    Ok so bit of a weird request but as part of our remembrance concert next month we'd like to get in a bit about an amazing nurse from the area who won best reservist at the Millie's last year for her work at Camp Bastion. We have all the info we need for the script but would love a piece of music to go after which we can somehow related to it. Doesn't have to be reflective type music. Any ideas?

    The patron saint of nurses is St. Agatha, but off the top of my head I can't recall a hymn tune of that name, unfortunately.

    The closest I can get is A (Florence) Nightingale sang in Berkeley Square. Sorry.

    Goff Richards did a lovely little piece written for a childrens hospice down in cornwall, my previous band bought it and we played it 2 or 3 years ago. The proceeds go to the hospice. I cannot remember the name of the piece though!! Special place ???

    I can't remember what it was called!!! :confused:

    Army Nurse!

    The chances are she is a member of the Queen Alexandra Royal Army Nursing Corps, (QARANC.s). This being the case her corps march might be most appropriate, see this link. From memory I think it is called Grey and Scarlet.

    The librarian at Royal Military School of Music, Kneller Hall, should be able to help with dots.

    Dean Goffins piece "Wonderful Healer" it is, however, really reflective

    Two solos come to mind ... Alan Fernie's sop solo "Tender Loving Care" or "Someone Cares" written by John Larsson and arranged by Ray Steadman-Allen.

    Great idea, but double-check the Corps march. If she was in Bastion as a reservist then she was more likely TA AMS not QARANC.

    Anything with "Angels" in the title should do the trick. I fear the Robbie Williams classic will have been arranged.

    Or how about "Freedom" by Hubert (Bed) Bath?

    You are all brilliant!

    I'll definitely get something out of this lot.

    As for a band of nurses we have 2nd woman down, rep, 2nd cornet and solo horn all nurses plus 2nd horn is a trainee nurse and 2nd tromb is a doctor so we are certainly working on it! (plus all the nurses are all 17-31!)

    Thanks again

    Way back in 1985 Trevor Attwood (A member of the Royal Marines Band Service) wrote a march entitled Q.A.R.N.N.S. for the Queen Alexanders Royal Naval Nursing Service, a certain Keith Stanley James Lever arranged it for Brass band and was published by Cinque Port Music.
