    I'm surprised no one else has any offerings to add to this thread. It doesn't have to be baroque music, any "forgotten" works or composers qualify.

    I found this Trumpet Minuet by Alfred Hollins, new to me

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gU5-jO5dyCo

    (is that MIMF's Matthew Atherton (Soubasse) playing?)
    Cheers MIKE.

    Here's one! I had not heard of A. Bertali til I came across this video a few months ago. This, in my opinion, is a wonderful piece of music and the performance of it is equally wonderful!!

    Might as well add a couple more by A. Bertali

    Mike, Great idea for a thread! As much as I like the symphonies of Ralph Vaughan Williams {especially nos.2 {"London"}, 3 {"Pastoral"}, 6 and 7 {"Sinfonia antarctica"}, this evocative shorter piece of his will always remain dear to my heart; I'm not sure how much playing time overall it receives: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=KBkmghDhCak
    Whatever floats your boat May your reach always exceed your grasp

    Steve, as far as radio plays in UK the Tallis theme gets quite a few plays, the symphonies very few if any of the complete work, more likely just one movement.

    I agree that the Tallis theme is evocative, but when, if ever do you hear the original?

    Hawk, I particularly like the first and last of those works, must have a trawl for more Bertali.
    Cheers MIKE.
