Arp Schnitger Posted May 15, 2012 Share Posted May 15, 2012 With the prospect of playing the National Anthem a few times in the next few weeks, does anyone happen to know if the Gordon Jacob fanfare written for (or certainly used at) the 1953 coronation is available in a organ reduction? My copy of the vocal arrangement only has the final bar or two of the fanfare, and I don't have a copy with the full brass parts. Or has anyone transcribed it? I usually use a fairly short intro, but maybe this year it would be good to do something a bit more special- as I can't, as Sir William McKie is once supposed to have said to an organist at St John the Divine NYC boasting about the state trumpet, say "Young man, when I need a fanfare, I pick up the phone to the Life Guards or the Blues and Royals and engage their services!"
