    Silhouette | Flugelhorn Solo | Kevin Bell

    This flugelhorn feature for Brass Band highlights the warm and gentle qualities of the instrument.The melody is lyrical, but not too demanding and focuses on tone and feel - using a repeating motif as its theme with an almost fanfare, ascending opening melody line.Silhouette has a short introduction with muted cornets which sets up the back drop for the solo to play over. The background accompaniment changes as the melody continues, creating a kind of musical silhouette for the soloist to play over.The piece develops as the band takes over with layered themes, eventually returning to the soloist who brings the piece to a gentle close. An ideal solo item and concert filler.InstrumentationSoprano, Solo, Repiano, 2nd and 3rd CornetsFlugelhornSolo, 1st and 2nd Tenor Horns1st and 2nd Baritone1st, 2nd and Bass TromboneEuphoniumEb and Bb BassesPercussion parts (4):1: Timpani2: Drum kit3: Vibraphone, Glockenspiel4: Tubular Bells, TriangleISMN: 979-0-708127-06-2

    Christmas Eve | David Stowell

    The scene is set one very cold, very snowy Christmas Eve. In the market square a Brass Band plays a traditional Christmas melody, when in the distance, a second melody can be heard from another village nearby, and the magic of Christmas is created.This magical true life experience was what prompted David to write Christmas Eve, but in this piece, he has also woven in a third melody.Instrumentation: Solo Quartet: Solo Cornet, Repiano Cornet, Solo Tenor horn, Solo Euphonium Main Band: Soprano, Solo, 2nd and 3rd Cornets Flugelhorn 1st and 2nd Tenor Horns 1st and 2nd Baritone 1st, 2nd and Bass Trombone Euphonium Eb and Bb Basses Percussion: Glockenspiel, Tubular BellsISMN: 979-0-708127-39-0

    Dances and Arias - Edward Gregson

    This work was commissioned by Boosey & Hawkes Band Festivals (with funds provided by the Arts Council of Great Britain) for the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain, held at the Royal Albert Hall, London, on 7th October 1984.Dances and Arias is in one continuous movement, but as the title suggests is a series of alternating fast and slow sections as follows: Dance – Aria I – Dance (scherzo) – Aria II – Dance. The opening dance is energetic and introduces a four-note motif (on trombones) which is the basis for much of the melodic material in the work. Throughout, there is a continuous process of thematic cross-reference and transformation.The first aria unfolds a long melody on solo cornet, eventually continued by all the solo cornets, and dissolving into a shimmering harmonic background (muted cornets, horns and baritones) over which is heard a brief self-quotation on solo tuba. This leads into the second dance, a frenetic scherzo, followed by the second aria, in the style of a lament (solo euphonium, followed by two flugel horns). This builds to a powerful climax which subsides, leaving the percussion to introduce the final toccata-like dance. It transforms material from the opening before a coda brings the music to a triumphant close. The large percussion section is an integral part in the work and uses a wide variety of instruments including timpani, glockenspiel, vibraphone, xylophone, tubular bells, tom-toms, snare drum, bongos and tam-tam.

    On Eagle's Wings'

    Music for Brass Band Duration: 6:00 MinutesPercussion: 3 PlayersTimpani, Glockenspiel, Triangle, Suspended Cymbal.All Rights ReservedProgramme Notes I first came across this beautiful hymn a few years ago at a friend’s wedding. The powerful words of the refrain particularly struck with me along with its lovely melody, which form the basis for the cornet solo. I intend for the music to radiate the warmth and comfort of the Eagle's wings before taking flight. It soars higher and higher (leaving behind burdens and unhappiness) before breaking through into the sunlight - the powerful climax for full band with the soloist soaring majestically over all.And He will raise you up on eagles' wingsBear you on the breath of dawnMake you to shine like the sunAnd hold you in the palm of His hand.'On Eagle's Wings’ was premiered and recorded by Jim Hayes for his 'Angels Will Fall' CD in his 'Jonny Midnight' series, accompanied by the Co-operative Funeralcare Band and conducted by Michael Fowles, in 2016.Tony SwainsonTony Swainson is Senior Low Brass Tutor at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS) in Glasgow.

He now enjoys conducting the Junior Symphony Orchestra at the RCS.

    Gymnopedie No 1 | Satie arr. Leigh Sharpe

    The Gymnopedies by Erik Satie are three piano compositions of extraordinary beauty. Gentle, eccentric pieces which defied the classical tradition. The name Gymnopedie is thought to be a reference to Satie’s joke at a party when, concerned by his lack of formal qualifications, on being asked his profession, he replied Gymnopaedist – which means – ‘naked athlete’.Instrumentation:Soprano, Solo, Repiano, 2nd and 3rd CornetsFlugelhornSolo, 1st and 2nd Tenor Horns1st Baritone1st, 2nd and Bass TromboneSolo and 2nd EuphoniumEb and Bb BassesPercussion parts:1: Glockenspiel2: CymbalsISMN: 979-0-708127-86-4

    La Calinda | Delius arr. Leigh Sharpe

    Taken from the opera ‘Koanga’ by Frederick Delius. Koanga is the hero of the opera, an African prince and voodoo priest stolen away and now working as a slave on a Mississippi plantation who falls in love with a fellow slave; Palmyra.This piece is a faithful arrangement of Delius’s masterpiece for Brass Band, and features a well loved and catchy lyrical theme.

    Marble Halls | Balfe arr. Kevin Bell

    ‘I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls’, otherwise known as ‘The Gypsy Girl’s Dream’ is a popular aria from the opera 'The Bohemian Girl' by Michael William Balfe. There have been countless recorded versions of the song, most notably recently by Irish singer Enya.This arrangement for Brass Band beautifully captures the lyrical quality of the song.After a gentle beginning the arrangement weaves between solo cornets taking the lead and full tutti band with broad harmonies. The continual pulse of this piece, which is in time, also allows space for rubato evoking the original writing as an aria. A vocal number lending itself very well to the brass band idiom.Instrumentation:Soprano, Solo, Repiano, 2nd and 3rd CornetsFlugelhornSolo, 1st and 2nd Tenor Horns1st and 2nd Baritone1st, 2nd and Bass TromboneEuphoniumEb and Bb BassesPercussion parts (4):1: Timpani2: Sus Cym, Triangle3: Glockenspiel4: Tubular BellsISMN: 979-0-708127-82-6

    Poppyfields | Kevin Bell

    It is 4.15am on 8th August 1918, and a British soldier waits for the whistle which will send him ‘over the top’ and into battle. Beginning with the Battle, entering a dream-like section as our hero advances forwards, followed by random skirmishes, before Battle ends and we enter a lyrical reflective section where the soldiers thoughts turn to home. Finally a lone cornet heralds a tribute to the Fallen, and answered by the euphonium, calls for hope for a new dawn and a better world. There is an optional narration from our soldier before the piece starts, and also his reflections of war and home after the battle is over, however the piece is written to be played with or without narration. This piece by Kevin Bell has it all: excitement, surprise, reflection and hope. Instrumentation: Soprano, Solo, Repiano, 2nd and 3rd Cornets Flugelhorn Solo, 1st and 2nd Tenor Horns 1st and 2nd Baritone 1st, 2nd and Bass Trombone Solo and 2nd Euphonium Eb and Bb Basses Timpani Percussion 1: Bass Drum, Xylophone, Glockenspiel, Sus cymbal Percussion 2: Drum kit, Acme Thunderer (whistle) ISMN: 979-0-708127-89-5
