    Trailblazers (Brass Band - Score only) - Mackereth, Andrew

    This overture draws its inspiration from the story of the first Household Troops Band. It tells the story of the 1887 band, the subsequent lull of nearly a hundred years and the re-awakening of the Troops phenomenon in 1985. It was originally written in 1995 and featured prominently by the band on its North American tour of 2002. Given the history of the Household Troops Band, it is fitting that this composition is preoccupied with marching. It begins with a marching song played by a solitary muted cornet, symbolic not only of the call to bandsmen to join the evangelical effort but also a muso-dramatic device to indicate the steady increase in members and technical ability! The music quickly develops into stirring versions of 'A robe of white' and 'Storm the forts of darkness' with two early day Salvation Army tunes crucially adding to the narrative; 'Marching on in the light of God' and 'Soldiers of our God, arise!' The second section is a reflective setting of the Herbert Booth song, 'The penitent's plea'. This song serves to represent the many people who were 'saved' during those early day campaigns. The expressive music transports the listener through a period of uncertainty and angst until finally reaching the song, 'There is a message, a simple message, and it's a message for us all'. The final section deals first with the emergence from the annals of history with the muted cornet figure again before, symbolically, the present day band bursts forth with an emphatic statement of 'Would you be free from your burden of sin? There's power in the blood'. The stirring climax represents a fitting tribute to those gallant pioneering musicians and their equally impressive and dedicated contemporaries.

    The Ukrainian Bell Carol is part of a large choral work entitled Shchedryk by the Ukrainian composer Mykola Dmytrovich Leontovych (1877-1921).

The tune has since been the inspiration for at least four different Christmas carols, of which Carol of the Bells is the most famous. Philip Sparke has sourced the original Ukrainian melody to create this stirring arrangement. 03:00

    Winter Wonderland (Brass Band - Score and Parts)

    This enduringly popular seasonal song has long been a Christmas favourite, even though the lyrics don't mention 'Christmas' at all. The words were by Dick Smith (1901-1935) and the music by Felix Bernard (1897-1944). The inspiration was reportedly a visit by Smith to Honesdale's (his hometown) Central Park when it was covered in snow. The first recording was made by Richard Himber's Ritz-Carlton Orchestra in 1934. The same year Guy Lombardo and his band, The Royal Canadians, took the song to number 2 in the US Billboard Chart, where it stayed for 9 weeks. It has since been recorded by over 150 artists, the most successful versions being by Perry Como and the Andrews Sisters, both released in 1946.

    March Slav - Piotr Tchaikovsky - Phillip Littlemore

    March Slav was composed in 1876 at the request of Nicolai Rubenstein (who had recently spurned Tchaikovsky’s first piano concerto, and might have wanted to return to favour with the composer). Tchaikovsky loved Russian folk music—looking to it for inspiration throughout his career—and he makes considerable use of it here. From the opening theme to the final glorious statement of the Czarist national anthem, the march draws on the music of his motherland. It was first performed in a charity concert to support a war effort in the Balkans. He composed and fully scored the march in the short time of just 5 days. At the first performance its impact was such that it had to be encored in full, receiving a tumultuous reception – twice! Item Code: TPBB-009 Duration: c.7'20"

    All in the April Evening - Hugh S. Roberton - Len Jenkins

    All In the April Evening is a traditional classic hymn suitable for all Christian denominations. The music was composed by Sir Hugh S. Roberton who founded the Glasgow Orpheus Choir, and the definitive arrangement for brass band was later created by Eric Ball. This arrangement takes its inspiration from and pays homage to that work.Despite there being many different arrangements for a variety of voices and instrument numbers, the small brass group has been sadly neglected. This arrangement seeks to rectify that omission.The music is arranged for Brass Quintet with optional Glockenspiel and is printed in two formats, to be equally useful for indoor concerts and outdoor events or parades.
