Just wondered if anyone can recommend a Scottish piece of music for brass band, the only ones I've come up with are Amazing Grace, Jamies Patrol and ahem Cock up Yer Beaver.
You're not deluded! Just lacking in conviction! Unless I've not realised and "Scotland the Brave" is in fact a cornish folk tune???? And "Will ye no come back again" is a cockney knees up tune from the music hall era! :tongue:You cant beat Skirl! its AMAZING!
- I really hope this is Scottish or else i have been deluded for many years!
Well we def wont be playing it......!!!!!!!As DMBabe says, ye canny beat "Skirl" - used as an "encore" it has regularly been known to get a better reception / longer applause than the stuff in the main programme, and it goes down particularly well when abroad....so listen out for it at Harrogate....!!
Other pieces that come to mind -
Mull of Kintyre (cheesiest of cheese!)
My Love is like a Red Red Rose
Flower of Scotland
Lomond Hills Overture (Bruce Fraser - youth/school band "standard" up here!)
Come to think of it , does the original question refer to "Scottish" pieces , ie recognisable Scottish tunes, or music by Scottish composers? If so, step forward messrs Graham, Fernie, Drury and the rest...
Colin,A Royal Mile Suite? Unless they've shifted Edinburgh whilst I wasn't looking
