    Need some music ideas

    I have been casually asked by a friend to come up with a piece of music for trumpet that is "Triumphant, but also very pretty".

    Don't ask for details, but I'd really like to come through on this one. Something solo or with piano accompaniment would work, preferably nothing higher than A5, but I'll work with whatever you kind folks can come up with.

    And.....go. You're on, TM'ers.

    I take it you mean something already composed.

    A hymn tune very suited to brass would be THAXTED, which is the melody from "Jupiter" in Holst's "The Planets".
    This one's for tpt and organ.

    Do you know the intended use? That might help narrow your choices a bit.

    Edit: this is how I remember the start

    C Trumpet: Inderbinen Alpha 200
    Bb Bass: 1961 Holton #58 "Symphony"

    Concerto for Trumpet and Organ by Bellini (transcribed from the oboe concerto). Requires some decent picc chops.

    A Mighty Fortress Is Our God - both melody and with an alternative descant. Doesn't get much more triumphant than that.
