Arrangements of Classics

Some of the ‘Classical Music’ titles which can be arranged. These are not ‘ready-made’ publications, but are tailor made to suit your particular group of players.

You are not necessarily restricted to these titles – I am usually happy to arrange any public domain classical music.
