View Full Version : ashford fanfare

Hi everybody

I'm a french organist and I'm looking for several months for the "fanfare in g minor" composed by E.L. Ashford. I do not find anywhere any information about this score. Nothing about Edition, collection, publication. Does anyone of you know anything about this music sheet? Has anybody got this score and could send me a pdf or gif or jpeg of this music??

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

With the help of google.com and a few investigative searches I found the following: http://www.concertartist.info/bio/MAN003.html - an organist who has recorded the piece (http://www.kerkvolk-muziek.nl/detailpagina.asp?intProductID=13672)- there's contactinfo on the page, and maybe he'll be able to tell you where to get the piece. https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

His homepage: http://www.martinmans.nl/

but I've already done what you did. I wrote to martin Mans but this one said that he plays without score, just on memory of a recording.
That's why I try on organ forums.
Thanks for your help.

I have transcribed the Ashford for organ from its original form as a piece for harmonium without pedals. Pending successful resolution of copyright issues, my intention is to have the piece published. Indeed -- I have a publisher ready to go if we can get permission.

At long last, my transcription of the Ashford fanfare is about to be published. It took a long time to receive permission from the original copyright holder, but how things are set. The score is prepared and as soon as the publisher has it ready, you will be able to find it at http://www.evensongmusic.net/bestorgan.html.

After many months of effort, I finally secured copyright permission to offer my transcription of the Ashford fanfare. Go to http://www.evensongmusic.net/bestorgan.html and you can hear an mp3 recording and purchase the score.
