If there is could someone please tell me where I can get it from?
Thanks in advance.
... there is, if you buy the original soprano vocal part as well:-
Is that one in the same key as the brass band version?
Shepherd's Song (and three other pieces)
Arranged by Eric Wilson
Published by Rosehill Music
This has an arrangement of Rusalka's Song to the Moon for cornet and piano in concert F major (that's G major (one sharp ) for you Bb instruments).
You should be able to order it quite easily from your normal sheet music supplier, if not, check out June Emerson Wind Music - http://www.juneemerson.co.uk/ - a fantastic shop that usually have everything you need in stock.
... no idea what the original concert pitch is, I'm afraid! You will have to transpose the vocal line up a maj. 2nd if you play a Bb instrument though.
If you type in "shepherd's song" it is the first piece in the list.
done that, sorry, got it now, thanks for your help!
I just performed the solo with my band this month. I have the solo with piano, and it's in the same key as the band arrangement by Langford. The solo with piano is arranged by Eric Wilson and comes in a collection of solos called Shepherd's Song. I got it from Just Music, but I don't see it in their online catalog now. Both the Langford and the Wilson differ somewhat from the libretto, more so the Wilson.
Do take a look at the libretto and listen to a singer like Rene Fleming. Best wishes!
