I have produced hundreds of arrangements and transcriptions. I am currently compiling a list of those made for This is currently just a small proportion.

N.B. Some of these arrangements are initialled with my middle names (i.e. ‘arr. DN’ instead of ‘arr. CM’). Also, normally each version exists in a number of different versions. So, for example, an initial arrangement for flute and piano will also be adapted for trumpet and piano, violin and piano etc. I normally produce these different versions, a list of which will be seen by following the links below. On some occasions, however, a version – especially when made for guitar – will be by a different arranger, even though the source of the original arrangement is mine.

Note (added 2017): I have no current plans to continue updating this list, which now represents a tiny proportion of the work carried out at 8notes.
