    There are many types of music that have been composed \ arranged for brass band, all of which have been discussed many times round on tMP - but what, in general, is your favourite type of band music?

    You should include 'Marches' on the list dont you think?

    Presumably these would fall into the category of either original pieces or classical arrangements.
