Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Scored for Trumpet, Organ

This elegantly crafted suite of five movements begins with the musical leitmotiv, "Taps" (Day Is Done). This evocative tune is first paired with the evening hymns Ar Hyd y Nos, Merrial, Tallis' Canon and Eventide (betraying its original use).

It is then woven through tone poems, which reveal the official hymns of all branches of the Armed Forces, and such patriotic favorites as Materna, America, The Star-Spangled Banner/National Anthem, and Battle Hymn of the Republic.

The heroic final movement is composed of the Easter tunes Easter Hymn/Worgan/Lyra Davidica, Duke Street, and Victory/Palestrina, and then concludes with a haunting re-statement of the leitmotiv. Parts for opt. Trumpet included.
