Notes

The first year I was at the RAM Howard Ferguson told me there was a prize for a light music work for small orchestra and suggested I enter the Four Miniatures. I believe they were commended although they didn't win the prize. Later when I met Richard Frank I revised them and submitted them to the BBC, achieving a number of performances by the BBC light orchestras that then existed,
