- are often used in any sequence as entrance or exit:

Trumpet Voluntary - Sir John Stanley - several but the one in D is popular
Trumpet Tune (and Air) - Henry Purcell

Air from the Water Music Suite (Handel) - Rejoicing from the Royal Fireworks (Handel)

It is interesting to note the percentage of the items
that are orchestral in origin available as piano, organ, or keyboard reductions.
"Trumpet Voluntary" excluded however - one often hears trumpet voluntaries
on wedding music CD's played on the orchestral trumpet, yet historically
the "trumpet voluntary" was a voluntary typically for the 18th century
British organ featuring the trumpet stop.
