    Hi I was wondering if anyone could help me-

    Does anybody know any good websites with info on Gilbert Vinters Bio on, and any lists of complete works/other info about his compositions, mainly brass band stuff. Anything would be greatly appreciated- (especially stuff on the uproar when he wrote Spectrum and the fuss over John O' Gaunt!)

    I am in the process of going through the uni library- but it isnt fantasic.

    I am doing an Essay for Brass band history- i know several others at my uni use this forum- and would also benefit from this too!

    Thank you

    Err thanks Naruco - but actually I have been to nearly all of my lectures!!

    its not cheating- simply using my loaf to ask people who might know!! :tongue:

    I am only asking- as some of the 'older' uses of this site might recall contests -

    I think Black Dyke won the contest the year John O'Gaunt was played- but he wouldn't let the contest organisers use the piece unless they allowed percussion to be used.

    - i was just hoping someone might know something the text books dont- like an insiders view, or Perhaps they know someone who was there.....?

    I can only ask - I am not after the answer to an essay title!! ;)
