Comments about Kendor Music Wedding Masterworks-Trumpet Solo w. Keyboard Accompaniment (Book and CD):
I purchased this product to use at outdoor weddings where obviously, an organ is not an option. Overall, the arrangements are pretty good. The selection of pieces is very good. The collection really does cover everything a player could want to play at a wedding. However, I do have a few major concerns. In the majority of the selections, the arranger has the instrument, in this case the trumpet, up on the players face the entire piece. If you look at the Purcell/Clarke Trumpet Voluntary, the horn goes up at measure 3 and stays there until the end of the piece. Traditionally, Baroque solos trade off every 8 bars or so between the soloist and the keyboardist. With the exception of 3 works in the collection having 2 bars rest here or there, the entire collection is arranged like this. All this does is over-tax the soloist. Normally, the easy fix to this is the soloist asks the keyboard player to play the solo line for a few bars except the solo line in this score is in the transposed key of the solo instrument and NOT in concert pitch. That is my other major concern. The majority of the keyboardists I work with aren't necessarily adept at transposing a single line of the score on the fly. If the arranger could re-work the selections so there is a bit more rest time or follow period performance protocol, and have the entire keyboard score printed in concert pitch, this would be an excellent collection of wedding standards.
