A Souvenir of Grieg

A manuscript bringing together two bands, an arranger and a professional conductor on a singular occasion.


Alexander Owen conducted two bands at the 1908 British Open Brass Band Championships, when the test piece was “Souvenir of Grieg” – Stalybridge Borough and Lea Mills. He had transcribed his own copy score of Charles Godfrey’s new arrangement.

Owen, Alexander (6)

The paper below gives some information around the piece (which apparently has never been used in a contest since), the arranger, the conductor and the bands. A PDF of the scanned score is also available.
