Missing Morley works

I expect that many of you (I might hope all of you) will have had a look at the "works of Joe Morley" elsewhere on this site.  This effort is now drawing to its conclusion, after banjo cases, piano…Continue

Morley's early works

I Have often wondered what Joe Morley might have been playing when he started off.  The earliest reference I have found to one of his own pieces is not quite what you would expect.In 1893, playing at…Continue

Encore, MusicTime and Passport music

I have been using MusicTime notation program for decades, and changed to Encore a few years ago.  Both have served me well.  However a glitch in Encore drove me to Passport Music support (who are the most recent publishers).  There is no response whatsoever, and further research seems to indicate that PassportMusic have gone out of business.  Does anyone have any information on this.I am stuck with hundreds of .mus file which these programs generate and I am worried that I shan't be able to…See More

Cello banjo player seeks company

Cello banjo players are few and far between, shy creatures who rarely venture beyond the back row of anything,but here is one who is actively seeking another couple of banjoists who would like to make up a trio.  Unrepeatable offer, as you don't get many to a pound.  This one lives near Reading, but motorways are good, and as they might say, have cello banjo, and will travel.See More

Hello Tony, good to see last weekend - did you enjoy the jacuzzi? We assumed that was why you were late for breakfast!

The only thing that imprinted on my mind was your enthusiasm and skill. Backwell was a great experience, even my mind going blank in the middle of St Louis Tickle was a good experience because the audience was so accepting. I guess it happens to us all from time to time and so they were very forgiving.

Anthony, as you know, I have been arranging a lot of my music for this site. I have a 3-part arrangement of A Banjo Frolic that is almost done. I didn't see this on your list of Morley pieces so I thought I would ask if this is one you are working on. If it is, I will work on something else. If you don't have it, hard to believe, I will continue. It has been a bit difficult because the different instruments were notated by different people so the final measures don't end equally. I have had to add a repeated section where the other piece had first and second endings or something like that. If you need the PDF or TIF files for A Banjo Frolic let me know.

Anthony, I have been using your pisocorporum song title list to determine the composers for each of my songs that I add to the Classic Banjo Radio site. It has been invaluable to me and I wanted to thank you for putting together such a vast compendium. I cannot remember when I got it but it has been many years. I often wondered who pisocorporum was and was surprised to learn it was you. My question is have you added to the list over the years? In my searching through your list I often come up empty when searching for a composer to a specific song. If you have updated it within, say the last 10 years, could you send me your update?
