Many thanks to everyone who helped with "The Get-Together"
for 2 clarinets and band. The enquiry came from
Luis Rossi in Santiago, Chile.

The question has been resolved in two ways.
We all probably know the piano versions by Southern and Recordi.
The Recordi edition is very readable. I also have a 19th century edition
with piano.

With the help of David Whitwell's publications on band and wind ensemble
music and their locations, I was able to pinpoint the library in Rome
that has the manuscript of the original work for band.
("Winds", Box 513, Northridge, Cal 91328 - has now ceased trading.
I also noted that the work in question was NOT in the rather pricy new
reference works on wind ensembles, etc.,
by Stoneham, Gillaspie and Clark, published by
Greenwood Press, Music Reference Collection #55, 63 and 77).

Luigi Magestrelli in Milan has kindly contacted the library in Rome on
behalf of Luis At the same time, I had sent to me, off-list, a generous
offer from the owners of an unpublished working set of parts
for band, in the USA. This I have forwarded to Luis.
