Jamie and Lionel both well know my addition to collecting vocal and full scores. When I lived in Oxford in the 1990s I accumulated a whole run of the Stainer & Bell Carnegie Trust publications courtesy of a lovely chap at Blackwell's. Over the subsequent decades, like Topsy, it "grew and grew" to encompass as many obscure MSs, VSs and FSs as I could hoover up. Those were there days of the Harrogate Bookshop, Phil Haigh (Photomusica) in Knaresborough, The Wise Owl Book Shop in Bristol, Alba Music in Glasgow - days when I though nothing of doing a twelve-mile round trip if there was something of innordinate interest.

When I had to down-size in 2016, virtually the lot had to do go. Luckily, most went to a lovely dealer in Oxford - who hasn't managed to sell them, because no other bugger wants them! So today I reacquired Mackenzie's cantata The Witch's Daughter (1904) and Cowen's opera Harold (1895). Old friends indeed!

More fool them! Still, their loss is your gain. :)

There might well be those of us who are interested, if you could let us know who this 'lovely dealer' actually is!

My favourites, in no particular order are:

Colin Coleman - http://www.colincolemanmusic.co.uk/

Austin Sherlaw-Johnson - https://austinsj.co.uk/

The Sheet Music Warehouse - https://www.sheetmusicwarehouse.co.uk/

and are all lovely to deal with.

They know what I've got earmarked!
