Most all of this stuff is transcriptions. I like some of the real stuff. Try #9 in the Bach Christmas Oratorio. Now that is TRUMPET music! It starts at 7:30

The trumpet player here is Niklas Eklund.
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
One of my favorites.
In college, we put together a brass ensemble to carol the dorms during finals week. The band director had made a set of arrangements many years before. I felt very touched when he gave me a set on my graduation. He knew how much I loved playing those tunes. (in case anyone on this list went to the Claremont Colleges, this is the set by William F. Russel--"woofer")
I love Greensleeves as played by the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble. I haven't found it on CD and my records are all in the past.
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen is one of my favorite melodies.
It's the best unpaid gig you'll ever play. I play in front of our local Kmart, which is situated in a valley of sorts--so my horns reverberate all through the parking lot. People get out of their cars, hear the live Christmas music, see the beautiful silver cornet and euphonium, and come up to the store with paper money in hand to stuff that kettle.
It will restore your faith in the goodness and generosity of your fellow man. You'll marvel at the power of your horn and good music to bring good cheer and inspire people.

Angels from the REAAAALM OF GLORY! It's simple and dramatic and loud- my favorite three qualities to trumpet music.
