David Johnson’s Trumpet Tune in F
is taken from a collection of wedding music. With the tempo marking ‘jaunty’, the piece is written in an uncomplicated ternary form, with a middle section in A minor during which the trumpet is silent. Born in Texas, Johnson was for many years Professor of Music at Arizona State University in Tempe and Organist of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Phoenix. His extensive work list includes much organ and choral music.
