    Does anyone have ideas about duets written for mixed instruments. e.g tenor horn and euphonium? There doesn't really seem to be much available.
    I welcome any suggestions.

    "Don't it make my brown eyes blue"
    Flug and Tenor Horn. Could work for lower Bb/Eb combo

    Good one !... I played that in my early teens at a contest... tenor horn and baritone.
  10. This is a great hit with audiences...

    Well, Did You Evah! (Duet)
    By Cole Porter
    This fantastic, high-energy, showcase of a piece was originally composed by Cole Porter for the musical ‘Du Barry Was A Lady’. However, it was not until it was performed by Bing Crosby & Frank Sinatra in the film ‘High Society’ that the piece shot to fame in 1956 and then again in 2001 when Robbie Williams performed the duet with Jon Lovitz on his album ‘Swing When Your Winning’. Your band can now faithfully recreate Crosby & Sinatra’s clever, comic on screen interaction in this arrangement by Gavin Somerset that is scored as a duet for any two Bb instruments to take the spotlight, or an Eb & Bb instrument. An entertaining piece for the entire band and one your audiences will love!
    Full score & parts: £20.95

    I think Meiso (contemplation) by John Golland would be ideal.

    Is it 'Pie Jesu'? for soprano cornet and flugel?
    And 'The Prayer' for Eb Bass and Euphonium :)
