    A Christmas Overture (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - Hess, Nigel - Littlemore, Phillip

    Nigel Hess' vivacious and colourful A Christmas Overture, originally commissioned as an orchestral work by John Rutter for his 2007 Christmas Festival, proved an instant success with audience and orchestra alike. Traditional carols, skillfully juxtaposed and interwoven, provide the thematic material. These include Ding Dong! Merrily On High; Il Est Ne Le Divin Enfant; Infant Holy, Infant Lowly; Personent Hodie; We Wish You A Merry Christmas and Angels From The Realms Of Glory, which brings the overture to a majestic close. Fragments of other carols appear along the way to enrich the texture of what is surely one of the most attractive pieces written for the festive season. Suitable for Premier Youth/2nd Section Bands and above. Duration: 7.30

    Good King Wenceslas

    Duration: 4:30 Minutes Percussion: 3 PlayersTimpani, Clash Cymbals, Tambourine, Tubular Bells and GlockenspielAll Rights ReservedProgramme NotesThis popular Christmas carol tells the story of a Bohemian King who braved harsh winter weather to give alms to a poor peasant. This takes place on the Feast of Stephen, the first day of Christmas (December 26th). This legend is based on the life of the historical Saint Wenceslas 1, Duke of Bohemia (907 – 935). In 1853 the English hymn writer John Mason Neale wrote his own version of this tale, setting his words to the melody of a 13th century spring carol “Tempus adest floridum” which had first been published in Piae Cantiones (1582). It is this version that has endured to become the popular carol of today.Jock McKenzieJock McKenzie studied trumpet at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester where he was a joint recipient of the college’s concerto prize.

    Bestowal of a Century - Christopher Bond

    A Concerto in Three Movements for Tenor Horn & Brass Band, Written for & Commissioned by Lowenna TaylorBestowal of a Century (2014) was commissioned by Lowenna Taylor, and funded through her Harry Mortimer Trust award which she was presented with at the 2013 British Open Championship following the completion of her studies at the Royal Welsh College of Music in Cardiff. The 15-minute work received its world premiere at the Cornwall Youth Brass Band Christmas concert in 2014 with solosit, Lowenna, working alongside the band under the baton of Les Neish.The 'Bestowal' refers to the presentation of the Royal Trophy by the then Prince of Wales to the famous West of England Bandsman's Festival in Bugle in 1913. Over the years it has been won by some of the greatest names in brass banding, including Black Dyke and Munn & Feltons - although more recently it has become a wonderful open festival that includes sections for local bands as well as visitors from all over the banding globe. 2014 marked the one-hundredth anniversary of the presentation of the trophy, which is the only brass band trophy to have the official seal of royal patronage.The work, in three distinct sections, opens in a mysterious way, building progressively with interjections from the horn. The composer notes its as though one can imagine different part of the trophy being put together, piece by piece, until the trophy is complete and a climax is reached. Following this, a playful theme is presented which is developed throughout the first section and interacting between soloist and band.The second movement, in complete contrast, is a lyrical melody; heart-wrenching throughout, and sits well both as part of the concerto and also as a stand-alone solo item. The third movement is light-hearted and virtuosic, demonstrating the technical capabilities of the instrument with fast and virtuosic playing, and a cadenza towards the end of the work.

    Gaudete

    Music for Brass Band Duration: 3:00 Minutes Percussion: 5 Players (3 Optional)Tenor Drum, Bass Drum,Tambourine, Cymbals and Glockenspiel (Optional)All Rights Reserved Programme NotesGaudete (meaning ‘rejoice’) is a sacred Christmas Carol of Latin text. As a single line melody to carry the words, is it thought to have been written in the late medieval period, with subsequent harmonies being added in the fifteenth century. The song was published in 1582 in the collection ‘Piae Cantiones’ - a collection of Finnish / Swedish sacred songs. This carol follows the typical structure for sacred songs at the time of its publication – a uniform series of four-line stanzas each preceded by a two-line refrain. The Latin text is a medieval song of praise about the Virgin Mary. My arrangement, whilst being something of an ‘indulgence’ seeks to use some musical language typical of the time of the original publication.Jock McKenzieJock McKenzie studied trumpet at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester where he was a joint recipient of the college’s concerto prize.

    I Saw Three Ships

    Duration: 3:00 Minutes Percussion: 4 PlayersDrum Set, Tom-toms, Triangle, Tambourine, Tubular Bells and GlockenspielAll Rights ReservedProgramme NotesThis is a traditional English carol rumoured to have originated in Derbyshire. The earliest printed version is from the 17th century and the familiar version was later published in William Sandys’ collection of ‘Christmas Carols Ancient and Modern’ in 1833. There are numerous theories as to the meaning of the carol’s words; after all, Bethlehem, the place of Jesus’ birth is not a coastal location. It has been suggested that the ships are actually camels (ships of the desert) used by the Magi for their visit to the baby Jesus. My arrangement takes advantage of the traditional ‘jig’ style of this carol to add a little ‘Celtic’ flavour.Jock McKenzieJock McKenzie studied trumpet at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester where he was a joint recipient of the college’s concerto prize.
