    Frederick Davis was my father and I would love make contact with someone who could give me access to the musical arrangements for this production of The Enchanted Waltz

    Hi Paul
    FAMDA staged ‘The Enchanted Waltz’ in 1961 and I doubt that the orchestrations will have survived. I shall ask our archivist.
