Hi Geo,

The song you're looking for is, "A Time for Us"
(Love Theme from Romeo & Juliet). I just looked it up on sheetmusicplus.com and it looks like they have it in several books published by Hal Leonard, as well as some piano solo sheet music. Hope this helps! \:\)

Book Lady,
You're right, it is by Nino Rota. Maybe Mancini made an adaptation?

Umm, I see it's not only by Nino Rota, but at least also by Prokofiev, by Gounod and by Tchaikovsky....

I could be wrong, of course, but somehow I don't think Henry Mancini did much recording of Gounod, Prokofiev or Tchaikovsky. My guess, then, is that it's Rota's piece you're looking for, popularized in the tune "A Time for Us."

Geo Demon: Have you checked the credits on your Mancini CD? The information you need may be there.

Regards,

Yes, it was a Henri Mancini arrangement, but I couldn't remember who wrote it. I had the music at one time, but it disappeared years ago. The main title was "A Time for Us" with the subtitle of "The Love Theme from Romeo and Juliet". It was a very popular wedding song in the 70's. I think that everyone's right with Nino Rota, because that sounds very familiar.

I have the original sheet music in front of me. Cost all of $1.00!
The title is "Love Theme from Romeo and Juliet"
It is written by Nino Rota. The other credit states "Special Piano Solo Arrangement by Henry Mancini" copywright is 1968 +69. His picture is the cover in period tweed jacket etc...

Sounds like we probably bought the music around the same time, because I think that's about what mine cost. \:\) Because of the difference in the titles, mine was probably from another publisher though. I bought it to perform for a wedding in 1972 or 73 (the bride wanted it used for her processional). I used it at sooooo many weddings after that and apparently I lost it at some point in time. Fortunately, I had the song committed to memory by then. I think the last wedding I used it in was in the early 80's. Anyway Geo, I hope that we've all been able to provide you with enough information to help you find the music. \:\)

Have a great evening,

Lyn

Oh alright, I suppose I'll own up to being an old grandma! April (who posted about the Gershwin piece) is my oldest daughter, so two of my grandkids are hers. \:D
