Entrance of the Queen of Sheeba, from Solomon (Marlatt) [4 trumpets & 2 flugels]
Trumpet 3 and 4 parts are Handel's original oboe parts with some minor adaptations. Trumpet 1 can be played on Bb piccolo trumpet or Eb (The Eb trumpet is apt to blend better with the other voices). To create a lighter feel, another option is for all the trumpet parts to be performed on cornets with trumpet 1 playing soprano cornet. Score & parts.
