    You'd probably have to get a cornet and sop one and then play the cornet part on a Euph?

    ive tried looking at a couple but the harmonies are written close so it sounds wierd. I was thinkin of maybe 1 that is published for sop/euph, if not some kind composer/arranger could write 1 for all us sop and euph players lol ;)

    There are a couple of SA duets that may be suitable for adaptation:

    "I'll not turn back" is a slower item, written for Bb cornet and euphonium, but I'm not sure how low the cornet part goes.

    "Joy in my soul" is a brighter number (much of it in 5/4 time - or maybe 5/8 :-? ) written for Bb cornet and trombone.

    This duet is usually for euph and solo cornet. Solo cornet goes down to bottom D at points in the solo line as well - too low really for a sop?

    Thanks, Peter.
    Both of these are on the World of Brass website and Joy in my Soul also has a 30 second soundbite featuring David Daws and Andrew Justice.
