    Hi, my friend needs to write programme notes for the cornet/flugel solo, Share my Yoke, but can't find much info on the piece. Does anyone know any info about it?
    Any info is much appreciated, cheers!

    I believe it was originally written as a Salvation Army Songster (choir) piece, and then arranged as a cornet solo
    So might be worth searching for the Songster arrangement, you might find more luck.

    Always good to refer to the words when presenting a piece such as this, I feel. You may already have them, but just in case you don't, they can be found here: http://www.bandsman.co.uk/brass019/msg01084.htm

    An aside on this point: I recently heard a concert performance of 'Shine As The Light' where the words to all the featured songs were printed in the programme. Despite having played and loved the piece for many years, I never found so deeply affecting as I did in that context.
