    We have been asked to play these 2 items at a concert next week. I have had no luck ordering them from Just Music as they cannot guarentee the arrival of Heart of Oak as its published in the Outer Hebrides! The When the lights go on again I cant even find!! It is know by anything else do people know??

    Thanks xx

    Sounds like you are doing some sort of 40s themed concert. Heart of Oakes is included in the Henry Wood Fantasia On British Sea Songs as a last resort and When The Lights Go On Again was a 1944 Vera Lynn Song. Might be included in some 40's selection type piece but not sure where.

    Hearts of Oak is also in the Tunes & Toast books (I'm pretty sure)
    If you want a quick 'n' easy arrangement of When the lights... call me on 07786166304

    It is still copyright but it is still generally permissible to make an arrangement for non-commercial use ie. not for sale.

    Ermm ... I think you need to have a look at the tMP Copyright FAQ sheet.

    Yep correct as usual - but I can recall playing this piece in some selection to do with sea songs - Gordon Langford's Fantasy on British Sea Songs maybe?

    Although this seems to include - A-Roving, Drummer and the Cook, Blow the Man Down, We're All Bound to Go, Drunken Sailor, and Sailors' Hornpipe

    Dragon Music has an arrangement of Heart of Oak which you can hear via the website. I could get it in the post today if necessary...
