Thompson & Odell's Select Publications for Orchestra


A catalog of orchestral music issued by Thompson & Odell beginning in 1875. The works were arranged for a small orchestra of nine parts consisting of first and second violins, viola, bass, flute, clarinet, 2 cornets, and trombone. Many works were also made available for a "full" orchestra (noted in the table below) with the following additional parts: cello, second clarinet, first and second horns, and drums (often including triangle). Most works also included a piano part. According to the publisher's catalog: "Every number is arranged to be played with five parts, with good effect." (Which five of the nine parts would that be?). The source for the catalog listing below only covered to the year 1885 and so any works issued subsequent to that year are missing.
