    Last weekend Wantage Band played in a concert in Kenfig where we had one item by Edward German and another piece by Irving Berlin. (I'm certain this was not deliberate!)

    Any other composers you could pair together like this?

    not related composers, but I remember reading somewhere about the title of music being linked to the composer.

    But to link the title, composer, and price of the music....

    "And the Lord Gave" - Mendelssohn, $2.50

    I recall a round on I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue many years ago. 'Kiss' was sung in the style of Tom Jones's pubescent cousin Aled, and 'What a Wonderful World' was sung in the style of Louis Armstrong's highly unlikely brother Neil. "And I think to myself......Houston, we have a problem".

    I hear on the grapevine that there is going to be another one of those 'hybrid' testpieces chosen for one of the big contests next year. It's going to be called "Variations on the Shining Wayfarer" and credited to Rubbra/Ball.

    If I arranged some music by the most famous composer born in Bradford would it be credited to Delius/Smith ?
