I'm looking for a piece of music called 'Study in E Flat' which was used in the ABRSM grade three piano syllabus in the mid to late 1950's, but am thinking it was 1957. I am having lots of trouble finding it as I cannot remember the name of the composer.
Here is what I can remember of the song:

There is an Associated Board book called graded piano studies . In the grade 3 book there are Eb ones by Loeschhorn and Le Couppey. Other study composers are Mayer, Berens, Kohler, Bertini, Duvernoyl, Gurlitt, Hennes. Don't know if there are Eb ones by these composers.

Can you describe the direction of the melody as forum members could probably get it from that? eg  up up up down up down.

OH also says that around that time they were partial to studies by Loeschhorn. So might be worth searching with that name.

Edit - Cross posted with Maggie May.
