"I think the Great Purge may have created the opening.  Having horns in Worship now is 'new' and adds an acoustic sound that many folks have never heard before."

"Yay!  Hallelujah!  Glory! I went through the Great Purge, the decades during which I was forced to kick out superb, dedicated players from our praise band for the sin of having the wrong, or unfashionable, instrument.  I am so glad to…"

"Came across this old thread while searching for something else, and it piqued my interest.  As an old trombone player, I too have been trying to add horns to our Praise Band for YEARS. And we finally added a rock-band type horn section for…"

"Yes, I am in the same situation. I've been looking around for some good arrangements too. It would be great to  find a network of shared arrangements for the glory of the Kingdom. "
