    A few years ago at the Mineworkers Championships in Blackpool I saw a book of Herbert L Clarke Solos for cornet and Piano ( debutante , sounds of the hudson , twilight dreams , bride of the waves and a few others ) does anyone know if it is still available in print?

    I Googled and got this:

    Clarke, Herbert L. (1867-1945) The Best of Herbert L. Clarke , Warner Brothers Music
    This collection has 8 of his most familiar solos including Bride of the Waves, Carnival of Venice, Debutante , Sounds from the Hudson, From the Shores of the Mighty Pacific, Showers of Gold

    Hope this might help?:p
    but might be completely useless?:frown: Cos I can't find anyone selling it!!

    I have the Herbert L Clarke Solo Album Book 1 (The Debutante, Maid of the mist, The Southern Cross and The harp that once thro' Tara's Halls.) I remember getting it from June Emerson so it'll be a real shame if they are all out of print.
    They are all old solos and so perhaps there just isnt the demand for them. Might be worth contacting Warner Brothers publishers to find out more.

    The Herbert Clarke Characteristic studies book has a few of the solos in that you mention - including Carnival of Venice etc (including a few studies at the beginning of the book). I bought a copy of it about a year or so ago from Phil Parker's music shop in London.
