Among lesser-known composers represented in music for the Duke of Cumberland’s band, some are identified as musicians employed in the band or in other private or military ensembles. One example is John Collier, who is represented in the Archive by twelve compositions and arrangements. Collier is identified as “Master of H. R. H. the Duke of Cumberland’s band” on the title pages of several of his published works, such as this arrangement for band of a work by Ignaz Pleyel.

Most music for the Duke of Cumberland’s band is accompanied by original folders used for storage. Folders are typically headed “H. R. H. E. D. C.” (His Royal Highness, Ernest Duke of Cumberland) and by a shelf mark. Some, such as the folder for Collier’s Pleyel arrangement, include an incipit of the work.
