What sheet music did you buy last and why?

Per-Olov Kindgren's arrangement of Bach's chorale prelude "Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier", BWV 731. Very beautiful and not terribly difficult, so had to get it.
PS - I wish he would publish his arrangement of "Lady Madonna". That one's a hoot. He's great.

Nikita Koshkin 24 preludes and fugues. I bought it because I heard Asya Selyutina play them. Koshkins work promises to be one of the most outstanding contributions to our repertoire.

"Are You Happy, Your Heart Content," by Horatio Richmond Palmer, arranged by Per-Olov Kindgren. I like a lot of his arrangements. Quite a few of them have an attached video of him playing the arrangement, so you can hear what it SHOULD sound like...LOL This song is an American hymn from 1873, and it was used by Swedish poet and singer Evert Taube in his song, "The Girl From Havana."

Well I didn't have to buy it, but I got the Score for the Beatles Piggies from Bert's website.

"Down by the Salley Gardens," an Irish folksong arranged by Per-Olov Kindgren. In terms of difficulty, he rates is as a '2' on a scale of 1 to 5.....1 being the easiest.

Pomp and Circumstance 1. Land of Hope and Glory by Elgar, LA Guitar Academy arrangement. Not gonna lie. I think it's fairly difficult.

"So Far Away," by Per-Olov Kindgren. It's a "love song without words," as he describes it on his website. I haven't tried to play it yet, but I really like most of his "love songs."
I never cease to be amazed at the internet! In the last hour, I have ordered aluminum threaded rods and nuts, coffee, and this sheet music, sent a message to my sister, and received a purchase order with the accompanying drawing........and I've not left my office chair to do it! I have to wonder what the NEXT innovative thing will be.....that'll make the internet, as we know it, obsolete???

I ave a copy of Classical Gas that I again dug out and using TablEdit with the help of a friend I was able to tabbed it out exactly the way it was posted by Mason Williams in the 1972 Guitar Player Magazine with his narrative that this was the only true score as he plays without the "horns & orchestra" It was n micro fine print and needed a magnifying glass to get it all, tab and notes.

But, now I have the real version (not from Handbook) that I had played back in the 70's using just the notes. Now realising that I had a couple of mistakes, I am re-learning it properly and love it! This is what got me into classical guitar!

An article in New Scientist (July 1st, 2017 issue) claims that Mark Zuckerberg's next horizon is techno-telepathy. Direct mind-to-mind contact is "the ultimate communications technology" the mogul says.

So the NSA can read our thoughts. Terrific.

As for buying sheet music I've only bought the one selection I mentioned. I've downloaded and printed off enough free music to keep me busy for the rest of my days. Of course I'm eternally grateful to those who provide it, including M. Delcamp.

Vivaldi's RV230 (aka Bach BWV 972) arranged for solo guitar by Tariq Harb. I saw his youtube video for all 3 movements and loved the piece. I was looking for Judicael Perroy's edition of BWV 972 but couldn't find it anywhere.
