    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.

    Cambridgeshire Impressions - Rieks van der Velde

    In a four-part composition Rieks van der Velde takes us to the richly varied area surrounding the university city of Cambridge. The Dutch composer was especially inspired by the atmosphere of Cambridgeshire, the county which lies north ofLondon. 1. The Journey. Although on arrival the area looks peaceful and friendly, the ruggedness of its inhabitants and landscape have an unmistakable influence on the music. In the course of the tour, which starts with an Allegromovement, we are shown the vitality, energy and freshness of the Cambridgeshire countryside. Short themes, swift and sudden motifs and rhythmical patterns supported by the drive of percussion instruments give expression to this image. Thefirst part is concluded by two Calmo movements in which the music expresses how the cathedral in the city of Ely comes into sight and is gradually approached. 2. Visit to Ely Cathedral. The famous Norman cathedral church of Ely, whichwas built in 1109, has attracted tourists from all over the world apart from being a place of worship and heritage site. A cornet solo introduces the contemplative mood of the composition at this point. The mystical atmosphere of thecathedral runs through this lyrical part like a continuous thread. 3. The Pub. The thirst caused by this intensive journey makes a visit to the local pub a definite must. These "public houses", which may be open until the earlyhours of the morning, offer all kinds of entertainment. Drinks are served liberally and the atmosphere is lively. 4. The Journey Back. Time has flown: In other words, the moment of departure has come sooner than one would havewished. In a flashback which recaptures elements of the first part of the composition we say goodbye to Cambridgeshire in a fitting manner. Two scintillating final measures bring us abruptly back to the present.
