    Judges of the Secret Court was one of the hardest, although Blitz was probably the hardest piece I've played.

    From an Eb Bass players perspective, I found Lowery Sketchbook, Montage and Seascapes
    challenging to get "Reasonably" note perfect.
    I enjoyed them all because of of the challenge they presented and the home practice was very beneficial.

    Kingdom of Dragons by Philip Harper, recently used for the Areas at 2nd Section level.
    There was a bit to keep the basses busy! ;)

    Blitz for me - just could not get my head around 5's. Hardest part ive had a crack at for bass trombone.

    Yep, got to agree. That cornet/euph duet was a nightmare to play exactly in unison.

    On Bass Trombone: "Journey to the Centre of the Earth". I am *SO* glad we pulled out of the Area that year!! No way I could have played that solo in the middle!! :redface:

    On BBb Bass: Probably "Journey into Freedom" or Steadman-Allen's "Beacons" back in the early 1990's when I was still learning to play Bass after 15 years on cornet!

    On Eb Bass: "Granite Variations", which we're working on at the moment.

    St Magnus. Nowhere to hide in it for anyone. Tests everything about every player.

    Whoever said harmony music, that was my second choice. Some absolutely rock-hard writing in that.

    Eden by a country mile for me.
