    I have stumbled accross an arrangement of this well known classic and am desperate to find it. I think it was recorded on the Black Dyke Mills Band CD entitled Great British Tradition, anyone got any clues as to who arranged it or where I can get it from :wink:

    Thanks all

    It was released as a follow-up to 'The Floral Dance'.

    okie dokie, I think I have found the answer and Derek Broadbent is not it!! The arrangement I heard didnt start with the drums and has no cornets throughout the entire piece (even better). Lots of muted trombones and dynamics in it, having browsed the justbrass catologue there is a Langford version which says no cornets so I guess that is the one.

    Anyone else who is considering now getting it please give us a few weeks on it so we dont embarass ourselves in comparrison to other performances!! thanks much

    Definitely Mr Hopwood. The original Lincolnshire Poacher.

    He can usually be found at the Woolale Arms any Friday Night

    Just to confirm Steve's earlier post, all the arrangements on that particular cd are by Gordon Langford, although no doubt there are several other versions in existence.
