Notes On The Ophicleide Taken From The Groves Directory Of Music
1935, Bilston, West Midlands, England, Uploaded by janes at 2011/06/24
Tags: Joseph Kirkland Ophicleide Fuller Maitland

This was edited by Fuller Maitland and this was my interest. Joseph Kirkland was obsessed with this instrument which seemed to be a Black Country favourite. Then I saw in his papers that Fuller Maitland had written this piece and I thought it was amazing that these 2 men, so different in class (and probably every other way) shared this love of music. It was an interesting age, before the development of the television, when people made their own entertainment. Location is Joseph's home.
