    TAPS (hauntingly beautiful)

    YouTube - "Taps" Full Version (Il Silenzio)


    The conductor of the orchestra is Andre Rieu from Austria.

    The young lady, her trumpet and her rendition of TAPS makes your hair stand on end.

    Pretty amazing. Definitely the smoothest trumpet work I have ever heard. Very reminiscent of a sax.
    Amazing!

    While she is very good, nothing can move a military man or woman like the traditional rendition of Taps, especially if player on a bugle. Taps with a 21 gun salute can cause the most hardened of soldiers to flinch and shed tears.

    That's some embouchure, and one heck of a crescendo!

    I agree. The arrangement is a little weak. Someone obviously thought they could improve Taps by adding a bunch of junk to it...

    This young lady is fabulous!

    I appreciated it for what it was. It was beautiful in and of itself.
    Incredibly talented young female musician.

    I am not military, but many in my family have been, both sets of Grand Parents as well as one set of step grand parents are buried in Arlington Cemetery, I have heard Taps just as you describe and it moves me to tears everytime.

    good trumpet player.....but this is not taps, its actually a composition of an Italian trumpet player, written in the 60's, was a chart topper in Europe for awhile
    it just happens to have some note progression similar to taps


    I too have been moved to tears hearing taps, most notably while standing in front of my dad's flag-draped coffin
