Large-scale arrangements of Gwyn Seymour
David ‘Gwyn’ Seymour (b.1949 d.2016) left, in the last few years of his life, some magnificent transcriptions for (large) cello orchestra. These are generally in the public domain, although unknown to most – even amongst cellists. Johnstone-Music is pleased to share these artistic creations with you, FREE without cost according to the normal orders on the web page. The arrangements are to be found in ‘Downloads – Multi-Cello 8+/Cello Orchestra’:
Apart from the afore-mentioned works in the Johnstone-Music web page there are now well over 200 works in sheet music download for Cello Orchestra!!

David Gwyn Seymour (“Gwyn”) was born in Ynysybwl near Pontypridd in south Wales and qualified from Birmingham University in 1973. After rapid acquisition of his MRCP (UK) in 1975, he entered the registrar level of rotational training at the Canadian University of Western Ontario (1975-77). He then obtained a senior registrar post in the department of geriatric medicine in Dundee (1977-82) followed by a senior lectureship in medicine for the elderly in Cardiff (1982-1994). He took up the chair of medicine for the elderly in Aberdeen in 1994 and retired in 2009. Gwyn Seymour was the first professor of medicine for the elderly at the University of Aberdeen. ‘The child is the father of the man’: few people demonstrate the truth of Wordsworth’s assertion more than Gwyn. The person he became was shaped by his family and the south Wales mining community in which he grew up.
Gwyn’s love of classical music flourished in Aberdeen and he became a very capable cellist who played in a number of local trios, quartets and orchestras. However, his greatest musical talent was arranging music for the cello, which he pursued with enthusiasm after his retirement and established an international reputation.
