Don Morrison's Peals of Delight Months Major

There are three series of twelve methods apiece named after months: one of surprise methods, one of delight methods, and another of delight methods where the names are the French names for the months. 

This web page contains a variety of compositions in the delight months. Compositions of these methods in this collection also appear in their natural, alphabetic place among the pages of individual surprise methods. They are also all collected on this page for the convenience of bands that may wish to tackle them as a series.
