    We've never played it out before, we have no sop so I have to transpose the sop solo in the middle :(

    Oh yes we can, every single time, and I still can't play the bit in the middle at the ridiculous tempo he takes it at so he can get to the pub quicker!

    Haha... its cos she's little!! she gets tired easily.... honest!!!

    having said that, i wouldn't fancy playing a solo like hers too late in the programme!

    Yep, and cornets get it too. I played it on horn once sightreading in a concert too, and I found it easier than the cornet one.

    Three sops? Is this your usual line up?

    I've often thought that two might be a good idea to extend the higher range of the band, but How does the Cav. Rust. Intermezzo work as a trio?

  12. PeterBale

    PeterBale Moderator Staff Member

    No, it's not our usual line-up, just a novelty item capitalising on the Three Tenors/ Three Sopranos idea. Dean has been our usual soprano player for some time; Dave recently moved into the area, and has played soprano for many years. He currently plays 2nd cornet most of the time with us, but covers for Dean if he's not there. (He also plays sop with the North East Division Senior Band and the South London Fellowship Band, as well as helping out the Central London Fellowship Band - he likes to be kept busy!) Keith is our Principal Cornet, who also has his own sop.

    They play the Intermezzo mostly in unison - a good test of intonation - just dividing for the chord at the end.
