    Hi Everyone,
    Just a quick question:) I have recently brought the 'Softly, As I Leave You' Euphonium Duet arranged by Alan Catherall, and I was just wondering if there is an version of this arrangement to play with a Wind Band? I know there is a brass band version but my wind band also seems keen to perform it.

    Thanks in Advance:D

    I've not tracked down a concert band version, but it has been recorded by the Royal Engineers Band:

    They may have played it from the brass band score, or else had permission for a one-off arrangement, but it may be worth contacting them.

    Failing that, you could try Alan Catherall himself, care of the Reg Vardy Band.

    I have also heard an american millitary band play this too. So there must be? It did sound identical to the Brass band arrangement, with different voices however

    What I found was this ... the Alan Catheral arrangement was adapted for wind band by Alan Camerali (unless the spelling is wrong on the site).
