A Licensed Edition Publishing Partner of
Oxford University Press.
.Birmingham Symphonic Winds recently performed Paul Noble's transcription of William Walton's Prelude to Richard III - what a splendid arrangement it is with all the Walton soundscape faithfully retained within the symphonic wind band timbre. Its colours are both vibrant and subtle and it makes a brilliant addition to Dr. Noble's growing catalogue of imaginative transcriptions of British repertoire. We look forward to programming more in the future.

Band Director Dr. Emily Threinen, former Band Director, Shenandoah University, said:

"Having performed 'A Maritime Overture', 'Cotswold Dances', and 'London Salute', 
I believe that Paul Noble's contemporary band arrangements of Philip Lane's orchestral 
pieces are really well done. Lane's voice is appealing and accessible to audiences and 
players alike, particularly to those who enjoy British Light Music. Because of Nobles 
extensive career as a band director, his orchestrations are colorful and well-balanced, 
and the writing is idiomatic to the instruments of the band. 

"I strongly encourage conductors who are seeking tuneful and accessible British pieces to consider these works by Lane/Noble."

NOTE:  The current Director of Bands at Shenandoah University is Dr. Damon Talley.  See the website:

Band Director Dr. Bruce Moss, Bowling Green State University, said:

"We performed 'Celebration Overture' with a combined Alumni Concert Band and 
Wind Symphony to great success at a celebratory concert for Bowling Green State 
University's 100th anniversary.

"Performances of more Lane/Noble works are slated for this summer with the Wheaton 
(Illinois) Municipal Band. The music is readily 'downloadable' in PDF form - - it can be in 
your folders in no time.

"Band members will enjoy the melodies and creative orchestration, and audiences will find the music accessible in 
every way.

"Thanks for your work in transcribing such a large body of Lane's works for the wind band."

Band Director Professor Stephen Pratt, Indiana University, said:
"Paul Noble's arrangement of "Overture on French Carols" is an imaginative setting,
filled with interesting effects of timbre and countermelody in a brilliant and transparent 
score.  My wind ensemble and audience were equally delighted. I can highly recommend 
this piece to those conductors with good players seeking an arrangement of traditional
French Carols that goes beyond the ordinary in a very musical way. 

"I am looking forward to performing William Walton's "Prelude and Fugue" (The Spitfire) as well as other 
interesting selections from his catalog in the near future."  (NOTE: The Indiana University Wind Ensemble 
performed the Walton "Prelude and Fugue" (The Spitfire) at the convention of the American Bandmasters 
Association in Indianapolis on March 1, 2012.

National Concert Band Festival (UK) have established a Repertoire List for wind bands which is reviewed
annually and this year we are thrilled to be able to include for the first time four British pieces which 
have been transcribed for wind band by Dr Paul Noble. This kind of enterprise has been long overdue and 
allows wind players to experience many orchestral pieces by well-known composers: William Walton, 
John Rutter, Philip Lane, Peter Warlock and so the list goes on. ncbf will certainly be looking further at 
Paul Noble's publications for more and more gems. Keith Allen

Band Director John Holland, Lambeth (UK) Wind Orchestra, said:

"Finding accessible, fresh music for bands to play (without spending a fortune) is hard 
work, but not since finding Bandmusicpdf.net. 

"Downloading the sheet music and printing as many copies as needed is the next step 
forward in developing the legacy of the modern wind band, helping to establish an 
immediate and personal link with the independent publisher, and Lambeth Wind 
Orchestra is proud to be associated with that effort.

"The quality of the pieces is superb, presented to a professional printing house standard and 
makes my job easy as the band director in rehearsal and on the concert platform.

"Overture on French Carols" - - The rustic melodies are treated refreshingly well throughout each section of the 
band with scrumptious harmonies and constantly shifting textures ensuring that the audience isn't bombarded by 
sound; the closing stages see all the musical strands weaved together like a neat garland with a suitably twinking 
finale.

"Bethlehem Down" - -Treated with sensitivity in this arrangement, the meandering tune visits every section of the 
band, bringing out soloists but also highlighting the inter-connecivity between all the players, making it a superb 
warm up piece, as well as a concert item. This is definitely going to be a Holiday favourite from now on.

"We look forward to performing more works from this excellent catalogue and bringing Philip Lane's music back 
into the minds of British audiences through the craft and precision of Paul Noble's wonderful arrangements.

"Every year I look for something different for our annual Holiday Concert, something 
out of the ordinary, not just a re-hash of the same 5 or 6 Christmas carols. This year 
we found it. Our community band read through "Three Christmas Pictures" and the 
immediate response was quite positive. Everyone loved both the musical challenges 
presented and the fact all three pieces were "Christmasy" but still original. I'm 
looking forward to our audience's reaction in December and purchasing additional 
titles in the future."

When I enquired about the possibility of a treble clef baritone part, it was immediately emailed to me at no cost, 
so that I didn't have to copy off a part!   That is the kind of service that I appreciate.

"I've been recommending this music to band members, directors and librarians since I first received my order."
