    I am looking at playing a Soprano Cornet solo now that I am back playing Sop. I am currently considering:
    • Demelza
    • Flowerdale
    • On with the Motley
    What's your favorite Sop solo?

    Cheers

    Neil

    I'd have thought you'd be looking at "Bass in the Ballroom" or "Forty Fathoms"??

    Just in case you take the wrong instrument!

    I like Summertime - erm, you don't always have to go up to a top C at the end:biggrin:

    I'm not a sop player so I've never played it, but I LOVE Gethsemane! Fantastic piece. :)

    I like "Du bist de Ruh" (if I've spelt it right!), Nessun Dorma is available for Sop I think, but if you want simple yet effective try my brother Stuart's arrangement of "La Califfa" by Enrico Morricone.


    and some more suggestions here..

    Although if you want to go for something nice and gentle, then there's always "Solitaire"

    I really enjoyed playing "Silver Threads among the Gold" and "On with the Motley". "The Queen of the nights aria" is a belter too....

    Cheers

    These Mist Covered Mountains - Pete Meechan ;)

    I really like Flowerdale as well....

    You probably mean "You Needed Me" arranged by Derek Broadbent (unless there's another Sop arrangement).
