    The MouthPiece
    Composed by Darrol Barry

    This march was selected by the members of The as the winning entry in our
    Composers Competition held in 2004.
    In all, 14 original marches were submitted - with a shortlist drawn up by Philip Sparke.
    The shortlist was then put forward to all tMP members who voted for their favourite composition.
    This winning march will now be used as the 'signature tune' of the tMP band which regularly performs at
    different venues across the country raising money for various charities.

    The March received its premiere performance at a Charity Concert held in Hadleigh on Saturday, 9th April by the Band
    and is now commercially available with proceeds of the march going to fund and support the forum.

    Full Information and purchase details are available from the following link:

    ....Is there anyway of getting hold of the other marches?
    I really quite liked one of them!

    This is the only march we are publishing so I suggest that you contact the composer direct.

    How can she do that when we don't know who composed which march? :biggrin:

    I have seen the two runners-up for sale. here

    I suggest you contact the composers if it's the other two marches that didn't get in the prizes you're after, though I don't know if their names have been released yet.

    Perhaps the mods will let you know ;)

    Thank you all :biggrin: ;)

    I think its good to be able to look at the others too- i think some were excellent- equally as good as the winning one- kind of ashame that Mr.Barry won- as it would have been interesting to have had an un-heard of composer being brought into the limelight, instead of someone- who is already very well known....

    anyway i will go have a peep at the links....
