    'I Dreamed a Dream' could well be matched with a trombone - I've heard a very nice rendition with male voice - and tromb would make a really nice transposition, the alternative IMHO, would be flugel - I also have an arrangement for solo trumpet that works nicely in the lower parts of the treble clef range - the others tunes, well I haven't formed an opinion.

    All the songs you mention will work on the trumpet. The trumpet is able to create a wide range of timbres. I've found that performing vocal music has made my playing far more musical. Examples: "Sheep May Safely Graze" by Bach, "Ava Maria" by Bach, "One Hand One Heart" by Bernstein.
