The Phantom Melody (1912)
Albert Ketèlbey (1875-1959) famous English conductor, composer and pianist. He is frequently quoted as becoming Britain's first millionaire composer. Most famous for "In A Monastery Garden" (1915) and "In a Persian Market"(1920).

Originally written as a piano solo, it has been adapted for solo instrument and piano, orchestra, and even a vocal version. It was recorded on the Wurlitzer Organ in the Trocadero Super Cinema by Sydney Gustard on His Master’s Voice in 1929. You can hear that recording here:

I created my own arrangement from the piano sheet music.... You get to hear the Vibraphone (with the rotors on and off) along with a pretty melody played on a lone Tibia.
