    The band I conduct have been approached to play at a Coldstream Guards veterans' function. As part of this I wanted to play the relevant regimental march, which I believe to be 'Milanollo'. Does anybody know where I can get hold of a copy, as a search of the usual suspects hasn't turned anything up?

    If you are playing for a Coldstream Guards Old Comrades function, surely the coldstream guards band can provide you withit. You might also be lucky enough to obtain a brass band version from them.

    Contact details via their website methinks!

    Looking at the image on the Music Exchange website it looks as though it is published by Studio Music - it might be worth contacting them direct to see if there is a Brass Band version available.

    If they can't get it to you in time, then ring the band office (number on the website linked above) and I'm sure they would do what they could to help.

    Hi mr Peter Bale, My name is Loek van der Heide, at the moment busy composing Opera 'IL Re Lear' (King Lear after IT. translation by Carcano
    and librettist Antonio Somma ©1855 submissed by G.Verdi. Verdi meditated & planned Re Lear already from his Prae adolescent period at Busseto Gymnasium.
    V. admitted Shakespear's novello's atmost. In this opera which I'm composing I use the marcia Millanolla, and via IMSLP I' could download a piano transcription
    in C-maj. I, although, dit transpose this march in Eb, Tonality's with 1-4 'flats at the key' the common tonality for Brass/Reed wind instruments....
    by the way, I dit arrange 'Millanolla' from my hearing-memory out of a soundtrack of the movie 'In Which we serve' .
    The 'quick-march' I'd arrange I am using in Re Lear act 1 scene 3, Bar 279 'Festive prelude in Nerilla's (Regans) Castell...
    The Brasswind instrument I am playing/studying is a 'Cimbasso', this is a converted Contrabass Valvetrombone, brand Cerveny in FF.
    Both mouth leadpipe and belljoint are bended so, the valve-block is bend-down likewise by common original Cimbasso's.
    Greetings
    and a happy Newyear
    Loek van der Heide
