Hopefully you are aware of “Taps” but many of you may have never heard the version played in its entirety. “Taps” was originally written by Daniel Butterfield in 1801. It was rather lengthy and formal, as you will hear in the clip presented below. In 1862, it was shortened to 24 notes and re-named Taps.
The video @Awakenings features 13-yr-old Melissa Venema playing “Taps” on a trumpet whereas the original was played on a bugle.
