    SEA PICTURES (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - Sparke, Philip

    An atmospheric and descriptive work, Sea Pictures is in three sections. The quiet but very difficult opening describes the sea at dawn when all is still save for the cries of the early-morning gulls and deep movements of the sea itself. The sun rises and the next section pictures it glistening and sparkling on the waves. A school of playful dolphins passes. As they swim into the distance we are alone again with the sun and the waves. But there are distant rumblings; from far away a storm approaches. Cool breezes disturb the surface of the sea as it clouds over. And then the storm is upon us, turning the sea into the most awful force in all nature. Then, as suddenly as it had begun, it abates, leaving the sea once again serene in sunlight. All is calm but, as the work fades to a close, distant claps of thunder remind us that we are always at the mercy of the power and ficklesness of nature. Championship section. Duration 20:13

    For Those in Peril on the Sea

    NEW FOR JUNE 2021For Those in Peril on the Sea is a British hymn also entilted Eternal Father, Strong to Save. It is commonly associated with martitime armed services and seafarers. It was written in 1860 by William Whiting, an Anglican churchman from Winchester, who was inspired by Psalm 107, which is a thanksgiving song to God and describes the dangers of the sea. He was brought up near the coast and at the age of 35, was nearly killed when the ship he was aboard nearly sank in a terrible storm, but he was spared.Both the British Royal Navy and the US Navy made the song popular by adopting it in the later part of the 19th century. It has also been adapted by such services as the British Army, Royal Marines and the US Coast Guard.As well as being titled For Those In Peril On The Sea which is taken from the last line of the first verse, it is also known as The Navy Hymn, Royal Navy Hymn, Hymn of Her Majesty's Armed Forces, and the United States Navy Hymn. It was regularly sung on board a whole manner of ships during services on voyages. The hymn appears in many hymnals, on TV programmes and is often sung at funerals where the deceased has served in the Navy, most notably at the funeral of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in April 2021.

    The Power of the Megatsunami - Carl Wittrock

    The word 'tsunami' is of Japanese origin. When you look it up in a dictionary, you will find that it means 'a great sea wave produced by submarine earth movement or volcanic eruption'. A megatsunami is the superlative of this awesome expressionof power that nature can create, and has catastrophic consequences. When Carl Wittrock completed this composition not many such big earth movements had occurred, but since then we have become all too familiar with the disastrousconsequences which a tsunami may have. On the 26th of December 2004 a heavy seaquake took place near the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Tidal waves 10 meters in height ravaged the coastal regions of many countries for miles around. The tsunamitook the lives of thousands of people and destroyed many villages and towns. There are more areas which run the risk of being struck by a tsunami, such as the island of La Palma, one of the Canary Islands. This island is based on oceaniccrust at a fracture zone and as such is one of nature's time bombs. The consequences of a natural calamity like a megatsunami are immense. In the case of La Palma, the tidal wave will move in the direction of South America, where it may reach 50km inland, destroying everything on its way. In his composition Wittrock describes an ordinary day which will have an unexpected ending. Right from the beginning there seems to be something in the air, the music creating an oppressiveatmosphere of impending disaster. Themes are interrupted, broken off suddenly, followed by silence, suggesting the calm before the storm. Suddenly a short climax (glissandi in the trombone part) indicates the seaquake, and the megatsunami isa fact. Hereafter follows a turbulent passage symbolising the huge rolling waves. After nature's force has spent itself, resignation sets in and the composition ends with a majestic ode to nature.

    SEASCAPES (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - Steadman-Allen, Ray

    Seascapes was commissioned for the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain in 1988.Seascapes takes its inspiration from the poem 'Cargos' by John Masefield. In the first movement, a gentle lyric theme, set against a pulsating background is contrasted with a dance. The dance reaches its climax and the music concludes with a quiet theme. The second movement has something of the nature of a sarabande, with a central section, which is a little lighter but retains a Spanish flavour. The composer adds a whimsical thought of his own that there may also have been a party of monks aboard. A variety of ingredients blend in the third movement: the coaster engines, the sea, some jovial shanty-music and the storm element through which the coaster steadily chugs.Suitable for Championship Section bands.
