Can anyone help me...i've waited nearly 20 years to get the answer to this question ( thank god for i.net )

THERE IS A SHORT EXCERPT OF CLASSICAL MUSIC THAT APPEARS JUST AFTER A SKETCH ON AN EARLY PYTHON ALBUM ( POSSIBLY 'ANOTHER RECORD' )....IT FADES IN AFTER THE SKETCH THAT BEGINS - and now, book at bed time, Alan Hutchinson reads another extract from a bedside book...number 32, the lady lies with her left leg....etc etc .

THE MUSIC THEN FADES IN FOR APPROX' 20 SECONDS AND THEN FADES OUT TO NEXT SKETCH ( LUPINS )

Can any one help me with that piece of music, I hve loved it ever since the album came out ?????

Many many thanks

looks like you mean the 'previous record':
1. "Embarrassment/Book At Bedtime"
2. "Dennis Moore" (=Lupins)
...

i don't have that album; anybody?

i found 3 seconds of that classical piece, but i don't know it

I think I have previous record, though maybe only on vinyl, um i'll have a look and get back to you, I have contacts in a cd shop that are good with answering near impossible questions.

The credits of the Previous Record list the music,
and it all appears to be in the same order as heard the album itself.
If I'm right about that, then the piece in question is listed as

"Alla Handel" by H. Wild

... and that seems odd to me, because I find no reference
to any piece called Alla Handel by H. Wild on the internet.

Classical music annotations and titles are often given in Italian.
Google literal translation is "to the Handel" (as in George Frideric),
but plausibly it's "by Handel". And if so,
it's probably an arrangement of one of his pieces by one H. Wild.
Handel as the composer seems right - the music style is Baroque, after all.

I want to know what jazz piece is playing (for about 2 seconds)
in the Fawlty Towers episode where Basil turns on the radio very loudly
to demonstrate to Mrs Richards that it works. It may be nearly
impossible to find that out.

Hm, I don't think it was from the original tv programme,
but it originally appeared on Monty Python's Previous Record.

Handel's "Watermusic" seems like a really good candidate
although I can't find the exact clip yet. Someone out there
surely has a copy on CD - help us out!

WOW...I never expected sooo much help with this. I really do appreciate it.

I too believe it to be a Baroque piece - possibly Bach or now ( thanx to you're info )...Handel....just need to find it now.

Keep us informed if anyone comes up trumps -
