Description:This is the original Helen O'Connell version of Not Mine, from her 1957 album "Green Eyes", as recorded with the Marion Evans Orchestra. The arrangement was originally scored for 5 reeds (123 on Flute/Clarinet, 45 on Bass Clarinet), no brass, full string section and 4 rhythm, and this is what we include in the arrangement. We have also included a full set of 8 brass parts which should only be used if you have no string section. The reed 4 (1st Bass Clarinet) can be played by Tenor sax and we have included an alternate reed 5 part, scored for Baritone sax. However, reeds 12&3 remain as Flute doubling Clarinet, as the tonal colour is vital to the integrity of the arrangement. The vocal key is G throughout.
