    Prelude on an Irish Folk Tune (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - Sparke, Philip

    The Irish folk tune, which appears towards the end of the piece, is Slane, a hymn tune version of the much older folk melody The Banks of the Bann. In Prelude on an Irish Folk Tune, fragments of the folk tune hint at what is to come later in the piece, but another folk-like tune is predominant. This later acts as a descant to Slane when it finally appears. Add a little Sparke sparkle to any concert with this lovely interlude. 04:00

    Idyll on an Irish Folk Hymn - Ralph E. Pearce

    Idyll on an Irish Folk Hymn was originally written for a concert of Irish music given by the Phoenix-based Salt River Brass. It was made at the request of a close friend of the composer, whose favourite melody this is. I was impressed by the treatment given to this beautiful tune, and when appearing as guest soloist with Salt River Brass, I asked Ralph to rearrange his setting as a cornet solo.Although the origin of the tune is not known, it is most often associated with hymn Lord of all hopefulness, with words by Jan Struther (1901-1953). It is quite often sung at wedding services, immediately after the signing of the register. It speaks of the desire that God goes with the couple into the future, helping them to fulfil their vows.

    Irish Mood - Stijn Roels

    Irish Mood was written in a classic 'theme and variations' construction, opening with an Irish-inspired melodic theme, which is then followed by four variations of divergent character. After the introduction of the theme by the soloist, the cornets and trombones play the main melody in Variation 1, while the soloist provides a flowing counter melody. Next comes the highly extrovert and lively Variation 2, contrasted by an introverted Variation 3 in a minor key. A masterful tutti (Variation 4) then leads the piece toward a brilliant ending.

    Echoes - Andrew Stevenson

    Echoes is an original light concert item based on the style of an Irish Air. The core of the piece is a melody which is first heard in the euphonium and then moves onto cornet and then later becomes a tutti passage. As well as this melody, there are also moments in the piece where some motifs are heard in counterpoint; this is where the title Echoes comes from. These counterpoint ideas symbolise the motivic sounds bouncing around a chasm and echoing back.The music gives lots of chances for bands to show off their sound as well as the principle players in their solos. There is also a wide scope of opportunities for conductors to insert their own musicality into the music to bring out emotion and drama. Echoes is a very simple and effective piece, it is also extremely catchy and easy to listen to.

    The Meeting of the Waters - Ralph E. Pearce

    The Meeting of the Waters is a traditional Irish toasting song, which tells of the meeting of the two drinks as the toast is carried out. Ralph E. Pearce has skilfully adapted this beautiful and somewhat sentimental melody as a cornet solo. It is not a direct arrangement of the song, but rather a rhapsody that uses the tune as a basis for the basis of the work. After an introduction, the melody is presented twice, linked by a ruminative central section. This solo is also available with piano accompaniment as part of the Roger Webster Solo Series.

    Neath the Dublin Skies - Paul Lovatt-Cooper

    'Neath the Dublin Skies was written for David Childs and first performed by him with Cory Band during their tour of Ireland in September 2007. The music is certainly Irish in nature featuring an atmospheric introduction, ornamented reel, lyrical melody and a high-spirited jig. With multi-phonics and lip glissandi amongst the challenges set for the soloist, the music is a lot of fun to perform and a welcome addition to the euphonium solo repertoire. 'Neath the Dublin Skies can be heard on the CD Celtic Charm (DOYCD214) on which the performers are David Childs and Cory Band.
