    Joy to the World

    Music for Brass Band Duration: 3:00 MinutesPercussion: 5 PlayersTimpani, Suspended Cymbal, Snare Drum, Tubular Bells and GlockenspielAll Rights ReservedProgramme Notes"Joy to the World" is a popular Christmas Carol with words by Isaac Watts. As of the late 20th century, "Joy to the World" was the most published Christmas hymn in North America. The words of the hymn are by the English writer Watts are based on Psalm 98, 96:11-12 and Genesis 3: 17-18. The version of this carol usually heard today is from an edition by Lowell Mason and is named “Antioch” and attributed as "arranged by Handel”. This tune has the first four notes in common with the chorus “Lift up your heads” from the Messiah and the third line recalls “Comfort ye” from the same work. But this resemblance is often dismissed as a chance resemblance by Handel scholars today. Another theory is its similarity to a tune called “Comfort” and associated with Charles Wesley’s hymn “O Joyful Sound”, which was written some three years earlier than Lowell Mason’s “Antioch” in 1833. This carol has been recorded by many artists such as Andy Williams, The Supremes, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Johnny Cash, Nat King Cole, Perry Como, Vic Damone and Mariah Carey.

    Let Freedom Ring - Jonathan Bates

    Martin Luther King Jr. is remembered as one of the most influential and inspirational African-American leaders in history. Through his activism and inspirational speeches, he played a pivotal role in ending legal segregation, and received the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition.In 1968, at only 39 years of age, Martin Luther King Jr. was tragically assassinated following a speech at the Mason Temple in Memphis. His life and work have been honoured with a national holiday, and through this work the composer pays musical tribute to the visionary leader who had a seismic impact on race relations throughout the United States."Let Freedom Ring" are words spoken by Martin Luther King Jr. during his famous "I Have a Dream" speech, and are the inspiration behind this work, commissioned by David Childs especially for Paul Richards and the Flowers Band, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's death.The world premiere, given by Paul Richards and Flowers under the baton of David Childs, formed part of Flowers Band's winning performance at 2018 Butlin's Mineworkers Championships, where Paul Richards also won the soloist prize.Let Freedom Ring can be heard on the 2018 CD release, Celebrate - 50 years of Flowers.
