This suite for four trumpets was completed in 2001, and is in an approachable and attractive style in a largely tonal idiom. The composer characterises each movement as follows:
1st movement: Lirical & a bit sad.
2nd movement: Happy, funny & laughable (with ‘lots of jokes’ in it..)
3rd movement: Dramatical & Tragic, ‘The victims of terror’
Finale: Marching song, a fanfare for Peace, Freedom, Liberty & Prosperity
