    Is "I'll walk with God" a solo or band arrangement?
    Is it available to purchase from anywhere?

    If it's the one I've got it's arranged by Goff Richards and it is fantastic. It is a full band arrangement - no particular solo for anybody.

    Published by (I think - correct if I'm wrong) Studio Music.

    Highly recommended.

    Yup, I'll Walk with God is a Band arrangement by Goff Richards...
    Lovely piece... and yes, Studio Music I think.... I'll double check in rehearsal later though

    I have an exam 9.00 the next day too :(
    I reckon u'll need a break the night before though - to chill you out for your exam! :wink:

    If you're 20 or under then you can get the tickets half price - so that's only £3.50 for the cheapest ones :)

    Yeah, it was really fantastic! :D :D :D I really enjoyed it! The only thing that slightly disappointed me was that I had to go straight back home to do last minute revision ( :cry: ) and I really didn't want to because I was on one of those concert highs!
    Hope you enjoyed your visit to the wonderful city of Bath! Please visit again! :wink:

    I really enjoyed the concert, it was a really nice sound in the assembly rooms. I was sat right at the back next to an american couple who just kept saying "gee darlin its thrillin stuff" (not to me)

    Obviously, i could only just make out your face Niomi....
    and i did see you lisa, someone said look its lisa who used to play for us...(bendix).

    Anyway, ive gotta play in bath soon on the 27th of june in Parade gardens (behind abby) I think ive gotta do shepard song solo...however unlike Leyland we have no purcussion as yet, in fact we've had no perminent percusion in our band for several years. (have to borrow).
    Ive never played in a bandstand before so its a first for me...

    Well I must say that it was a really enjoyable concert... Great sound in the Hall... and even a standing avation at the end as well!

    Nice to meet Lisa and friends... Glad you enjoyed the concert.

    After the concert I saw your post that you were going after all and then it occured to me that you were probably the 3rd person with Neil? But I can't remember at all what you looked like (if it was you)!! I can just remember that Neil was stood with two other people! :?
    Oh and is your name Alex Moon by any chance? :?:

    Oooh, bet ur excited! :wink: Good luck with the solo...

    Oh, and it was nice meeting the best percussionist ever! :D :wink:

    Yeah, my exam was surprisingly easy :D - although I probably shouldn't say that until I know whether I have passed! :?
