    Hmmm - Since the trumpet doesn't know the words to the hymn, why stop at 7 verses? Maybe 20 is better.

    Good call. I do most of my practicing in the sanctuary of my Lutheran church and often times grab a hymnal. Of course not cover to cover, but enough get a nice endurance workout near the end of my practice routine.

    If we play just the notes, we gain endurance. If we play the words we gain musicianship as well.
