Neil Brand—Silent Film Music Archive

Neil Brand, a London-based pianist, composer and writer who performs regularly as an accompanist for silent film, has opened up a new portion of his website, The Originals, devoted specifically to making available archival materials from the silent era. At this point, the site includes a number of interviews as well as 3 cue sheets, 17 pages of extracts from The Flag Lieutenant, a program from the Tivoli Strand for Rex Ingram's The Garden of Allah, and a number of "Music and Musicians" columns written by Albert Cazabon for the Bioscope Service Supplement in 1927.
