Heavenly Descants is a volume of hymn descants based on 118 hymn tunes available in two editions, one for C trumpet and one for B-flat trumpet.

The melodies have been checked with the harmonies in a variety of hymnals from different denominations and each page indicates which hymnal can be used.

In particular, the Methodist, Episcopal, and 3 different Lutheran hymnals.  References to a Baptist hymnal are currently being finished and the new Presbyterian (PCUSA) hymnals will be referenced in the very near future.

  • Amateurs, as well as professionals, will find Heavenly Descants a welcome addition to their trumpet repertoire.

  • The melodies can also be played on other B♭ instruments like the Clarinet, and other C instruments, such as the violin and flute.

  • Bass clef instrumentalists who are able to read treble clef would also enjoy the book.
