The score included no new music by Arnold, but excerpts from various of his compositions were arranged by John Longstaff. The original score was compiled by Anthony Meredith. A dispute was fought out over the royalties of Arnold's 9th Symphony.
Anthony Day was granted rights, having been left a substantial part of Arnold's estate. Arnold was a relatively conservative composer of tonal works, but a prolific and popular one. Arnold's most significant works are generally considered to be his nine symphonies. He also wrote a number of concertos , including one for guitar for Julian Bream , one for cello for Julian Lloyd Webber , two for clarinet for Frederick Thurston and Benny Goodman respectively, one for harmonica for Larry Adler and one — enthusiastically welcomed at its premiere during the Proms — for three hands on two pianos for the husband-and-wife team of Cyril Smith and Phyllis Sellick.
His sets of dances — comprising two sets of English Dances Opp. The English Dances also form the basis for Kenneth MacMillan 's short ballet Solitaire , and one of them has been used as the theme music for the British television programme What the Papers Say the Cornish Dances has provided the theme music for the television programmes of the cook Rick Stein. Arnold also wrote some highly successful concert overtures,  including Beckus the Dandipratt an important stepping stone in his early career , the strikingly scored Tam o' Shanter based on the famous Robert Burns poem , the rollicking A Grand Grand Overture written for a Hoffnung Festival and featuring three vacuum cleaners and a floor polisher, all in turn polished off by a firing squad in uproarious mock manner , and the dramatic Peterloo Overture commissioned by the Trades Union Congress to commemorate the historic massacre of protesting workers in Manchester.
