Walton: Orb and Sceptre (arr. McKie)

Bert Jenkins

Recommended Posts

Hi! Does anyone know where I can get a copy of Bill McKie’s (not Robert Gower) transcription of Walton’s Orb and Sceptre March? It was originally published by OUP in 1953 but appears to no longer be in print. Amazon says it is out of stock...

Any help would be greatly appreciated? Perhaps someone has a copy they’d be willing to let me purchase?

There was a copy on the shelves of Preston town library in the late 80s! I think someone had written in fingerings in blue biro though, but that have been Murrill's Crown Imperial.

Looks like they still have it, despite the music library room now being a computer room and most of the shelves in the whole place being replaced by coffee tables and potted (I almost put "pot"; I don't things have degraded quite to that extent.... yet) plants.

How you'd get at it I don't know.  Other good town library stocks would no doubt have it, nearer to you.
