      I’ve been searching through my RF music library this morning looking for Copland’s piece (I have several thousand songs all told) and can’t find one that I like enough to use for one project I am doing (have a couple of “no cigar” pieces but not “the” piece).

      Suggestions? (I’ve already looked on a few RF sites – Cannot spend more than $20 – less if possible).

       ” Fanfare for the Common Man ” is a theme lifted from Copeland’s 3rd Symphony. Maybe you can find a recording of the Third Symphony which is in public domain?

       Birdcat – found these sites for you…seems it is still under copyright.  But for future reference:

       Don’t know why my last post is blank…in any case, I was commenting on your choice of music – Copland is awesome!

      Hi Ophelia –

      My youngest son graduated from college this past weekend and I wanted to use Fanfare and Elgar’s Pomp & Circumstance in the video. Normally, since it is a private thing I would have no compunction using one of the versions I have on CD for the family’s DVD (I already have several RF Elgar’s) but I wanted to post online without problems from YouTube. I have several RF soundalikes for Fanfare but the original is the best.

      Birdcat, I don’t know if youhave found what you are looking for in your search for the fanfare. I ran across this while looking for additional sources for rf music. In another post grinner suggested dewolfe as a good source. I was on their uk site (dewolfe.co.uk) and found a selection called ‘Great Expectations’. It is not a note for note rendition but might be suitable for your purposes. If it works I’m glad to help for all your knowledge and suggestions that I have used. keep shooting.
