    In Flanders Fields - Gavin Somerset

    Many are familiar with the ever popular poem, 'In Flanders Fields' written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae during the first World War. The poem tells of the fields strewn with crosses where fallen soldiers had been laid to rest. The opening stanza states 'In Flanders fields the poppies blow, Between the crosses, row on row,'. These words form the foundation on which this music was composed. The music pulls on the varying emotions one might feel if you journeyed through the fields and will leave your audience in little doubt of the sadness, bravery and honour, which those who fell in the Great War endured. Remembrance Day is a key event for almost every Brass Band. With the date approaching and little sign of full bands being able to gather to mark the occasion, we have made available a downloadable backing track (with click track) which bands can use to put together a 'virtual' performance of this moving piece. If bands cannot be there in person, they'll most certainly be there in spirit during these difficult times. To download the backing track to play along to, please RIGHT CLICK HERE & Save As .

    The Covenanters (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - Downie, Kenneth

    In 1638, many members of the Presbyterian Church of Scotland signed a document called the National Covenant. By doing so, they were declaring that they acknowledged only Jesus Christ as the spiritual head of their church, and not any king or queen. This had become necessary because the Stuart kings believed in the Divine Right of Monarchs and saw themselves as head of the church. In the previous year, Charles I had forcibly introduced the Book of Common Prayer, invoking the wrath of the common people who faced the threat of torture, transportation or execution if they did not use the new liturgy and worship at their local church. The net result of this was that many met illegally in the countryside or in barns and large houses. These meetings became known as 'conventides' and many took place in the south-west of the country. Anyone caught attending was at risk of execution by the muskets of the dragoons who were employed in the area for that specific purpose. This music was written to honour the bravery and loyalty of these Christians to their faith, in the face of extreme danger, in the hope that it will inspire us also to be faithful. There are overtones of military threat, secrecy and solidarity. An old pentatonic tune is used, which the composer heard as a boy being sung to the words The Lord's My Shepherd.

    Tale of the Dragon - Paul Lovatt-Cooper

    For decades the Japanese people were plagued by a fearsome dragon, which would attack the villages and towns killing many people. The Emperor, fearing for his beautiful daughter's life, decreed that if anyone could defeat the dragon they could have his daughters hand in marriage.The music opens at the gates of the Emperors palace. Our hero, a young and brave soldier, returns with the army victorious. To reward his bravery, the soldier is summoned to the temple by the Emperor.On his way to the temple the young soldier meats the Emperors daughter, represented by the slow Soprano cornet. They fall in love and the young soldier accepts the challenge from the Emperor and embarks in his quest to rid the land of the dragon.The music continues at the foot of an erupting volcano, the soldier finds the dragon and they enter into battle. After a fearsome fight and summoning every last bit of his strength, the young soldier eventually manages to drive his sword into the dragon's heart.With the final closing chords of this piece representing the fatal blows from the victorious soldier's sword, the dragon collapses and our hero stands victorious.Tale of the Dragon is a descriptive piece that provides opportunities for soloists within the piece to stand at the front to perform. This high octane finale has plenty for all musicians and listeners to enjoy.
