    Hi batonwaggler

    Nope, it's definitely Golden lady if you mean the piece I think you do. Named after a golden statue that was discovered somewhere after being walled up I believe. (someone will be along in a minute with the proper story I'm sure!!)

    It's by Goff Richards, and published by studio music. You can find it on their best sellers list here.

    Good luck with it. It's one I rather like too. :)

    I can't give the full story, but the statue in question is the Gëlle Fra in Luxembourg (lovely place).

    You can read about it yer:ëlle_Fra

    Goff Richards composed the piece for Cornwall Youth Brass Band's tour to Luxembourg in the early 90s.

    There's a very good recording of it by the Bodmin Town Band on their Light As Air Cd too.
