Key E.
Typeset from Boosey & Co. ms dated 1942, Manchester University Library Collection of Arthur D. Walker.
Orchestra: Flute, Oboe, Clarinets 1 & 2 (B), Bassoon, Horns 1 & 2 (F), Alto Saxophones 1 & 2 (E), Tenor Saxophone (B), Trumpets 1 & 2 (B), Trombones 1 & 2, Bass Trombone, Timpani (2), Side Drum, Bass Drum & Cymbals, Violin I (A, B, C), Violin II, Viola, Violoncello, Double Bass.
The editor has noted a problem that needs resolving: that while the Noel Coward Archive has George L. Cruikshank's dates as (1895-1951), IMSLP has apparently the same arranger with dates (1869-1958). (In this case, the conflicting dates do not pose a problem for copyright purposes, since Herbert's dates are later.)
