A list of George Allan compositions

The following is a list of George Allan composition titles that we have identified with the help of earlier researchers (to whom we are grateful), but also from trawling through reports of band programmes published in newspapers of the time through the British Newspaper Archive. We have a more detailed view showing specific cases where some of these titles are claimed to have been performed – but for this simpler view we just include the name of the piece, the type and whatever we know about the date. We will keep this up to date as we learn more.
