The ‘Musical Bouquet’ was sold to Darewski in 1917, it then passed to Feldman, on to Francis, Day & Hunter, and as from 1972 with E.M.I, Faber Music Ltd. took over some of the rights in 2005 and as from 1st. January 2011, it resides with Hall Leonard, U.S.A. During the transfer of ownership between Francis Day & Hunter and E.M.I., a Huge bonfire was built, which, alack-a day, destroyed vast amounts of documentary evidence, not only for the M.B.
