"Over the years I have been asked many times for simple hymn arrangements that do not appear in the now somewhat outdated Red Wright & Round Hymn Books for Brass Band". A new feature of this website is therefore the adding of NON - RED BOOK hymns.
If you have a particular need for arrangements of music for any genre, or would like a special solo with band, please contact me. Copyright issues accepted, I can normally turn things out in about 24 - 48 hours.
