The Old Rugged Cross On A Hill Far Away
by George Bennard
arr. Zack Smith
A well known spiritual done in New Orleans funeral style.
Starts slow with trumpet lead, then goes into swing with trombone carrying the melody.
Shouldn't be too taxing on the chops.
Includes French horn substitute part for alto sax.
Listen to a live performance by the Blowing Winds Trio -- starting toward the end of the slow section.
