    Going to a Test Piece Comp in November and was thinking of buying Crusade by Rieks Van der Velde .

    Has anyone ever played it your feedback would be much appreciated.

    Just be good to try something a little different .

    Thanks for that could you maybe elaborate a little more please?

    We are a 3rd section band came 5th at the nationals last year and i'm wondering could it prove a bridge too far ie 3rd cornets etc ??

    If you could help with that it may influence my decision :)

    as a bass trom player i can tell you theres bog all in it for trombones and it gets quite boring! :frown: sop should be kept fairly busy mind you.

    As for 3rd cornets it really does depend on how good they are! I'd say that itd certainly be a challenge, but nothing that should be well out of your league. A decent solo cornet row would be handy too!

    But hey why not? you've got until november so theres no reason why you cant have a decent crack at it and do it some justice :)

    Great piece esp for cornets and gives the backrow something to practice!
