Hello,

Does anybody happen to have a copy of Lou Singer's lovely arrangement of Eric Coates' "By a Sleepy Lagoon"?

I believe that it appeared in "Chappell's Famous Melodies for Piano Solo".

Performed here by the indefatigable Phillip Sear:

Cheers!

You can email Philip for the music (as others in the comments section have done).
It's also available here: https://www.oktav.com/en-gb/d/797175e0 and on some other inexpensive music sales sites

The whole Chappell volume is on eBay: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Chappells-F ... 4962536562

Hi:

I'm looking for two Richard Myers scores; "My Darling" and "Hold my hand".

Any hint or help is appreciated.

Thank you so much.

I can see them both listed in the National Library of Australia's collection, but as Myers died in 1977, they're not available online yet.

The famous tune "My Grandfather's Clock" by Henry Clay Work (1832-1884 USA) is here treated to a slightly OTT fantasia by the English-born pianist, conductor, composer and impresario William Luscombe Searelle (1853-1907)

Luscombe Searelle (sometimes Searell) was brought up in New Zealand, wrote and staged several successful operas in Australia and known to a Melbourne critic as "a sworn foe of dullness and a warm friend of variety”.

I found this in the National Library of Australia online collection, and include both my cleaned up version of the scan
HENRY CLAY WORK My Grandfather's Clock [Searelle] (bw).pdf
and re-engraving to clarify the frequently over-crammed notes on the page which approach player-piano density in the later marcato passages.
