This is about me, so the statements below start with "I". But the aim is do what I can to produce works for "You" to play and hear.

I use capella music software, which works fine for me. I don't use Lilypond, Sibelius or Finale.

I have contributed to IMSLP 1000's of files and 100's of different works, in scans, editions and arrangements, including many by Edward Elgar.

I have contributed some new composers including my great-grandfather Harry Drew, and Colin McAlpin.

I have made arrangements of works for orchestra, wind band, chamber groups, orchestrations for choirs and singers. If you try this yourself, remember this, because it happens every time: when you think you've finished, you've only just started, because, like a doctor or an accountant, 99.99% right is failure.

I have five clever grandchildren: including one who played the viola nicely at 11 months, before she could walk, she will have lessons when she is 8.

The IMSLP star is hereby awarded to you for your outstanding contributions to the catalog of music by Edward Elgar!

Among my contributions are the introduction of the following works by Edward Elgar. There are lots more now - I have given up counting them. To these and others I have added many arrangements of Elgar's music. I have contributed lots my own editions and arrangements of works by Elgar in all genres: orchestra, wind band, brass band, choral, chamber groups, songs and piano. These are complemented by Wikipedia pages on Elgar's works.
