“fitting subjects for this series of sketches” [REIG]
One of Burt's and Scott's great interests is music. When it converges with the world of Sherlock Holmes, it becomes all the more interesting.
Joshua Harvey lives at that convergence and has some wonderful stories to tell about his history with music, with Sherlock Holmes, and with Patrick Gowers, the composer of the score of the Granada/ITV Sherlock Holmes series.
In addition to his work with Gowers' material, Josh threw himself into a Canonical composing fit during the pandemic, writing theme songs for a variety of Sherlockian societies (aka "scions") that met both online and in person. We have samples of his work that may give other societies ideas about future commissions.
There's a BIG surprise with regard to the Canonical Couplet quiz — one that you won't want to miss. And a prize awaits for the person who identifies the Sherlock Holmes story based on two lines of poetry and whose answer is randomly selected.
