Josette's Theme, arranged by Mark Howard

Pianist Mark Howard has arranged a beautiful, interesting version of Josette's Theme. "This charming melody in antique style resembles a gavotte, evoking delightful images of the French roocco period," Howard explains on his Youtube channel. "And well it might, since it played from the music box given to Josette duPr├ęs of Martinique by Barnabas Collins in the 18th century. The original piece was written by British composer Robert Farnon, and a later version composed by Robert Cobert. This is my own arrangement and a small tribute to Dark Shadows, unquestionably one of the most innovative and intriguing programs in the history of American television."

Thanks to Bill Branch for the link!

I would much like to find the sheet music for the original piece, by composer Robert Farnon, but I can't seem to find it. Any suggestions?

I've no idea. You might consult a store that sells musical instruments. A good one ought to have a list of contacts for hard-to-find sheet music.
