Oh lord. Contrabass and piccolo? It really would be a challenge to write something decent with that combo

Oboe and organ? Dang... Not very proficient on organ writing.

That's okay, just call the piece "Organ Failure".

This is kind of funny. I have got Tubular bells and Tenor sax.

The funny thing is that I am fan of Mike Oldfield and he has written an album called "Tubular Bells".

I also used the instrument  several times when I was young. I think the reason I chose it was because of that album. :-)
