Going back through some of my old arranging projects, I came across quite a few things that were more or less finished, but not quite cleaned up for publication. I may still publish them someday, but for now I thought it would be fun to share a few, including this duet, “Deep Inside the Sacred Temple” from Act I of George Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers. Originally for tenor and baritone voice, the duet works very well for a variety of different brass instruments, and makes a nice segue from my previous post, which featured another arrangement from the same opera (by Mason Jones).
The music is in the public domain, and you are free to download and use any of the following arrangements as well as the piano accompaniment audio file. If you enjoy playing it, consider donating to a charity or non-profit organization of your choice. If you decide to make a multi-track recording like the one below, please do share it with me as I would love to hear it.

In related technology news, I’ve solved (or at least figured out a workaround) to the audio/video syncing issues I was having with Final Cut Pro X. The solution: use another program! The video below was created using iMovie, another Apple program that has some similar features to Final Cut Pro. Using iMovie, the syncing issues disappeared…must be a settings issue within Final Cut, which I will try to figure out. For the time being, iMovie works just fine.
