    ah yes, the 4th in the series, however this time i will learn from mistakes and i wont say that SA music wins everytime, because there are some absolute gems in both SA and non-SA libraries!


    Pagannini Variations
    Shine as the light
    The call of the righteous
    My strength my tower (great cornet solo in this 1)
    Songs in exile
    The light of the world (im having this at my funeral)

    any thoughts?

    not, sure but it wouldn't be a brass band piece I'm afraid!

    Yes, given the title of the thread not specifying brass bands I would have to agree!

    Given that this is a brass band website, i think thats where your common sense kicks in!

    Ur as bad as rog and his reading skills! :D

    ermm, excuse me, can I just remind you of a posting this afternoon in the 'What instrument do you play' thread.
    I think you better go back and have a little look! :roll:

    This is a brass band website only in the sense we all play in/are associated with them. Sometimes we have other things to talk about though!

    But just incase, i was ansering the comment posted just before mine on that page! :D

    Hmmm..... I wonder if there should be a spell checker available on this forum.

    We had a thread a few months ago about best pieces of music ( I'm sure someone will give a link). Outside of bands and probably icluding band pieces my favourite music is Pavane by Faure and Barber's Adagio

    My favourite must be PRAGUE(although I havn't heard it yet!!!)

    I am thinking of competing by composing another 'note game' called BRNO - should be finished by suppertime. :twisted:

    If you like a piece, you could always arrange it for Brass Band. then select it in this forum!

    Diversions on a Bass Theme for me, although why do all his pieces end on a major scale? I think George Lloyd was trying to reassert tonality, and finish his pieces with "use these notes and not any note row rubbish!"
