British Brass Band arrangements with organ and/or choir?

Post by patrickosmith » Wed Mar 28, 2018 9:38 am

I'm looking for British Brass Band arrangements that include organ and/or choir. In particular, the following are on my initial list:
Sibelius, Finlandia
Wagner, Tannhauser (Grand March & Pilgrim's Chorus)
Holst, The Planets

Or any others that you deem worthy alongside this list.

Any ideas on where I might find said arrangements?

Not sure where you will find them. If you don't find them and are in a pinch, contact me. I do a lot of arranging.

I played in a church brass band (British BB instrumentation) for over 30 years. The organ in the church was massive, #42 in the world. We played one or two pieces with the organ per year. None are on your list, and many were done again.

One that comes to mind was In Dulci Jubilo at Christmas time, and fanfares at Easter. I left the band about 5 years ago, but I could likely get you in touch with someone who knows their library.
