    My band is looking for the hymn Jerusalem, and there are several arrangements available. I'm wondering if there's one which is considered to be the "standard" or most commonly played. If there's no consensus on this, any personal suggestions as to which version might be preferred (and why) would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Try "Tunes & Toasts", this is the standard version that most bands will have.

    There is a good one where the Euphs start on a top A at fortissimo, good arrangement after that first note but cant remember who its by. Its prrety standard stuff with the theme and a few flowery bits but nothing to tricky

    Ours is arranged by Sydney Herbert (not sure if this is the "tunes and toasts" version Alanl58 refers to). Its fine - in fact not a bad arrangement at all. Not difficult and in a reasonable key for people to sing to as well.

    I've just published a new arrangement - so I would recommend that, but can't claim it's any better than the others!
