    You'll find it here (on the tenor horn solo page) at Mostyn Music's site.

    From the 4BarsRest review:

    I'm not sure that this helps to be honest, but as far as I know the only published version is Adrian Drover's Bb solo.

    Well I'm having a brief flirtation with Ms. Carlsberg - hence the delayed reactions!!

    Anyway - good luck with it - I'm currently playing it as a flugel solo and despite my best efforts at our last concert (which I described as "smashing my way through it" :redface:) it really is an incredibly pretty tune, with gorgeous lyrics too.

    Given that Brassneck has given you all the info - and that its by the Scottish poet - I'd make sure you do a good job of it, or else he might be after you...;)

    Ye Banks and Braes

    Ye banks and braes o' bonnie Doon, How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair? How can ye chant, ye little birds, And I sae weary, fu' o' care! Thou'll break my heart, thou warbling bird, That wantons thro' the flowering thorn! Thou minds me o' departed joys, Departed, never to return. Aft hae I rov'd by bonnie Doon
    To see the rose and woodbine twine; And ilka bird sang o' its luve, And fondly sae did I o' mine; Wi' lightsome heart I pu'd a rose, Fu' sweet upon its thorny tree! And my fause luver stole my rose - But, ah! he left the thorn wi' me.

    And you'd better make the most of it - there aren't many banks left in Scotland these days :oops:

    Agreed - I've just 'borrowed' MBJ's CD and it's a lovely tune. :)
    Looking forward to working on that one at Band. :tup
