Looking for some help please. I tried on the business women forum but they're hopeless.....obviously not very musical over there :o0 I've been asked to record a CD of 20 duets with a tenor for an organisation that run pre marriage courses in Dublin. I'm trying to compile as big a list as possible of suitable male/female duets for the ceremony and champagne reception so it will be a mix of classical/church and modern pieces. Any suggestions from you Wollies would be greatly appreciated :thnk Siobhán *)

[quote="AutumnWed":15arfacy] Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead (Duet with Harold Arlen) [/quote:15arfacy] :o0 can just see my voice coach singing that one with me :o0 thanks a million AutumnWed - some great ones in there. I did a google search of duets but didn't come up with many I liked! I've got a few of the "show" duets e.g. Come What May, All I Ask of You, Love Changes Everything etc but I love jazz/swing pices so thanks for those. Any more out them at me! Siobhán :thnk

I love Ella so Dream a Little Dream's perfect! Thanks Icebaby. I sing I Only Have Eyes for You with a jazz group but don't know how that would sound as a duet - Can't Take That Away From Me is another one I do - that might work as a duet alright. Hadn't even thought of Moon River Kittysue - that'd be lovely as well. I'll probably find it hard to narrow down the list to just 20 at this stage!! Keep them coming :thnk Siobhán
