    Hey all,

    I'm looking to get hold of copies of Goff Richards' A Sweet Shepherdess - as featured on Dyke's Essence of Time CD.

    I've prodded and poked Google in every way I can think, and also tried several brass band music suppliers, but to no avail. Is it even in print? Can anyone help here? Does anyone know a publisher, or where I can buy a set from??

    All help muchly appreciated!

    ;)

    Bing! An Answer within 3 minutes! Thanks Tom - I didn't realise it was part of a bigger piece - which might explain why I couldn't find it - I was looking for the wrong piece.

    What's the rest of Cross Petonce like?

    It was also set for the 2nd Section National Finals in 1994. It's very good. Musical and flowing with a great euph cadenza in the first mvt. Justmusic have audio excerpts to let you hear it's style.

    Cross Patonce is typical Goff Richards stuff. Quite enjoyable to listen to.

    It is approx. 12.30 minutes in duration in 3 movements. It is one of my favorite Goff Richards pieces and not just because of the Sweet Shepherdess.

    BNFL recorded it on The music of Goff Richards.

    Cheers Erik
