    Jupiter from the Planet Suite - Holst

    Programme notes:The hauntingly beautiful theme from Jupiter, from The Planets Suite has a rare qualityexpressing both optimism and dignity which makes it a popular choice for many formalpublic events such as opening and award ceremonies.The tune is originally found in the Jupiter movement from the large-scale work fororchestra called 'The Planets Suite'. Written by the English composer Gustav Holt ThePlanets Suite is thought to be his finest work.The theme has a steady 3/4 rhythm which provides a contrast in terms of tempo andmeter to the rest of the movement, and has been made popular as a patriotic song called'I vow to Thee My Country'.Performance notes:This arrangement makes use of a gradual increase in dynamics, beginning p and ending ff.With this gradual increase in dynamics is a gradual increase in the scoring starting offwith only the lower instruments playing p and ending up with everyone playing ff.The percussion part is very minimal in this arrangement (only 2 notes for the suspendedcymbal) and is an optional part.Just before the final chord there is a cut off marked in the parts.

    Les Alignements - Tim Paton

    There is a town on the Brittany coast called Carnac. Here you will find a line of prehistoric stones. Three kilometers in length, and at certain points, fifteen abreast, like a line of soldiers. They have been there for so long, that the sea has covered the last few hundred metres. This piece aims to capture the ethereal atmosphere, calmness, and timelessness created by this alignment in this beautiful countryside. This is ‘ambient’ music, creating several minutes of meditative sound.

    Little Christmas - Elaine Agnew

    An atmospheric, contemporary piece for brass band by prolific composer Elaine Agnew. The work was originally commissioned by the North of Ireland Bands’ Association as the ‘B Section’ test piece for the 2006 European Brass Band Championships, with funds from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland Lottery Unit and Belfast City Council.Programme notes:The night of Sunday the sixth of January 1839 was a night of madness. On this night, Ireland was hit by a devastating storm. Little Christmas focuses on the events of that day, leading to the arrival of the storm itself.The piece opens with a blast, which is quickly hushed by a motionless phrase whose silence suggests something not quite right. A solo euphonium mimics the local seer who prophesizes the coming of the storm but who is ignored by the locals, who are well used to his rantings and ravings.A brief percussion improvisation hints at an uncertainty in the air but this is quickly ignored by the following fast section with the bustle and excitement of the day’s preparations.Quiet solo chromatic lines swoosh over harmonic pillars of sound before the final “dizzy” section where the band lets rip at the arrival of the storm!

    Loch Lomond - Andrew Duncan

    A great arrangement of this Scottish classic ‘anthem’.Opening with beautiful tranquility of the familiar melody, led by a solo line on the Flugelhorn. The piece then develops and grows into a rousing, up-beat rendition with further growth and counter-melodies through to its full-on closing.With optional bagpipes and/or electric guitar parts, this is a super tribute to a classic melody.Look and Listen (performance courtesy of Kingdom Brass 2012, includes addition of a sung verse to further engage the audience):

    Love Unknown - John Ireland

    This is a beautiful setting by Steve Robson of a John Ireland favourite (Ireland composed the melody over lunch one day at the suggestion of organist and fellow-composer Geoffrey Shaw).The arrangement offers a tranquil moment for a concert programme, using a mixture of light and heavier scoring to bring the melody to life.The final ?'verse?' pulls together the full band sound and then concludes with a reduced ensemble to produce a moment of peace and reflection in the performance.Look and Listen:
