    Over the years, the Pacific Brass Band has acquired several sets of brass band music from a variety of sources, including eBay. Some of these were incomplete, and I'm trying to fill out these sets by obtaining copies of these individual parts, where it can be done without violating copyright.

    One such piece is "Our Glorious Empire" by William Rimmer. I believe this piece to be in the Public Domain in both the UK and the USA. (Our nearly-complete set is old enough that the Tenor Trombone parts are in Tenor Clef.)

    We are in need of the following parts:
    • Eb Soprano Cornet
    • Bb Cornet 3
    • Bb Flugelhorn (if one was published)
    • Eb Horn 1
    I would be most appreciative if someone whose band library includes this piece could scan the above parts and email them to me. My email address in in the "Contact Details" of my profile on this website.

    Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide!

    A full set is still available from the publishers - they may also provide the missing parts for you.

    I should have included in my original posting that Wright & Round will gladly sell me a full set, but they say because it's an "Archive" edition they will not supply individual parts. I don't really want to pay £22.00 plus shipping to the USA to get the three or four parts we're missing.
