    There is an arrangement by Ray Farr of the title music by John Williams from the 1976 film The Battle of Midway on the Foden's CD "Epic Themes". Is this arrangement currently in print?? I can't seem to find it listed anywhere.

    Thanks for any help.

    Peter, that one seems to be arranged by Harper. I don't know how similar (or not) it is to the Farr arrangement I'm familiar with.

    I think I've found the Farr listed at Crabtree Music, so I'll contact them...

    The Ray Farr version is published in Norway by Norsk Noteservice and distributed in the UK by IMP/Warner Bros. You should be able to get a copy from any recognised brass band retailer.
