    Hi tMPers,
    Hope it's OK for non-players to post on this forum.
    I've booked a brass band to play for my (civil ceremony) wedding in June, and found a lovely piece of music which is at present arranged for organ and violin. The brass band we have booked don't have an in-house arranger. They're 18-20 piece and seem to be of a good standard. The composer has provided me with a PDF copy of the music and is happy for it to be arranged for brass band. It's in D? major (2 sharps), don't know whether this is a brass friendly key? Not particularly long - approx 3 mins but that includes a few repetitions and d.c. al coda etc - and not complicated.
    Does anyone know of a brass band arranger who would be able to help with this? (For a fee, obviously!).
    Here's hoping ...
    Thanks all.
    Helen
    :)

    Thank you for the responses.
    MoominDave has stepped into the breach and translated the poetry of Norwejian fijjords into the language of brass. Eb major - lovely key!
    Bye for now.

    No problem, glad to help! Thought the band would be happier in concert Db than D...
