Suite for Trumpet and Piano

by Tim Gray.  


Moderate to Difficult


This suite has been a dream of mine for about 22 years.  I first started writing some of the melodies while I was preparing for my Senior recital.  Since then I have written a little here and there but didn't really have the time to devote to much composition--working a full-time job as a therapist/counselor and part-time church music ministry jobs kept me a little busy.  But now it is finished.  My prayer is that God is honored in this and the rest of my life.


This Suite is somewhat autobiographical in that to me it represents portions of my relationship with God.  This Suite has 4 movements and each movement expresses some of my desire to honor God in my life and music.
