    I am looking for the following sheet music for full brass band for a planned wedding:

    Finale from Organ Concerto No.3 (with Organ part): Saint-Saens
    The Great Gate of Kiev: Mussorgsky arr. Howarth
    Overture to Henry V: R Vaughan-Williams

    Can anyone help?

    I think Philip Wilby made an arrangement of this???
    BB Willebroek played it last year in Brussels (with a good friend of mine on the big organ of the conservatoire concert hall)

    So I did some research:
    Black Dyke recorded an arrangement by someone called Cosens on Cathedral Brass
    Sellers recorded the Wilby arrangement on Somehwere in Time

    I'm 99% sure Frank Renton did a version of this, I heard Grimethorpe play it at Spennymoor a few years ago. Without organ, though? Might be a one-off, though, don't know if it's published.

    It is Frank Renton and it is published... been knocking round for a while that one. Still takes a lot to pull it off though (as it were).

    Frank Renton's version of the Saint-Saens is published by Kirklees, Henry V is published by Boosey & Hawkes (distributed by Studio Music) and I think the Howarth was published by Chester Music - If you can't find this MMI Music have an equally good (IMHO!) version of a large part of Pictures arranged by Matthew Hackett (MRSH here on tMP).

    I may be wrong but........

    I think the Renton arrangement is for band and not organ. i.e. the solo part is incorporated into the ensemble. I played this with Brighouse at Huddersfield Town Hall, and the organ certainly wasn't playing a solo!

    Good though - I was on timps!!!!!

    I would ideally like the arrangement with Organ - does anybody know if this is published, and by whom??

    There are two (including the Frank Renton one) on the Just Music website HERE

    Just type 'Organ Symphony' in the Quick Search.

    Why don't you give them a call. I'm sure they could help if they don't do it.

    This is the Wilby arrangement Jan referred to above. I don't know the publisher, sorry, but doesn't Philip Wilby's stuff come through Maecenas Music?

    Wasn't the music for Henry V written by William Walton?

    Walton wrote the music for the Olivier film, but the Vaughan Williams overture already existed: indeed it was R V-W who suggested the inclusion of the Agincourt Song, which appears in both works.
