GLASGOW - The Vital Spark at BroomielawAn affectionate portrait of Neil Munro's "Para Handy Tales", and the adventures of the madcap crew of the puffer "The Vital Spark" as it sailed up and down the Firth of Clyde from its berth in the heart of Old Glasgow. Full of quirky west coast humour, and much loved by Scots the world over.III. CARDIFF - A Romance in Black and GoldAn imaginary soundtrack to a doomed love story in the melting pot of Tiger Bay.IV. PORTSMOUTH - Of Tallships and Towers, and Tales from AshoreA rumbustious finale, portraying the energy and activity of this still busy waterfront, with frequent references to our glorious nautical heritage.

Peter becomes the leader of the Lost Boys, a band of boys who were lost by their parents and came to live on the mythical island of Neverland.Scottish Novelist and playwright, J.M. Barrie, created Peter's character based on his older brother, David, who died in an ice-skating accident the day before his 14th birthday. His mother and brother thought of him as forever a boy.Memories of a Lost Boy can be heard on Flowers Band's 2018 CD release: Celebrate - 50 Years of Flowers.

    Mist of the Forest - Gareth Wood - -

    The inspiration for this work is a part of South Wales where the composer spent his childhood. The Afan Forest Park is an old mining area that has been extensively reclaimed and transformed through one of the earliest reclamation schemes in Wales.The forest is picturesque all year round, but is particularly beautiful at dawn in the summer when the moisture of the sea in Swansea Bay and the heat from the golden sun combines to create a unique mist.The music seeks to capture the undulating effects of the changing density of the mist as the sun gradually burns away the moisture.Mist of the Forest also forms the penultimate movement of the composer's extended work for brass band, Brass Triumphant - a work composed for the Cory Band during their 125th anniversary year of 2009.

    Peacemakers - Dan Price - -

This speech can be narrated. Alternatively, a free audio download is available from the downloads section of this site.Peacemakers has been recorded by Grimethorpe Colliery Band on their CD 'Grimethorpe Entertain' available to buy here.

    Prelude and Fanfare - Dan Price - -

    Prelude and Fanfare takes its inspiration from a piece of NSA Video footage, where a camera is attached to a piece of debris and jettisoned into space from the space shuttle.The work is a musical reflection of this journey, starting with a 'weightless' lontano section, followed by a high-octane musical representaion of the debris journey, from re-entry of the earth's atmosphere, the plummet back to earth and the inevitable final "thud" of the journey's end.This musical study explores the use of minimalist techniques and ideas within the confines of the brass band idiom. The overall structure of the piece is based on the shape of a crescendo, starting at the softest level the ensemble is capable of, finishing at the greatest.

Hazo as a gesture of appreciation for all of the kind things Jack Stamp had done for him; ranging from his unwavering friendship to his heartfelt advice on composition and subjects beyond.Ride takes its inspiration from a fifteen-minute drive by Samuel from a composer's forum to the home of Jack. It was whilst making this journey that Ride was written, capturing the exact moment in Samuel's life when Jack's generosity was equal to the beautiful Indiana countryside, blurring past his car window.

    Starburst and Canyons - Paul Lovatt-Cooper - -

    The annual RNCM Festival of Brass features a number of the country's top bands and is a platform for modern compositions. Starburst and Canyons was composed for Dr Nicholas Childs and the Black Dyke Band to perform at the festival in January 2011.This piece takes its inspiration from John Adam's marvellous orchestral work 'Short Ride in a Fast Machine'. Starburst and Canyons follows a minimalistic blueprint with repetitive rhythmic passages from the cornets and percussion. The idea behind the piece when listening to it is if you imagine going on a flight through and around the Grand Canyon in Arizona in the dead of night in a super charged jet plane. It is full of energy and momentum, it keeps on building in tension and colour to a tub thumping dramatic ending.
