This beautiful choral work might be considered to be an unusual piece to feature as a trumpet solo but I thought it would make a lovely addition to a short film created by a friend of mine, Dina Besiso. She is new to film making but we did think that adding an arrangement of the Ave Verum would enhance the images she has created. It certainly helps to set the mood and the soprano line lies beautifully for the trumpet. The choir enters halfway through the arrangement and I’ve also added some very subtle electronic sounds to help the atmosphere of the story. It’d not to everyone’s taste I’ll admit but I’m really hoping Mozart wouldn’t be too offended…
