We have just bought a second hand set of this march from another band, but find that the last part of it seems to have different numbers of bars which don't fit with other parts.
For example the 1st Trombone part has 29 bars between the last repeat and the end, whereas the 1st Baritone and...
Some time ago we bought "Concorde March", by Robert Farnon, arranged for brass band by Allan Street, commissioned by British Airways, copyright 1975.
Has anyone else played this? Anyone know the background?

Does anyone know a source of the music to "Zulu"?
We have purchased the Obrasso Christian Jenkins version, but the MD would like the arrangement with "Men of Harlech".
Any ideas to Title and supplier...
Whilst I think the new site is great, I am having trouble reading dark blue characters against a light blue background.
Is there any way I can change the appearance so that it reads black against white?
I have been asked to take the Training Band on Monday, which for scales etc is fine, but feel I could introduce some easy ensemble pieces to build on syncopation.
Question then: are there any downloadable, copyright free, easy ensemble pieces that I can use?

Sorry Mods, but I recollect a thread whereby band items on eBay could attract a donation to this site, or am I wrong?
I am about to put some band jackets up for auction and thought it would be a good idea if tMp got some benefit as well, but I cannot find the link.... but then I am an eBay...
I have been trying to locate a source of "Mack and Mabel" which I thought was published by Studio Music, but is not listed on their website.
I have tried the normally excellent www.brassband.co.uk search engine and this has not shown any results either.
So can anyone find a supplier of...
Anyone else see Wellington Town Band being described on BBC1 SW Spotlight programme as "Too bad to play on the bandstand"?
I thought the whole piece was bad journalism, since it was the public who marked perfomers in Wellington Park last year, and the lowest marked did not get invited back...
Has anyone got this march in their library?
Can you have a look at the second and third cornet parts (ours are missing) and compare with the 1st & 2nd horn? I suspect they are the same, and a bit of transposition may make this piece playable again....
