    Revelation - Score and Parts - Philip Wilby

    Symphony for Double Brass on a theme of Purcell 1995 marked the tercentenary of Purcell’s death, and my new score Revelation has been written as a tribute to his music and the ornate and confident spirit of his age. There are five major sections: 1 Prologue 2 Variations on a ground bass I 3 Fugue 4 Variations on a ground bass II 5 Epilogue and Resurrection The score uses many features of the Baroque Concerto Grosso, and arranges players in two equal groups from which soloists emerge to play in a variety ofvirtuoso ensembles. It quotes freely from Purcell’s own piece Three Parts on a Ground in which he has composed a brilliant sequence of variations over a repeating six-note bass figure. This original motif can be heard most clearly beneath the duet for Cornet 5 and Soprano at the beginning of the 2nd section. There is, of course, a religious dimension to Revelation as the title suggests, and the score is prefaced by lines by the 17th century poet John Donne. His Holy Sonnet paraphrases the Book of Revelation in which the dead are raised at the sounds of the last trumpet. Donne’s trumpets are themselves placed stereophonically “. . . At the round Earth’s imagined corners” and it is this feature that today’s players represent as they move around the performing area. Their final apocalyptic fanfares can be heard at the close of the score, as Purcell’s music re-enters in a lasting tribute to England’s first composer of genius. Philip Wilby September 1995 At the round Earth imagined corners, blow your trumpets, angels, and arise, arise from death, you numberless infinities Of souls, and to your scattered bodies go. All whom the flood did, and fire shall o ‘erthrow All whom war, dearth, age, agues, tyrannies, Despair, law, chance hath slain, and you whose eyes Shall Behold God, and never taste death woe. John Donne after Revelation Ch. 11 v.15

    Humming Chorus - Giacomo Puccini - Phillip Littlemore

    In Puccini's opera, Madam Butterfly , the Coro a bocca chiusa ( Humming Chorus ) is performed by an off-stage chorus which hums a wordless, melancholy tune, whilst Butterfly, her maid Suzuki, and her child begin the long wait for husband Pinkerton to return after many years away. As night falls, Suzuki and the child are soon asleep, but Butterfly keeps her vigil. This arrangement features four flugel horns, each of which plays into the bell of a bass whilst the bass player moves the valves - creating a unique humming sound. Puccini actually wrote five versions of the opera, Madam Butterfly . After a disastrous premiere in early 1904, Puccini withdrew the opera and substantially rewrote it creating a very successful second version. However, he continued to tinker with the orchestration, not being satisfied until the fifth, and now standard, version dating from 1907. Item Code: TPBB-007 Duration: c.2'40"

    Tranquil Seas - Dan Price

    Tranquil Seas - Suite for Brass Band and Percussion, takes its inspiration from the evocative titles given to the various areas of the Moon's surface.Maria (or Mare) are the large plains on the moon's surface which were created by ancient volcanic eruptions. They are less reflective than the higher ground on the surface and therefore have a darker, blue-ish appearance when viewed from earth with the naked eye. Early astronomers mistook this change in colour as actual water and therefore named them seas.I Sea of Clouds - Mare NubiumThe first movement takes the form of a fanfare and theme and opens full gusto at double fortissimo with a rich descending bass line, fast paced ostinati in solo cornets accompanying a slow paced fanfare from back row cornets, horns and trombones.II Sea of Tranquility - Mare TranquillitatisThis is a slow, peaceful movement in binary form. The first section offers a sense of space and weightlessness through gently ebbing accompaniment and features solos for flugelhorn and euphonium. Percussion and muted trombones introduce a rhythmic pulse to the second section which underpins the remainder of the ensemble scored in block harmony. This interplay between polyphonic and homophonic writing gives the effect of the slowly revolving moon.III Sea of Serenity - Mare SerenitatisThe movement starts with the back drop of gently overlapping ostinati in tuned percussion and a sustained pedal point in horns. Low brass introduce the main theme to which other members of the ensemble join as the movement develops. A second theme is introduced which is more rhythmic in nature and contains a combination of homophonic writing set against a strong, dance-like ostinato (written compound time against single time) which gives the movement a sense of movement. This part of the music expresses the relationship of the moon and the earth, constantly revolving in their eternal dance against the back drop of space. Despite the amount of rhythmic content in this movement the pulse remains slow and there is a lack of urgency in the music so that the calmness and euphoria have an almost hypnotic effect.IV Sea of Dreams - Mare DesideriiThe finale of Tranquil Seas is written in the form of a toccata, opening with a thinly scored pianissimo. The characteristic arpeggio line of the toccata is initially scored on solo cornet and as the movement develops this motif is passed to almost all the family groups in the ensemble. The rich sweeping melody line also associated with this form is featured characteristically on the low brass. This high-octaine final movement brings the complete suite to a dramatic conclusion.This is challenging and demanding music that is also rewarding for both performer and listener. All of the movements work well as individual items if the complete suite is to long for your program.

    The Golden Apples of the Sun - Rodney Newton

    This work was commissioned in 2012 by the percussionist, Yasuaki Fukuhara, and takes its title from the final verse of W.B.Yeats' poem, The Song of Wandering Aengus;Though I am old with wandering,Through hollow lands and hilly lands,I will find out where she has gone,And kiss her lips and take her hands;And walk among long dappled grass,And pluck till time and times are done,The silver apples of the moon,The golden apples of the sun.This piece does not seek to follow the narrative of the poem, but rather takes lines from it as an inspiration for three contrasting movements.The first movement, Through Hollow Lands and Hilly Lands, is in the form of a dogged march over a repeated bass line, featuring tom-toms, snare drum and cymbals playing rhythms associated with rock drumming. At the end of the movement, the marimba enters with material that will be heard in the next movement.The second movement, The Silver Apples of the Moon, features vibraphone, glockenspiel and crotales, as well as the dobachi (a resonant bronze bowl of Japanese origin). The music is delicate and ethereal.In contrast, the final movement, The Golden Apples of the Sun, is energetic and fiery, featuring tubular bells, timpani and other tuned percussion instruments including cowbells.
