    I was wondering if anyone knows if The Beatles "All you need is Love" has been arranged for brass band? My friend wants it at her wedding in July .......or does anyone know of someone who might fancy arranging it?

    Hi Livy,
    That's really weird, my brother is having it at his wedding too, must be a 'Love Actually' thing.
    He's having strings who have arranged it especially but I'm sure there will be someone on here who has the know how.
    Good luck

    - this number sounds like one for Alan Fernie to give the correct treatment to (... although I have a sneaky feeling he has drafted one before ... just a hunch!).

    It's already been arranged by Thijs Oud, and published by DeHaske (but their website is down at the moment so I'm not 100% certain if it is still availble). I'm sure Alan would do a great job of it though (if he hasn't already ;))

    I haven't actually done a full arrangement of this particular song, although it does bring my "The Beatles go Brass" selection (pub. by Obrasso) to a close. I can't remember off hand, but it may appear as a separate item on Obrasso's "Black Dyke play the Beatles" album, maybe from Goff's pen?

    Cameron Mabon has done one which I seem to recall Jedforest band trying to march to! (Strong drink may have been taken!)

    We played the canadian brass quintet version at our chairmans wedding. The parts are a bit expensive but the score is reasonably priced.

    Some of them are slightly less good than others - but there are some superb ones... Penny Lane is good... You never give me your money is superb...

    Each to their own... :)

    - I just felt the arrangements were just a sign of that era ... with lots of cheese added!

    Checking through my albums I found an arrangement by Alfred Lauss on the Pro Brass 'At Abbey Road' CD (music clip found under 'Musikarchiv'). This one's been freed up in a big band waltz type style after the intro. :-?

    There was a great arrangement of "Penny Lane" I played at the Foresters about 3 million years ago. It was on manuscript and probably highly illegal, but I remember it was really good. But can't remember who it was by though.

    Sorry, totally irrelevant, but thought I'd share it anyway. :)
