Along with the Hallelujah Chorus, the bass aria (and mini trumpet concerto) The Trumpet Shall Sound is one of the most recognisable movements from Handel’s Messiah , which was composed in 1741 and received it’s première in Dublin a year later. Written in three parts, the The Trumpet Shall Sound appears in the middle of the third and final part.
The aria is rarely performed ‘live’ with the full repeat, as it is a particuarly taxing part for the trumpet player. However, in this arrangement, the extended middle section is intact and can therefore be played at the trumpet soloists discretion!
