    My band have a few 10 piece jobs booked for this year but we dont have any music in the library specifically written for 10 Piece ensemble. Does anybody have any suggestions as to pieces that are written for full band that also work as a 10 Piece?

    We did Goff Richards' Doyen at an ensemble comp, and it worked really well.

    Sorry to mention he who must not be named (not Sonorous) but Bernaerts arrangements of almost anything are thinly scored enough to easily get away with a 10 piece - we've used them with a 6 piece set up

  7. We have quite a few pieces that although are written for full band, work equally as well with reduced numbers (between 8-10 players). Here are some of our most popular...

    (Is this the way to) Amarillo
    A Gaelic Blessing
    Albion Treasures
    All By Myself
    Be Still
    Colours of the Wind
    Haven't Met You Yet
    Nearer My God To Thee
    Run (Light up, light up) **NEW**
    Wedding Music
    'Morning' from Peer Gynt

    All are great pieces that give you two piece for the price as one as they can be played as the full band arrangement or with reduced numbers.

    Most of the arrangements at www.pdfbrass.com are also playable by 10 piece ensembles.

    The Vaughan Williams English Folk Song Suite, and Malcolm Arnold's Little Suites Numbers 1 and 2 are all do-able with only five parts, so ten parts should be a doddle!

    The Superbrass parts are available through June Emmerson!
