    Cloud Rider - Dan Price

    Brass Band Solo Series - Grade 5 (Soloist 6) A virtuosic tenor trombone solo by Dan Price. Commissioned in 2015 by trombone virtuoso Brett Baker, Cloud Rider takes inspiration from Norse mythology and the legend of the Valkyries. The Valkyries are a host of female figures who ride great steeds and hover over the battle field, deciding which warriors will live and which will die. Once the battle is over the Valkyries collect the dead soldiers and carry them back to the afterlife, to the realm of Asgard, laying them at the feet of Odin in his great "Hall of the Slain", Valhalla. Duration: 00:05:00

    The Sword and the Star

    The Sword and the Star was written in 2006 for the Middleton Band at the request of their Musical Director, Carl Whiteoak. The inspiration for the work was the band's badge, which features a medieval archer. The town of Middeton's historical link with the symbol of the Archer came from the English victory at the Battle of Flodden in September 1513, where bowmen from Middleton and Heywood under the command of Sir Richard Assheton played a vital part in crushing the invading Scottish army. Sir Richard captured one of the Scottish commanders and presented the prisoner's sword to the St Leonard's church in Middleton in recognition of the town's contribution. As long time Lords of the Manor, the Assheton family crest was for centuries featured in the coat of arms of Middleton council, and when Middleton became part of the Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale the black star from the Assheton crest was used to represent Middleton in the new borough's coat of arms. Hence the title The Sword and the Star, for a piece which attempts to give an impression of the town as it was then and as it is now.The music is in three short sections – a fanfare, a lament and a bright scherzo – and simply aims to contrast the medieval hamlet of Middleton with the bustling urban centre it has now become. The central lament features a Scottish song called "The Flowers of the Forest", written to mourn the loss of so many of Scotland's young men on the field of Flodden; the song returns in a much more positive form at the end of the piece.To view a PDF preview of the score please click here, and to hear a preview of the opening played by Middleton Band click here.

    Radetzky March - Johann Strauss I

    First performed in Vienna on the 31st August 1848, the Radetzky March is one of Strauss’ most enduring pieces. It was commissioned to celebrate the Austrian Empire’s victory over Sardinia at the Battle of Custoza earlier that year, and was named for and dedicated to the Austrian commander, Field Marshal Joseph Radetzky von Radetz.When it was first played in front of Austrian officers, they spontaneously clapped and stamped their feet when they heard the trio; a tradition that continues to this day with audiences. It is traditionally played as the last piece at the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra’s New Year's Concerts.

    Over the Stone (Tros y Garreg) - Welsh Traditional

    Over the Stone is a traditional Welsh tune: Tros y Garreg. It is not known when it was written, but the sentiment of the tune is attributed to Rhys Bodychen, who led a troop of Welsh forces at the Battle of Bosworth Field where Richard III was defeated by Henry Tudor in 1485.This skilful arrangement for solo euphonium and brass band by Welshman Tony Small was made for David Childs and it can be heard on the CD Celtic Charm (DOYCD214) on which the performers are David Childs and the Cory Band.
