Hello,

 

some time ago there was a thread about the restored organ of Southampton Guildhall.

I would like to know if the example 5 from the recordings is a written piece? And if so, were can I get a copy of this piece? I tried Peter Hammond but he could not help me. So I am trying my luck here and would appreciate any help.

 

Cheers

Hmm ;)

 

Not I piece I've ever heard but it sounds curiously like, perhaps, William Harris?

The piece to which your link sends me is a transcription of March of the Bowmen from the Robin Hood Suite (1936) by Frederic Curzon (1899-1973) a celebrated composer of light music who was at one time head of the light music department at Boosey & Hawkes. It was a popular item with theatre organists, and I have a recording of it by Gerald Shaw on the organ of the Odeon , Manchester which is now in Stockport Town Hall. The sleeve of this denotes Boosey & Hawkes as the copyright holders, presumably of the original orchestral version. I do not know of a published organ arrangement but hopefully the above information might help you in tracking down one if it exists.

 

Good luck

This may be the best bet:

March of the Bowmen

And thank you from me, Brian. I was convinced that it was by Eric Coates or Haydn Wood and I spent ages ploughing through dozens of their works, becoming increasingly frustrated at my lack of success. The ear-worm has now been satisfied and I am no longer going round the house humming the tune.
