    :oops: is that how it's spelt??

    Am looking for some music for small brass group (6 to 8 ) to play for my local beer festival in May.
    Any ideas?
    I cant find much in the way of pdfs etc.
    Any help gratefully appreciated :)

    These are brilliant http://www.jwpepper.com/919845.item although written for 2 clarinets will work with (hard working) cornets..
    I would loan you my set but I'm still waiting for another TMPer to return them.......
    JW Pepper offer a great music service from USA to UK

    ... who can consistently reach high E's and F#'s on three leger lines (at least in the version I have) ... ?? I don't think so!

    There might be some suitable pieces here , all playable with four or more instruments. Not exactly OomPah though.

    Of course some octave transpositions are needed but it can be done - I've done it plenty of times....
    It just needs a bit of thought.
