    A Bandsman's Overture (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - Sparke, Philip

    A Bandsman's Overture was commissioned by British Bandsman magazine to celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2012. It was premiered by Black Dyke Band, conducted by Dr Nicholas Childs, at a special anniversary concert held in Symphony Hall, Birmingham, on July 1st.British Bandsman was for a period known as British Bandsman and Contest Field, following an amalgamation of two magazines. The then owner, John Henry Iles, celebrated this new title by commissioning Ord Hume to write the famous march, BB & CF. As a salute to this heritage A Bandsman's Overture starts with the four notes, B(b)-B(b)-C-F, a motive which permeates an opening fanfare, which contrasts a busy opening with a more legato central section. This gives way to a bustling Vivo, based on repeated staccato notes. A change of key heralds a central cantabile melody, first on euphoniums and baritone and then played by the full band, which is followed by a short development section. This leads to a transformed reprise and a return of the opening fanfare, decorated this time by florid muted cornets.Duration: 6:00

    Huntingtower - Ottorino Respighi - Alastair Wheeler

    Whilst best known in the Brass Band world for The Pines of Rome, Respighi wrote Huntingtower in 1932 for Concert (wind) Band for a special concert in memory of John Philip Sousa, who had passed away on March 6 of that year. The work was premiered by the US Army Band. With only around 6 weeks to compose the work, his inspiration for the piece came from a visit to Huntingtower Castle in Scotland. A standard in the wind & military band repetoire, the work is available for Brass Band and is a great alternative to some of the traditional Overtures.

    A Jingle Fantasy - James McFadyen

    This dark tale of Jingle Bells for brass band by James McFadyen is sure to give your seasonal concerts a touch of modernism, and will certainly create a bit of a talking point at your Christmas concerts. Although not immediately obvious as one to put on your public programmes, progressive bands will enjoy putting together a varied programme and including arrangements that shine a new light on old classics.History of Jingle BellsOriginally entitled One Horse Open Sleigh when composed in 1857 by American composer and songwriter James L. Pierpont (1822-1893), Jingle Bells has gone on to become one of the most recognisable Christmas songs of all time.Pierpont's lyrics remain largely untouched, but as you will notice from the following original text, there are a few differences:Dashing tho' the snow,In a one-horse open sleigh,O'er the hills we go,Laughing all the way;Bells on bob tail ring,Making spirits bright,Oh what sport to ride and singA sleighing song tonight.Special Features of this ArrangementIn typical McFadyen style, the original of Jingle Bells as-we-know-it is flipped on its head. The most arresting difference is the speed. The piece is a lot slower than the original, but there are numerous musical devices which keep the music pacing along, including short arpeggiated motifs on baritones and euphoniums.The overall sound of this arrangement of Jingle Bells is dark although, the most skillful of conductors will see the poetry in the music. There is much storytelling to tell here, which builds to a rather serious finale and then closes down with a series of effervescent chords in the lower band.For those looking for a more traditional arrangement of Jingle Bells, one can be found in James McFadyen's lovely medley of Christmas tunes, Christmas Sweets.

    A Holly Jolly Christmas - Johnny Marks - Len Jenkins

    "A Holly Jolly Christmas" is a Christmas song written in 1962 by Johnny Marks. He was also responsible for Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Rocking Around the Christmas Tree amongst his other compositions. The most well-known vocal editions are those by Burl Ives who recorded it in 1964 for a Christmas special, and then re-recorded in 1965 for his holiday album, Have a Holly Jolly Christmas. This latter version of the song has a somewhat slower arrangement than the previous version and featured an acoustic guitar solo introduction; it is this version that has since become the more commonly heard rendition on radio. More recently, it has been recorded by Michael Buble.
