    Many older euphonium solos also work well with baritone - Song of the Brother, Ransomed, etc.

    MMI Music has two Baritone solos in our catalogue:-

    Scarborough Fair arranged by me! and Black Eyed Susan by fellow tMPer Mike Lyons. As ever pdf files are available - pm me with your email address.

    Roger Thorne (of tmp notoriety) has written a great baritone concertino (as noted from the link earlier) for Rob Richardson, ex-Black Dyke, but he has also released the slow movement of the concertino (Andante) as a seperate solo with band accompaniment, and it's really really good!. You can listen to it on Scorch from Roger's website and print out a freebie copy of the solo part too, which is very nice. It's highly recommended!

    Peace by John Golland also works very well as a baritone solo.

    Good luck!

    "Donegal Bay" - an excellent solo - very atmospheric. [Recorded on the Fairey VIRTUOSI CD].

    Thanks for the plug Maz! :tup

    Here are the links:

    Concertino for Baritone

    Andante: from Concertino for Baritone

    As Maz has already said, you can print off a free Soloist's Copy for both pieces.

    Southern Cross by Roy Newsome is a good one. Great Baritone part, with a simple accompniment for the band.
    Also, I don't know if Philip Sparke's Rhapsody for Baritone has a Brass Band score. It is on the Baritone/Euphonium Grade 8 Syllabus so yes, is a bit tricky but is great when you get it right!

    Thanks for the ideas guys.
    I did try to have a look at Roger's concertino (of course!!) but can't get Scorch to work at the mo. :-(
