    Well done! I've always thought it might move across to band quite well, considering the orchestration. Maintains the banding tradition with it's style and character.

    I would love to arrange the Witches of Eastwick by John Williams. Great music.

    There are arrangements and there are good arrangements. I know it is all a bit subjective but the mass produced 'pop' songs in particular don't do the brass band image an awful lot of good.

    I think if they're properly arranged, the do us the world of good, because people know the tunes so will often stop and listen in stead of walking straight past the bandstand.

    The problem is that so many are pretty poorly arranged, and as such, utterly unrewarding for player or audience.

    Has "Shine" been done? (take that)

    I also often wonder weather "jump" would work (van Halen) but sometimes a good pop/rock tune is strong because of the lyrics or hook and not necessary the over all melody.


    BTW guilty pleasure time!!!!
    I love this little known Xmas cheese, especially the unnecessary modulation and Hollywood ending. I wonder if it could be great yuletide fodder:

    How long did it take you to get permission to use the Rutter pieces ? It took me 10 months to get clearance from OUP !!!

    I've just arranged part of Rutter's 'Suite Antique' for flugel solo and band. Took less than 2 weeks to sort out copyright permission for use with our band. Found the lady at OUP very helpful and efficient.
