A lively duet for tenor and bass trombone with brass band, created by Tim Paton and incorporating Sunday school favourites of This Little Light of Mine, Give Me Oil In My Lamp and … Living Lord.
Comments from the arranger, Tim Paton:
Several years ago, I was asked to provide some musical entertainment for a religious festival. It included this duet, which now has a brass band accompaniment. It is musically satisfying, as well as fun for performers and audience.
It uses some well known ‘Sunday School’ choruses, including “This little light of mine” and “Give me oil in my lamp”.
This is a lively duet, with plenty of typical trombone characteristics – comical obligato, smooth ballad style, and plenty of the famous glissando for which the instrument is renowned.
