    Pomp & Circumstance March No.2 - Edward Elgar - Phillip Littlemore

    Following the spectacular success of his Pomp & Circumstance March No. 1, which received over 100 performances in its first year, it was almost inevitable that Elgar would write a second. However, what is not commonly known is that the initial sketches for what was to become the Pomp & Circumstance March No. 2 were written first! Due to the successes of the first march, not least because it now features at every Prom concert, it is forgotten that not only did Elgar submit the manuscript for both marches to his publisher at the same time, but both marches were premi?red at the same concert and both performed a few days later at the same Promenade Concert.

    Symphonic Dance No.3

    Completed in 1940, the set of? Symphonic Dances was Sergei Rachmaninov's last composition. The work is fully representative of the composer’s late style with its curious, shifting harmonies, the almost Prokofiev-like grotesquerie of the outer movements and the focus on individual instrumental tone colours throughout.? Rachmaninov composed the Symphonic Dances four years after his Third Symphony, mostly at the Honeyman Estate, ‘Orchard Point’, in Centerport, New York, overlooking Long Island Sound. The three-movement work’s original name was Fantastic Dances, with movement titles of ‘Noon’, ‘Twilight’ and ‘Midnight’. When the composer wrote to the conductor Eugene Ormandy in late August, he said that the piece was finished and needed only to be orchestrated, but the manuscript for the full score actually bears completion dates of September and October 1940. It was premiered by Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra, to whom it is dedicated, on 3rd January, 1941. This arrangement is of the last dance and is a kind of struggle between the Dies Irae theme, representing Death, and a quotation from Rachmaninov’s own Vespers (also known as the All-night Vigil, 1915), representing Resurrection. The Resurrection theme proves victorious in the end as the composer actually wrote the word ‘Hallelujah’ at the relevant place the score (one bar after Fig. 16 in this arrangement).? This arrangement can be seen being played by East London Brass, conducted by Jayne Murrill,? here .? Item Code: TPBB-040 Duration: 3'45"

    Ave Verum Corpus - W.A. Mozart - Len Jenkins

    "Ave Verum Corpus" is a short religious piece (motet) K. 618, composed by Mozart in 1791 shortly before his death, and is a setting of the 14th century Eucharistic hymn in Latin. He wrote it for a friend Anton Stoll, who was the musical coordinator in the parish of Baden bei Wien, near Vienna. Mozart composed the motet whilst in the middle of writing his opera The Magic Flute and while visiting his wife Constanze, who was pregnant with their sixth child and staying in a spa near Baden. It is only forty-six bars long and was originally scored for SATB choir, string instruments, and organ. Mozart's manuscript contains minimal directions, so we hope you will enjoy our interpretation and arrangement for brass quintet and optional Glockenspiel.

    Deep River - William Broughton

    An arrangement, in 'Count Basie' style, of the spiritual of the same name. The tempo indication on the original manuscript states "the slower the better" and therein lies probably the most difficult aspect of the piece.
