    Pie Jesu if you give the Flugal part to a cornet!

    On another thread, Paul Drury has mentioned a duet for Eb soprano and cornet by Erik Leidzen called 'The Cleansing Stream'.
    According to him 'It's a good wee number as well'.
    It's published by SP&S.

    Don't be put off by the title. The duet is based on the well-known tune "Listen to the mocking bird" and is arranged with the skills expected of Leidzen.

    You can get Lakeme for Eb/Bb cornet too. It sounds quite nice, and is a longer arrangement than the one for just 2 Bb Cornets.

    Flower Duet is technically easy mate. Nice and slow so you can do a bit of right arm, rubbing valve caps, you know the score. Middle section does go into a lovely key of about five/six flats though, minefield! Not bad for range either.
