    Glorious Trumpets

    Hello to everyone here. I'm new (1st post).

    I realize this is not the introduction forum but I thought I'd be cordial nonetheless . Anyway, I'm here to call on the vast wealth of knowledge collected herein concerning music, movie scores and such.

    My question is, does anyone know of any movie scores or orchestral music with extensive use of trumpets? I'm looking for a song with a sweeping, epic sound ending in a trumpet crescendo. A couple of examples would be: "Remember Us" (found here)> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7X5sfc-epQ by Tyler Bates from the "300" Original Soundtrack. Now I understand the homage/plagiarism debate over this song and Elliot Goldenthal's "Finale" (found here)> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3Z6Qvtn1WM from the "Titus" Original Soundtrack.

    I'm not here to argue that point. If that's a debate you're engaged in, so be it. I happen to think both are beautiful pieces of music. I simply give "Remember Us" as an example of what I'm looking for. A second example would be "Human Step ~ Aramaki's Theme" (found here)> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DkrssiaRd0 by Yoko Kanno from the "Solid State Society" Original Soundtrack. The trumpet climaxes at the (1:50) mark in this song.

    These are a couple of examples of the kind of trumpet crescendos I'm looking for. If anyone knows of any that are similar/comparable to these it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
