    Hi Folks
    We have a concert in March with a male voice choir and would like to do some joint items. Has anyone any suggestions of pieces to play? Something with some substance would be good. The choir are a good standard and we are a first section band.
    Thanks in advance

    The P.J.Wilhousky version of Battle Hymn of the Republic. I know it's been arranged for MVC and band, because Northop recorded it in the early 80s with Cor Meibon Brythoniaid. Not sure whether it's published, though.

    "All in the April Evening" by Sir Hugh Roberton. Made famous by the Glasgow Orpheus Choir all those years ago. There is a decent brass band arrangement that would go down a treat with a male voice choir.

    Also, any male voice choir would jump at the chance to sing a hymn accompanied by a brass band, but I'm sure you will have one already lined up.

    We did a joint concert with Gledholt Male Voice choir a couple of years ago. They sang arrangement of there's that fitted with some of our stuff - Love Changes everything & Teddy Bears Picnic.

    You'll Never Walk Alone, the Snell band arrangement adapted by Thom Meredith. Really smashing piece.

    Handel's Zadok The Priest?

    Simon Kerwin has done an arrangement of it and it's true to the original...
