    Can anyone suggest a good soprano cornet solo?

    (Not Queen of the Night Aria as I've already done that one.)

    :!: How long have you been around here?!

    Did we ever try 'On with the Motley'? Failing that, I'm sure Frosty would adapt well...

    I wrote a sop solo called 'Dreams are to be Without Motion', priced at £30.00

    It's a cool rocker and those who have heard it love it. If you wish to buy it, pm me.

    Demelza, Hugh Nash (really nice, good for slow melody contests)
    Jenny Jones, W Rimmer
    Rhapsody for Eb soprano Cornet, Robert Eaves

    Could you get away with tenor horn solos? if so try:
    Variations on a welsh theme
    capriccio brilliante

    I've made an arrangement of Ave Maria by Caccini as a soprano solo.
    You may know the music from Charlotte Church's recording...

    You can hear it on the site.

    I can't remember who arranged the solo but "La Boheme"(Dodgy spelling?)is a fantastic sop solo which I think Roy Roe plays on the recording I have. Absolutely fantastic :!:

    "Memories" is another.

    "Lark in the clear air". Alan Wycherly performed this on Band of the year many moons ago and its another great solo.

    La Califfa (sp?) is a good one, from Vitae Lux. You could try looking on recent YBS CD's, as Peter Roberts has done one on a lot of them.
    Flowerdale from Hymn of the Highlands is nice, but the end hangs quite high, as you'd expect from something written for Peter Roberts!

    Try Bilitis (Lai/arr. Kerwin). Its apparently the theme from a french movie (thanks Mr Mute!) but one of our basses reckomns its from a porn film :shock: Very pretty tune.

    Soprano solo

    Thanks, Peter.
    I can also mention Tambourin (Gossec arr. Howard Davies) which is number 577 in our Festival Series.
    (James Galway plays this piece on the flute a lot.)
    Unfortunately, we still have stock of the whole of this particular journal (it was published in September 2002) so you would have to buy the whole set which is currently £62.50!
