    Does anyone know if the carol 'Shepherd's Pipe Carol' by John Rutter has been arranged for Brass Band, either as choral accompaniment or for band only?

    Now why didn't I get that result when I searched Just Music first? I bet I spelt it Shephards.....

    Thanks very much Roger. If it's been done by Peter Graham, I imagine it won't need doing again!

    However, does anyone know if thats a choral accompaniment or for band only?

    The Peter Graham arrangement is a direct transcription of the Rutter original and is in the same concert pitch key as the version published in Carols for Choirs (so far as I am aware, it is the only version!). If you have a choir to accompany it ought to work without any issue!

    Unusually for these arrangements from Carols for Choirs it is in a pleasant key for the brass players...

    We've done it with choir a few times. No problem at all.
