I believe that between Frederick Fennell recordings with Tokyo Wind Ensemble and the University of Illinois recordings of Harry Begian; you might be able to find some good expamles of each of the pieces in question.

(yes, I know that the Fennell ensemble stated is wrong, but I don't have my copies in fron of me at the moment), and my spelling is off.

The Vaughn Williams Hammersmith has suffered from a wide variety of tempo. I have played it a quarter note of 60 and 90.

The Mendellsohn is marked allegro moderato in the orchestra version, although I am trying to remember the exact tempo markings at the tuba sections.

The others I am not as familiar with, and will leave for others to comment on.

Good luck

Tom Mason
