Brand new arrangement hot off the press - Trumpet Fiesta arranged by Colin Randle - use either as standard duet or double duet. Review by Alan Morrison will be posted on the MMI Music website (www.mmi-music.co.uk) in the next couple of days.

I remember playing The Two Imps as a xylophone duet - is this the same one?
Oh yes. You can hear Harrogate Band performing it (in it's xylo incarnation) tomorrow afternoon and evening at the Majestic Hotel, Harrogate... PM me for tickets!

The main duet they played was "Wonderful Words" by Wilf Heaton. This was the item that Roger decided to sing in!

The second duet item was a version of Peter Graham's cornet solo "Glorious Ventures".

what about "the titlarks" or "always cheerful" or "something stupid" or "Mack and Mort" or "two Jolly Boys"

Some are a bit dated but still ok

It sure has - however as I put in my post this is a brand new arrangement!

Peter Graham's "Quicksilver" is a good one, as is "Deliverance", although it's been around a long time now. There's also "To set the people free", which I think is Bruce Broughton.

Something Stupid is a nice piece.
I was just gonna suggest that! Played it at an entertainments contest yesterday (not me personally though!) and it seemed to go down well.

Oops! We haven't got Wonderful Words on the website yet. I'd better try and rectify that.
However, we do have Quicksilver which Peter Graham wrote when he was working in New York. The tune featured is 'Hand me down my silver trumpet' and there is a 'Kojak-like' interlude in the middle;

There are plenty of other cornet duets in Salvation Army repertoire but you don't say what standard you and your cousin are. If you can give some more information, I can offer some more suggestions.

I know him so well is a nice one but can't remeber who did it. Softly as I leave you works well with 2 cornets too.

For a bit of light entertainment you could always do 'Ein Schnaps"

Back to Something Stupid, instead of playing why not contact Hepworth for their singing version that Mr Bentham did for two Unlucky comedy victims in the band....Still Scarred! Also goes down well though! :oops: :roll:
 
Great duet quiksilver, its on the British open 1996 cd, James Watson and Philip Smith playing it with dyke accompanying them. Another good SA duet is an oldy called Always Cheerful, I have an old knackered cassette taken from an even older knackered LP of James Williams and Derek Smith playing it!
Also Lover of the Lord and Captain and Lieutenant are great fun too, slightly easier is In shining armouror a duet called Hosanna which is straight forward enough. Mentioning these brings back memories of a mis-spent youth where my father used to drill these into me on a saturday afternoon!!!! :) memories!
I'm sure SPS or www.worldofbrass.com will have many of these available if not now, but in the very near future.
