Benjamin Franklin White (1800), Frank Comstock (1922), Giuseppe Matteo Alberti (1685), Gottfried Scheidt (1593), Harald Muenz (1965), Ignazio Cirri (1711), Ildebrando Pizzetti (1880), James Bernard (1925), Johann Joseph Abert (1832), John Harle (1956), José Mauricio Nunes Garcia (1767), Leo Justinus Kauffmann (1901), Lodewijk de Vocht (1887), Masashi Hamauzu (1971), Uuno Klami (1900), Wilhelm Weismann (1900)



Hmm. Unless the gavel is a reference to Pizzetti's opera Dčbora e Jaéle, which is based on the story from the Book of Judges, I'm stumped. Unless you're being random again, of course. Contrary to the depiction often seen in popular television programmes (yuk), judges in UK do not use hammers and gavels; it's a peculiarly American tradition (one among so many such).  Grin

Nope, still stumped. According to Wikipedia, If I Had a Hammer was written by Pete Seeger and Lee Hays, neither of whose birthday it is today. I'm not ashamed to admit that I didn't know any of that. I can certainly understand your wanting a hammer so that you could belt certain people (who shall remain nameless) over the head with it!

Who wrote many outstanding scores for Hammer films?



No-one who saw it lived to describe it! A bit like a visit to AMF methinks.

Oh well a bit of Googling reveals it was James Bernard. Pardon my iggerance but I'd never heard of him. Hammer films were never my thing; there was always enough horror indoors.  Embarrassed

You are right, of course, but I wonder whether Léon Boëllmann would have been another to 'stand out' had he not died so young. Idle and pointless speculation, no doubt.
