This famous duet between the characters Lakmé and Mallika is often called the Flower Duet. The interest in this particular section of this opera is probably due to the piece being used in several movie soundtracks. The original meter was 6/8. This has been altered to 3/4 for ease of reading.

    Something wrong with this arrangement. The trumpet parts are nice, but the low brass accompaniment is strange. Might be that it's too true to the original score, not sure. But it doesn't work for brass. I'm going to by a different arrangement.
