Scope and content

Arranged in order of opus number. Golland occasionally assigned two works the same op. number (numbered 1 and 1a), and JG/O/90 has no op. number assigned. The following op. numbers have no corresponding original file in the series: 11, 12, 14, 15, 30, 85, 86, 87 and 88. However JG/O/91 includes copyist's transparencies of opera 12, 14 and 15. The works not represented in this series are therefore 11, 30, and 85-88 inclusive. These have been listed by John Turner (using Golland's own records) as 11 - Two Christmas Songs 30 - Trio for trombones "for Chris Thorpe" 85 - Derbroence: Concert overture for brass band 86 - Dies Natalis for brass band (also arranged for wind band) 87 - Concerto for flugelhorn and brass band "for Stan Lippeatt" (also arranged for flugelhorn and wind band) 88 - Brass quartet no. 4 Phantasie. John Turner's research notes of first performances of many of the works are held at RNCM Archives.
