Sunday Bandstand 2 August 2020

'The Nightingale' - Cornet Solo was written by Harold Moss (1891-1960). He was one of the finest trombonists of his generation before taking up the baton. His greatest conducting success were with Wingates, conducting them from 1909-1936 and winning the 1931 Crystal Palace contest playing Hubert Bath's test piece 'Honour and Glory'.

He then became musical director of Creswell Colliery, remaining there until 1948, when he moved back to Lancashire to take Leyland Motors Band.
He composed several solos and made many arrangements for his bands, mostly unpublished. In his later years he became a leading adjudicator.

'The Nightingale', was written in 1929, whilst is became a popular cornet solo it is believed that he wrote it for himself as a trombone solo. This was after his other two other well known solos 'The Firefly' in 1927 and 'The Joker' in 1928.

'The Nightingale' is featured on this show by the legendary cornet player James Shepherd in 1966.
