I don't think there is, but someone may possibly have done one which your post will hopefully flush out as I'd be keen to have one too. To be honest, it's fairly easy to figure out from the full score but I haven't attempting it play it from the fs in a service - just at home.

Thanks. I did wonder if that was the case. I’m recording the accompaniment for a virtual performance, and was discussing the Willcocks introduction with the person organizing - hence my query. Probably too late to learn it for this anyway, so shall use my original plan which is the June Nixon intro. Not as grand as the Willcocks, but very effective all the same.

David, I have transcribed it from the brass parts and would happily send you the pdf, if you don't mind the fact the notation software I used for it is a bit ropey! I have the Hark the herald one too, but I rarely use that as I don't think it's as effective. Please PM your e-mail address if you're interested.

I suspect there may have been a limited publication around 30 years ago.  I certainly bought a copy that included Hark the Herald from my then local music shop.  IIRC it was a set of 4 brass intros, copied from a fairly neat handwritten score.  I no longer have it - I passed it on to one of my sons when he was involved in a brass band, and he now can't find it (I asked a couple of years ago if I could have it back). I wonder if it might be worth asking your local brass band or other places (schools etc) where there are brass players.
