Para.. whilst I suspect this the ultimate in a slow news day thread, for what its worth, said piece was chosen by me to one of several during my marriage ceremony.

One of the BBC Science programs possibly Horizon used to use his music a great deal in the 80s A number of the pieces used were on the "Snowflakes are dancing" album but there was another piece in similar vein which they often used which I've been unable to identify anyone have any ideas as to what it was?

Hello Mr D Ta for that. I've just spent the last hour going through "Pictures at a Exhibition" and various other pieces with so far no luck at finding the piece I remembered, I'm off to make lunch now or else I'll starve to death at my keyboard!;)

Leopold Stokowski did an orchestral arrangement for the Disney film Fantasia, but it never made it in to the movie. It has been preserved, though:

He also did the Bach Transcriptions, which I love. But finding the exact rendition is it seems, darn nigh on impossible - he did it so many times.

I had a mate that played that so badly a publican in Castle Don would give him a free pint at chucking out time to play the pub piano and clear the bar.

Good morning Paul, where are you? :p
