Taps - Played By 13 Year Old Prodigy
UPDATE: Several have posted that this is not the original taps. A search on google seems to verify that they are correct. See "A History Of Taps" at: http://www.tapsbugler.com---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is an absolutely breathtaking rendition from this young girl. The conductor of the orchestra is Andre Rieu from Holland. The young lady, her trumpet and her rendition of TAPS makes your hair stand on end. Many of you may never have heard taps played in its entirety, for all of the men & women that have died for you to have the freedom. This is an opportunity you won't want to miss and I guarantee you'll never forget. Canada Free Press: Amazingly beautiful .. Melissa Venema, age 13, is the trumpet soloist. Here is Taps played in its entirety. The Original version of Taps was called Last Post, and was written by Daniel Butterfield in 1801. It was rather lengthy and formal, as you will hear in this clip, so in 1862 it was shortened to 24 notes and re-named Taps. Melissa Venema is playing it on a trumpet whereby the original was played on a bugle.
