    Could anybody help with the above.
    Do anybody Know how I can get hold of a score for the above march??

    I'm trying to avoid the job of spending an eternity at the PC on Sibelius and if anybody could help me out I would of course try to renumerate the individual with liquid replenishment.

    I was going to suggest contacting Wright & Round, since they have recently begun to offer a range of newly originated full scores for pieces which previously had none. However, after having had a quick look on their website myself (out of curiosity), I found an entry for "The Wizard" by W. Rimmer, not Geo. Allen.

    Is this a different piece entirely?

    The Wizard is Hepworth's contest march and I think we tried really hard to find a score but we had to resort to putting it on Sibelius.

    I'm not sure, but I've a vague memory of an antipodean version "The Wizard of Oz" - may have been one of Lithgow's :shock: ;) :oops:

    Do you need permission from the publishers to do this?

    When I made enquiries a few years ago about doing a similar exercise (ie: using a notation program to input individual parts and create a full score) for "The Black Knight", the answer was unequivocally that to do so without permission (ie. a licence) would be a breach of copyright.

    As it happens, it didn't matter because Wright & Round subsequently went ahead and published a new score for the march, so we just bought it.
