    Hi All,

    I am happy to launch a new publishing venture of mine named "Crabtree Music Publications". This has been formed to run alongside my work as editor for the Warner Bros/IMP Brass Band Series to produce quality arrangements for todays brass bands.

    I am pleased to be able to announce that I shall be acting on behalf of some great named composers and arrangers such as Mark Freeh, Brian Bowen and David Stowell as well as some of my own material.

    The catalogue that is available, or coming soon, is as follows :-

    Ol' Man River
    Kern/ Hammerstein arr. MARK FREEH

    The great Mark Freeh arrangementas featured on the cd by the Rigid Containers Band 'Freeh Way'. This arrangement has been floating around various bands for many years but I'm now pleased to bring it into the legal domain in a fully engraved, published format.

    Sorry. There is a website at www.crabtree-music.co.uk but, at the moment, there is only a holding 'front' page. I expect the website to be up and running fully by the end of the year.
