Following recent disruption, Royal Mail are now restoring some international services. While we still cannot despatch orders immediately via “Standard Delivery” services, we now expect full international capacity to be restored shortly. Until then, for any urgent orders of ‘In Stock’ items we would still recommend customers select Courier Delivery within the checkout and your order will be sent out by an alternative carrier.
All UK deliveries are shipped as normal.
In late August 1942, Eugene Goossens, the conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony, wrote to Copland requesting a patriotic fanfare to help with the war effort. Goossens suggested the instrumentation of brass and percussion and length of about two minutes. A large group of American composers were given similar requests, and Goossens hoped to perform Copland's fanfare in October at his first concert of the season. Since Copland did not deliver the Fanfare until November, Goossens suggested another date: March 12, 1943, as it would then be income tax time, an ideal opportunity for honoring the common man.
