In the world of march music, Sousa, King, Fillmore and a few others are the names most well known. But there are countless other names - and their music - which have fallen by the wayside. Delta Point Publishing is in the process of resurecting some of these gems of march literature all but lost in the deep recesses of band libraries throughout the United States.
It is the mission of Delta Point Publishing to bring these forgotten marches back to the bandstand from which they have, for so many years, fallen silent. In so doing, editor and arranger John Emory has taken pains to make corrections from the original publications in matters of note misprints, misplaced and inconsistent articulations and dynamic markings, archaic instrumentation, and general readability. In the process, measure numbers and rehearsal letters are added and the editions are then printed on quality 8-1/2 x 11 paper The result is a catalog of classic marches returned to the music world in modern form and playable by high school and community bands.
PUTTING THE "MOLTO RITARDANDO" ON YOUR LIBRARY EXPENSE
Band music has proven to be an expensive proposition for school and community bands, and Delta Point Publishing wishes to take steps to improve that condition. Our quality editions are priced well below that of the large publishing houses, and are archived digitally, enabling us to print each edition on demand. And because of this happy circumstance, our editions and arrangements will never go out of print.
GET FREE MUSIC!!
Do you have such a public domain march in your library (published prior to 1924)? One that has languished for years unplayed because it's just too unreadable, too small for older eyes, in poor condition, or has archaic instrumentation? Send it to us and we'll render it in up-to-date form - complete with corrections - and send the new edition back to you with our compliments. We will, of course, add it to our catalog for other bands to enjoy. See "Get Free Music" for further details.
