    Mythical Tales (Brass Quintet) - Bond, ChristopherEnsemble Size:

    Mythical Tales (2012) is a ten minute work in three movements which represents three of the most popular folk stories or indeed in the case of the first movement, true stories, in Welsh culture.I. Owain GlyndwrOwain Glyn Dwr was born around the 1350s into an Anglo-Welsh gentry family. His estates provided him with a modest power base in north-east Wales. After a number of disputes, he proclaimed himself prince of Wales in September 1400.Glyn Dwr led several battles with the English, although he was never captured. Over the next few years punitive measures were enacted to keep control of Wales, but these were matched by many acts of Welsh rebellion - among them the capture of Conwy Castle in April 1401. In June 1402, at the Battle of Pilleth on Bryn Glas Hill, Glyn Dwr led his troops to victory over an English army. By now Glyn Dwr was leading a national revolt. In 1404, he led a march towards Wocester, but failed, with the English capturing parts of Wales. He died defending his country.II. MyfanwyMyfanwy was the most beautiful woman in Powys, but she was vain and liked nothing better than to be told how beautiful she was. Many handsome men would court her, but she would not show interest because they couldn’t sing and play to her, reflecting her true beauty.Luckily, a penniless bard, Hywel ap Einion was in love with Myfanwy, and one day plucked up the courage to climb up the hill to the castle with his harp, to sing and play to her. He’s allowed in to play for her, and while he’s playing and complimenting her on her beauty she can neither listen nor look at any other man. Because of this Hywel believes that she has fallen in love with him. But his hopes are dashed when a richer, more handsome and more eloquent lover comes along. The music of the second movement portrays the despair and upset that Hywel must have felt.III. Battle of the DragonsMany centuries ago when dragons roamed the land, a white ice dragon descended on a small village and decided to live there, not knowing that a red fire dragon was already living nearby.Six months later the red dragon awoke to find a huge white dragon wrapped around his village that he cared for. He could tell that his people were ill from the cold. The Land was bare; nothing was able to grow not even the pesky dandelions. The people were starving. The people longed for the red dragon to free them from the icy misery, so that their life and land could return to the sunny and warm climate that it was once before.The red fire dragon challenged the white ice dragon to a single combat fight at the top of the cliff the next day. The people of the village watched in terror awaiting their fate. The red dragon beat the white dragon, and the crowd cheered with joy as the red dragon roared with triumph. The mayor of the village declared that the land should always fly a flag with the symbol of a Red dragon on it. The flag's background should be half green and half white; the green to represent the lush green grass of the land and the white to represent the ice. This way no one would ever forget what happened.

    Silent Night

    One of the most well-known and loved Christmas carols, Silent Night is a carol everyone knows. In this brass band arrangement, audiences will love the warm chords and gorgeous styling of this brass band music.Composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber, Silent NIght has been recorded and sung by many singers and music groups, including the popular Bing Crosby version in 1935 and the 1990 version by Sinead O'Connor.Stille Nacht (Silent Night) was first performed in 1818 at a church in the Austrian town of Oberndorf on Christmas Eve. The words to Silent Night had been written as a poem in 1816 by Father Joseph Mohr. On the Christmas Eve of 1818, Mohr showed his poem to Gruber, who asked him to compose a melody for it for that night's mass. The church in which they were in was evetually destroyed by continual flooding and the new chapel was named after the carol (Silent Night Chapel).Sadly, the original manuscript has been lost over the years, so Mohr's contribution was largely forgotten about. Indeed, many thought that Beethoven, Haydn or Mozart had a hand in it. However, a manuscript tuned up in 1995 that showed Mohr's handwriting, which was dated circa 1820. It stated the true author of the words to be Mohr. Silent Night remains one of the most popular carols every written and has been translated into over 300 languages and featured as the subject of many films. It has been arranged many times and was even sung on the battlefield during World War 1 during the CHristmas truce.

    XMAZZ! - Lennox Rhodes - Len Jenkins

    You have to admit it, but standing there in the cold outside a supermarket at Christmas, playing to raise funds for your band or local charity, you could sometimes do with something to liven things up. Well here's a piece to get feet tapping (but please don't do that when playing on stage - leave that to the audience!). Comprising a medley of well-known and loved carols and festive pieces, the pace will keep you warm and make a welcome break from traditional carol tempos without losing the Christmas spirit. Hic! For practical reasons, XMAZZ! can easily be split into two parts with a mid-point where you can stop (or start) according to choice or demands of the occasion. Graham

    Concerto for Euphonium - Kenneth Downie

    An accessible and enjoyable showpiece for soloists of all ages. The concerto's three movements are in a tuneful, melodic style and bravura passages are mixed with others designed to exploit the singing qualities of the instrument. The first movement is a vigorous allegro in which the short, pithy motifs of the opening theme contrast with the broad sweep of the second subject. A short cadenza-like passage yields to a high-spirited episode before a reprise of the opening ends the movement quietly. The second movement opens with a warm, romantic melody which is soon taken up by the soloist. A short animated section gives way to the earlier tutti theme, this time with passionate decoration from the soloist before the music gently unwinds in a tranquil coda. The finale has a bouncy, festive feel. After the first subject runs its course there is a brief journey through a more contrapuntal style, before a spirited presto moves into a compound episode before returning to the opening idea. A jubilant coda brings the work to a conclusion.
