's home that will not have its own service on Easter.

    Can you just play the SATB with a few voicing changes or solos?

    Been doing that for a long time with most hymns and other piano music also, transposing for Bb & F instruments from the C pitched music. Have even pushed the bass up an octave and set it in treble and played all 4 parts ... only a few times have I found it doesn't sound right. I sight read C music for my Bb instruments.

    I tell you to go to Paul Davis in Festive Hymn Settings, but you need some bass clef to make it happen.

    Brian,

    If you are talking Christ, the Lord, is Risen Today based on the tune Llanfair, you might try an arrangement be Austin Lovelace called "Easter Concertato on Llanfair, published by Augsburg Publishing House.
