Widor Toccata


New Member
I have recently purchased the Widor Toccata arranged by Sparke. In the published version that I got, I noticed that the percussion parts are tacet. Every recording that I have of this has percussion parts playing along. Any help on where to get these would be greatly appreciated.

James Watson wrote some percussion parts for the piece when he was at Black Dyke. Those are the only ones I know about. Please feel free to add some if you wish!


I know this is an old thread dwltrumpet, but did you have a problem with the bass parts?

We have just bought this for a concert in February, and discovered that the Eb and Bb Bass parts had been incorrectly annotated!

Anyone else noticed that they had been swapped?

How do you mean incorrectly annotated? Like the BB part was headed with 'Eb bass' and vice versa?

Have to say I've played this one a number of times and never noticed that.....


Yes, that's correct, the Eb part was marked Bb, and the Bb part marked Eb....

Maybe older versions were ok?
