    Yes and no! I have a catalogue with sample recordings on CD. Please let me or De Hakse know if you would like one.

    Some of these pieces have only just been recorded, so we will have samples soon.

    Later this year, we hope to launch a new web-site where you can see scores and listen to bits.

    Philip-

    I was just on 4BarsRest and saw in a news item that Foden's are including an arrangement of yours on an upcoming concert at the Great Northern Brass Arts Festival. The details as listed there are:

    Ave Verum Corpus - Mozart arr Sparke
    Soloists: Glyn Williams, Natsumi Inaba, Helen Tyler, Michael Warriner

    Is this a new or unpublished work, or am I just looking in the wrong places? Any information about this arrangement other than the fact that it features the euphs and baris??

    I ask simply because I feel that Ave Verum Corpus is one of the most profoundly beautiful pieces ever written. I have played it several times in a wonderful arrangement for tuba-euphonium quartet, but never in an arrangement for brass band. (I know that there are a few arrangements out there for BB, but I haven't even had an opportunity to hear any of them.)

    Thanks for any info.

    -Lothian

    As this is a BB forum, can I assume this is a brass band arrangement? As I've played the wind band version and it's a cracker!

    This arrangement is for euph/bari quartet accompanied by band.

    It's not in print but Studio Music have a manuscript copy and will probbably be happy to sell you a copy of this.

    Hello Philip,

    In Kerkrade I had the pleasure of hearing "Between the Two Rivers" about 10 times or so, and I really enjoyed it a lot. That was the original fanfare band version of course, but I see on your website that there also is a brass band and concert band version of the piece. If these are anywhere near as good as the fanfare band version, I can recognize it to everyone here on tMP ;)
