Some of it was published but I don't know whether, in each case, it was in a form which has survived publishers' clear-outs. An orchestral suite from Herod was published by Augener & Co. and a song 'Sleep, sleep O King'  by Enoch. Of Ulysses, three numbers were issued by Novello; of Nero, a suite was again published by Novello and of Faust, a suite was published by Booset & Co. The MS of Faust is in the British Library but it appears incompete.

As with comparably high-profile incidental music by such major figures as Sullivan, German and Mackenzie, it is highly unlikely that anything else will come to light beyond what was published.

Theatres generally held onto scores and parts which were subsequently lost or destroyed. I presume this also happened to Sullivan's 1897 Alhambra ballet Victoria and Merrie England, luckily published in piano score and since re-orchestrated.


Fortunately, many of Coleridge-Taylor's scores are now safely housed at the RCM -

- as Lionel well-knows!!!
