Ensemble Music

Does anyone know if there is an ensemble arrangement of Music From the Royal Fireworks (pref. for 10 piece with a sop :D ).

Also any other recommendations for ensemble music?

btw : Perhaps there ought to be a "Music Search" section for people trying to find music?

Only ensemble version that springs to mind (other than a couple of quintet arrangements) is Elgar Howarth's version for the PJBE, published by Chester Music, but written for larger ensemble (5 tpts/cnts incl. picc., 4 horns, 4 trbs, tuba, timps/perc.). May well be hire only too. Maybe justmusic can be of more use as Roger says.

Any other recommendations: What sort of music are you looking for? If you're staying with the baroque era, Bach's Brandenburg Concerto no. 3 (arr. Christopher Mowat, publ. Chester Music), and Brandenburg Concerto no. 6 (arr. Howard Snell; publ. Rakeway Music) spring to mind immediately. Neither of them are easy but worth the rehearsal. Is it a brass band 10 piece you're referring to or orchestral brass? (I guess brass band if you mention sop?), because some orchestral brass 10 piece stuff has alternate parts for Eb horn, Eb bass etc. but some don't. If you could narrow your criteria down a wee bit, I'll try to be a part 'Music search' facility! ;-)

Cheers
