Browse a sampling of music.
The mission of this music site is to provide a diverse collection of music to the community of band enthusiasts. Over the span of 50 years, I’ve gathered an array of musical pieces that I now wish to share with all those who appreciate community band music. The spotlight will be on two remarkable individuals: Mr. Jose Brasil and Mr. Nuno Oliveira. These gentlemen devoted themselves to curating music for their respective bands from a very young age. This passion evolved into a valuable contribution that greatly benefited numerous Portuguese community bands across North America. It’s not an exaggeration to state that several bands might never have taken shape without access to these extensive archives.
While I received many compositions from the Mr. Jose Brasil Library, I was entrusted with the entirety of the Nuno Oliveira Library. It’s with this responsibility that I’ve chosen this platform to offer all these compositions without any cost. I’ll be listing the available works and progressively adding the corresponding PDFs. If you come across a title that captivates your interest and find that the PDFs aren’t yet accessible, please don’t be disheartened. Kindly send an email indicating your interest, and we’ll prioritize your request, expediting the process of uploading the requested work.
These efforts stem from the dedication of individuals who dedicated their life’s work to bands and the legacy of a complete handwritten archive, preserved by my dear old friend.
It is understood that this site also aims to offer my personal compositions. You’ll observe that certain compositions are available for purchase, while others are offered free of charge. Considering that some of my compositions are already distributed by publishing houses, it is important to uphold the agreed-upon retail prices. However, if your organization operates as a non-profit and expresses interest in any of these compositions, kindly reach out to us via email. We will promptly respond with a BONUS code, granting you complimentary access to the desired compositions.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
