Mr. Burgess’s Almanack is scored for 14 winds, percussion, and keyboard: 2 2 2 2 - 1 1 0 0 timp 2perc piano. Percussion = small hand drum ("petit tambour à main"), xyl, glock, vib. The Brown Orchestra recorded it from the handwritten manuscript score and parts, but earlier this year I began preparing a new computer-engraved edition. It's nearly done, but needs more work before it can be rented out. I anticipate completing the edition in November or December. This would be the only source for the materials.
