If anyone has a copy of the book about Joseph Holbrooke
by Paul Watt and Anne-Marie Forbes, I'd be very interested
to know what they think of it. It's fairly expensive, so I need
to be sure it's worth the money. Thank you.

In anticipation of not having any replies to my enquiry,
I drove to Oxford yesterday to look for a copy in Blackwell's
Bookshop Music Department. Bingo! They had one, and I'm
pleased to say that it is it indeed an excellent publication -
THE Holbrooke 'bible'.
It was also pleasing to see some other newish publications of
biographies of British composers on their shelves, including
ones on Brian Ferneyhough and Herbert Howells.
My luck was also in on Friday, when a trip to a Eastgate
Bookshop in Warwick presented me with a rare opportunity
to buy a copy of Jonathan Rennert's 1975 biography of the
English 18/19th century composer and artist, William Crotch.
Amongst his achievements are various piano arrangements
of Handel choral works, which I have, composition of the
Big Ben chimes, and a number of exquisite pencil sketches.
(The Big Ben chimes a.k.a. Westminster Chimes (or Quarters)
are the five E major bars in 5/4 time, struck in different
combinations to indicate each quarter of every hour.)
