Each year I rearrange the Lord's Prayer. I have no idea why other than I want to. This year I tried to work in suspensions which creates more tension and resolutions to the music. Each year I think that this was better than last year but in reality, it gives the listener a chance to hear a different view of this wonderful melody. Most of the melody is in the second trumpet part which leaves the first part player free to suspend his/her notes above the melody similar to barber shop quartet style. A jump modulation towards the end sets up a very uplifting close to the piece. I have included to optional high notes (B or G) for the first player just in case they feel strong or would like to take a safer note to end on. We have not performed this yet and I will be very interested in your opinion of this years Lords Prayer.
