  1. does any one know how i can get hold of "we've only just begun" Tenor horn trio as its not published anymore.?

    does anyone know of any other good horn trios?

    apart from hatrick (which is sort of difficult)

    It's a quartet, if I remember correctly, for 3 Horns and a Baritone.

    It is published by Hallamshire and still available, according to their website:-


    It's a lovely arrangement !

    By the way, if you have tried to buy it through a dealer, 'out-of-print' often means 'we cannot (be bothered to) trace it' !

    Serenade for Horns is good.

    Try to avoid Hey Jude - Emmenthal!

    Yes, it certainly is!! But Karen Carpenter never sang it, unfortunately!

    Or you could try Sleeper's Wake (Bach) arr. me, which features the flugel and 3 horns and has been recorded by the Ransome Band and is published by Wright and Round.

    Roy Newsome also did a nice trio called Hatrick some years ago and is published by Studio Music (I think).

    There's a good horn trio by Norman Bearcroft entitled "On the sunny side" - lively but not too difficult, as far as I remember. Recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall in 1979 it is also on the Household Troops' Bearcroft cd "Troops Salute".

    Having played this, I can say that it is not too difficult technically although typically for NB's music the top part is screaming on high D's a few times and the solo cornets have several lip trills in accompaniment. I also don't think that it is published anywhere (over to you Mr Woodman!).

    For those of you horny-types out there looking for a horn trio and something a little different my brother, Iain Rayner, arranged a horn trio called "Swings and Roundabouts". A good little crowd pleaser (but don't tell him I said that!!!!).

    Contact me for details.

    P.S. Karen Carpenter did not sing it, although it would have been interesting had she done so!!!!!!!!!
