- Alan Civil – French horn
For No One is described as "baroque-pop," a song composed and sung by Paul McCartney for the August 1966 album, Revolver. Lennon said it was one of his personal favorites from the songs written by Paul. The arrangement is elegant, using a French horn for a solo and an obbligato in the last verse, the final not of which (high F) exceeds the normal range of the instrument. The lyrics really are a short poem about what it is like to end an important relationship. Originally called "Why Did it Die?" For No One creates an image of a girl putting on makeup and wondering about her lost love. Paul wrote it in March of 1966 while on a ski vacation in the Alps with Jane Asher. Paul plays the clavichord, piano and bass, while Ringo plays drums and tambourine. John and George were not present for the recording sessions on May 9, 16 & 19, 1966. This composition has been covered several times by artists as varied as Chet Atkins, Liza Minnelli, Emmylou Harris, Caetano Veloso and Diana Krall.
