I purchased a set of Canadian Brass arrangements which are American (USA) patriotic for a performance this summer. In general the Canadian Brass arrangements should get five stars. However, the descriptions of the pieces should point out specialty trumpets which are needed and suggested. This one misses the flugelhorn for the second trumpet and the piccolo trumpet for the first trumpet. At square B, the first trumpet is instructed to go to the piccolo. Unfortunately, this instruction carried over to the second trumpet part too; a quick listen to the recording reveals that the instruction to the second trumpet player should be to switch from the flugelhorn to the Bb trumpet instead.
