for Five Trumpets (trumpet quintet)
by Eddie Lewis
Healing Prayer started off as a cannon, but it ended up being altered into something very different. The cannon is still there, but cut up into sections. The piece also has what seems like a short “second movement”. We like to see this reprise as answered prayer! It is a complete composition in and of itself, but it belongs to the longer first part. The two go together so perfectly that the two parts are not labeled as separate movements. The top note in the first part is A above the staff. The piece is written in 6/8 time with some sixteenths. So we consider this to be of intermediate difficulty level.
