    Just watching Billy Connolly's World Tour Of New Zealand - at the end of each episode he sings a beautiful NZ folk song, "Pokarekare Ana"

    Does anyone know of a brass arrangement for this? Specifically cornet or flugel solo?

    Cheers
    Andy

    It's quite a familiar melody, eh?

    There are several arrangements for brass.
    Kirsty Abotts played it in BiC 2004 - It is on the CD. It was arranged by Maunder. Riki McDonnell has played this arrangement on euphonium on Midnight Euphonium

    Goff Richards has made a version for trombone and band. James Stockdale plays it on Brighouse┬┤s Fantasy CD.

    Luc Vertommen has made an arrangemnt for Euphonium and Brass Band played by Steven Mead on Euphonium Virtuoso.

    It is a very lovely song indeed.

    Cheers Erik

    There's actually a version with piano accompaniment too, both of which Luc has published in Euphonium Virtuoso Collection; http://www.worldofbrass.com/acatalog/29815.html
