    Thanks Mike,

    You are always informing me of new and unexplored composer for the organ, and I appreciate that very much. I have added these composers and their scores to my digital library.

    No problem Lars, when you've been retired as long as I have you find all sorts of things to occupy you!

    I often come across works for other instruments which could well lend themselves to arranging for organ, some trio sonatas, brass quartets and solos with continuo, some do actually find their way onto Youtube as organ arrangements. IMSLP often have works scored for recorders or brass, also MIDI versions which can be fed into notation software.

    I've been wondering how to tackle the brass and drum parts of Purcell's Funeral music for Queen Mary, choral section & brass no problem, but could/should one score the drum beats to pedal notes?
