    Classical Brass - Various - Gavin Somerset

    This medley of famous classical music is the perfect addition to any concert. Beginning with the 'Barber of Seville' before the piece sets off on a journey with tongue placed firmly in cheek! Let your audience here the great classical works of Rossini, Grieg, Liszt, Mendelssohn (& others) as they've never heard them before. The various famous melodies all stay around long enough for your audience to recognize them before being moved off in another direction completely. This work is a musical journey that is perfect for formal proms concerts, yet certainly would not be out of place on a bandstand either. The piece has many opportunities for bands to add their own choreography if desired. A toe tapping, audience pleasing, journey that leaves the audience wanting more.

    Cinderella (Overture) - Rossini - Julian M Blakestone

    Rossini's Overtures are very distinct in their style, fanfares, heavy scoring and more memorably, the themes which he creates. For years, the Brass Band movement has enjoyed his well known "William Tell" & "Barber Of Seville" Overtures, yet the Overture to Cinderella has seemingly gone unnoticed. Now comes an arrangement by Julian Blakeston of this work, which has all the magic and excitement of his more "famous" overtures, although sadly until now has not been at the forefront of the Brass Band program.

    Song for the Frontline - John Barber

    Song for the Frontline was composed in April 2020 during the UK’s lockdown imposed to limit the spread of the deadly Coronavirus. Amongst many other consequences, the lockdown brought about the end of ensemble rehearsals and as such, Song for the Frontline was released as the third of Foden’s ‘Stay at Home Banding’ performances. Written to help raise funds for the NHS and other frontline services, the music was recorded by band members individually at home with the ‘premiere’ given on Thursday 16th April 2020 alongside a video featuring colleagues working with the Police, Fire services, the NHS and within other frontline roles. The music is a reflective ballad with a catchy motif that unifies the verse, whilst the chorus builds to highlight the emotional context of the time in which it was written. The piece is composed to be accessible both to the listener and performer hopefully allowing all the opportunity to take part and enjoy the music.Also available to purchase in print from(external webpage, opens in new window)

    The King of Swing - John Barber

    Benny Goodman was an American jazz clarinettist and bandleader known as The King of Swing. Composed for Foden’s Brass in Concert performance in 2018, that year marked the 80th anniversary of Benny Goodman’s legendary debut at New York’s Carnegie Hall. In the country’s most hallowed classical concert hall, this concert was so much more than Benny Goodman; it was, in many ways a ‘debut’ of swing itself, an unprecedented presentation of authentic jazz and racial integration on a stage of unparalleled prestige. The King of Swing is a lively up-tempo tribute to this ground-breaking musician. With the characteristic Gene Krupa drum line and central build section, the full power of the ‘big band’ can be enjoyed as different sections of the band are featured. The music will have both your toes and audience tapping along!Also available to purchase in print from(external webpage, opens in new window)

    Thy Tribute Bring - John Barber

    Thy Tribute Bring is a fantasy based on themes from John Goss’s 1869 hymn Praise my Soul the King of Heaven and was written as the finale for Foden’s 2018 Brass in Concert programme. The opening three-note ‘Praise my Soul’ motif in horns and tubular bells leads to the initial presentation of the hymn before the music energetically drives forward, supported by the florid counter melodies and a rhythmic bass line. There is a minor presentation of the theme during which the intermittent percussion line attempts to frustrate and hinder the flow of the music before a calm and reflective slow melody, based on an inversion of the melodic line ‘to thy tribute bring’ is heard in solo cornet. The music concludes with a triumphant and rousing restatement of ‘Praise my Soul’ echoed throughout the band leading to the glorious final climatic chord.

    Coventry Carol - 16th Century English Traditional - John Barber

    Coventry Carol dates from the 16th Century. Traditionally sung 'a capella', the carol refers to the Christmas story from chapter two in the Gospel of Matthew and the Massacre of the innocents, in which Herod ordered all male infants under the age of two in Bethlehem to be killed. It takes the form of a lullaby sung by mothers of the doomed children.In this arrangement, the Dies Irae or 'Day of Wrath' theme heard in the introduction lets us know of the impending rage and massacre portrayed in verse three, before the music eventually subsides and resolves with calmness and assuredness with the raised third tierce de Picardy.

Veering away from the original with the help of a driving Cha-Cha beat, a piano Montuno line in the baritones and featuring an opportunity for Conga players to revel in the moment, God Rest Ye Merry, Cha-Cha Men is a lively and fun take on this Christmas classic.
