Be Thou My Vision Trumpet Duet Sheet Music PDF
Be Thou My Vision
This Trumpet Duet arrangement of the wonderful hymn is designed to be 100% appropriate for traditional church services. Be Thou My Vision is number thirteen in our Trumpet Hymn Duets series. It contrasts the other duets in the series in that it is more pensive than the others. It offers some variety from the pattern that has been evolving as the series progresses.
Be Thou My Vision is based on an ancient poem and sung to the melody of a traditional Irish folk song called "Slane". That's what gives the melody its special lilt.
Sheet Music Details
This trumpet duet arrangement is written for intermediate trumpet players. The highest note in the first part is B flat above the staff. The highest note in the second part is G above the staff. The piece is pretty easy to play, but there are some challenges to playing it well. The biggest of those challenges is the breathing. We have included breath marks to make that a little easier for you. To breathe in the wrong places on this duet will completely destroy the mood of the song.
