    13.7 Billion Years Earlier - James McFadyen

    Brass band sheet music by James McFadyen. Listen to the glorious sound of the Central Ohio Brass Band perform this grand and magical fanfare. Described as a fanfare tone poem, 13.7 Billion Years Earlier tells the story of the beginning of our universe, the big bang. Based around the note of concert Db, this is poetic brass band music with flowing melodic lines and deep evocative harmonies, gradually building to glorious and magical ending. Since the conception of this music, the most recent accurate measurement of the universe is now 13.8 billion years old.What is the Big Bang?The Big Bang is the leading theory of how our universe came to be. All of space, time and matter in our universe was created at that moment. Everything you see around you comes from that moment 13.8 billion years ago. The term "big bang" was coined by Fred Hoyle (1915-2001), a British astronomer who supported the opposing theory of the time - Steady State Theory.At the heart of the Big Bang theory is Inflation, as developed by Alun Guth (b.1947).Over the years, the evidence to support the Big Bang theory mounted up, and has been so consistent with the model that to argue against the big bang would require a substantial amount of opposing evidence not yet observed.Evidence to support the Big Bang theory includes (amongst others) pigeon droppings at the big ear telescope in Ohio (USA), WMAP image of the universe and the discovery of redshift demonstrating the expanding universe.More Space Brass Band Sheet Music2019 marks 50 years of the first moon landing.

    The "Wow!" Signal - James McFadyen

    On 15th August 1977, a signal was discovered by the Big Ear telescope in Ohio. The signal was recorded whilst the researchers were asleep, but once they looked at the data, they circled the hallmark of the signal and penned "wow!" next to it.The theory is that this could have been a signal from an interstellar intelligent spaceship, which was picked up from the constellation of Sagittarius. Unfortunately the signal has never been found again, and the jury is still out as to what the signal was.James McFadyen's fast-slow-fast composition is a homage to this event, and is the perfect classical rock piece to showcase your band. There are lots of epic moments and interesting interplay of rhythm between different instrumental parts.

    ...and the winter moon rises

    …and the winter moon riseswas inspired by a winter's evening car journey across the Pennines from Manchester to Huddersfield, through the brass band heartland of Saddleworth. There was recent snow on the ground, and the sun had just set. A bright clear moon was rising into a sky coloured with orange from the setting sun, and the moonlight made all the snow and ice sparkle.The work is the fourth movement of a larger 5 movement suite entitled "North!", but can be (and has been) performed in isolation. This work was a finalist in the 2012 Ohio Brass Arts Festival composition competition.

    FAITH IS THE VICTORY (Brass Band Set) - James Curnow

    James Curnow wrote this march while completing his Masters degree at Michigan State University and unsurprisingly reflects the great tradition of American symphonic wind band marches. Curnow embraces the sound world of the great Mid-Western universities (Michigan, Illinois, Iowa and Ohio State) and the march styles of Eric Osterling and Clifton Williams. Several changes of tempo indicate that this is anything but an ordinary street march. The wonderful changes of key are also notable and propel the music towards an exciting finish.

    Auld Lang Syne (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - Wilkinson, Keith M.

    It is a tradition in most English-speaking countries to sing this song at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve to usher in the New Year. The words are at least partially written by Robert Burns and the words "Auld Lang Syne" literally mean "old long ago" or "the good old days", providing a moment of reflection before moving forwards into the New Year.The tubular bells, although pitched, sound midnight when they enter at bar 10.This arrangement was prepared for Brass Band of the Western Reserve, musical director Keith M Wilkinson, to perform at First Night, Akron, Ohio, December 31st, 2007. The following choreography is suggested:Commence the performance with all the cornets scattered around the auditorium.At the end of bar 18 invite the audience to sing along with the band.At bar 27 the cornets move to stand in front of the other members of the band to lead to the stirring conclusion. Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind?Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days of auld lang syne?For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne,We'll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne.
