Leroy Anderson wrote "A Trumpeter's Lullaby" at the request of Boston Pops Orchestra principal trumpet Roger Voisin. Voisin complained about having to play the same trumpet piece every time an encore was needed. The lullaby is played by the orchestra underneath the melody that is played by the trumpet. Anderson dedicated "A Trumpeter's Lullaby" to Roger Voisin. It is frequently performed in concert on American holidays which have either a patriotic or memorial theme.
