    Bewitched (TV/Film Theme)
    By Howard Greenfield/Jack Keller

    In 1964, the pilot to the new American sitcom ‘Bewitched’ was completed. The original screening used Frank Sinatra’s ‘Witchcraft’ as the music for the opening titles, however, the production company did not want to pay the large fee to use this track and so, Greenfield & Keller were asked to compose an alternative. The foot-tapping swing piece they produced was reduced to an instrumental version with a light orchestra for the opening credits. However, the song has now been recorded several times. The most famous recording by Steve Lawrence was also featured in the film ‘Bewitched’ released in 2005. Since then, it has also appeared on the X-Factor a number of times. This fantastic swing item, arranged by Gavin Somerset for brass band with the option of playing it at the Steve Lawrence song tempo, or the fast, big band instrumental tempo used in the TV Series. An optional, lower pitched part is also included between letters E-F for the cornet section & flugel to make the item more accessible to lower section bands. This item is a great swing number that audiences of all ages will recognise, a great piece for your new program & a must for every band looking to inject some life into their concerts.

    Full score & parts: £19.95

    All By Myself
    By Eric Carmen/Rachmaninoff

    This famous power ballad was composed by Eric Carmen in 1975. The verse of the song borrows heavily from the 2nd movement of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.2. At the time of composition, Carmen believed that the Rachmainoff work was copyright free and in the public domain. It was only after the record had been issued that his mistake came to light. Carmen quickly came to an agreement with Rachmaninoff’s estate to legalise the song so as not to infringe copyright. Rachmaninoff is now also creditied as the co-writer of the work, even though he died 32 years before the song was written! This moving piece, covered by greats such as Celine Dion & Frank Sinatra & now arranged for brass band by Gavin Somerset, lends itself perfectly for brass band and would fit into any concert program.

    By Joseph Parry

    With many entertainments contests requesting a hymn tune to be included in the program, finding something new is always high on any bands list. This fantastic new arrangement by Adrian Horn (originally for the VBS Poynton Brass Band) is the perfect addition to any contest or concert program. Composed by Joseph Parry (of Aberystwyth fame), he is also rumored to have written the first ever original composition for brass band. This is a gem of a piece that shows the warmth of the brass band sound.
