    Rondeau - Jean-Joseph Mouret - Len Jenkins

    It is quite popular to have a bright trumpet piece for the Bride and Groom to process from church following a wedding ceremony. I chose this one for my recent wedding and Len arranged it for brass quintet and organ. In many cases it is desirable to have the brilliance of brass for this type of occasion, but balance, space and budgetary considerations can make a full band too much in each of these respects. A quintet provides the best balance with the organ, can be fitted into the available space in church (or wherever the ceremony is to be held), and may be easier and more economical to organise. The music is a classical rondeau taken from the first Suite de Symphonies by the French composer Jean-Joseph Mouret, and is one of the less well known, but nevertheless brilliant piece as befits the occasion. Organ registration has not been detailed but left to the discretion of the Organist. As each organ is different it is felt that they are best placed to decide, in consultation with the leader of the brass ensemble, what stops and set-up will project the required sound and achieve the best balance.

    Handel in the Band (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - Downie, Kenneth

    Handel in the Band is a virtuoso set of symphonic variations on one of Handel’s best known keyboard dances, the Sarabande from his Suite in D minor, HWV 437, based on the Spanish traditional dance La Folia. Kenneth Downie’s work was commissioned by Brass Band Treize Etoiles, for performance at the 2013 Swiss National Brass Band Championships, where it was conducted by James Gourlay. The title is a reference to Percy Grainger’s popular Handel in the Strand, and is indicative of the witty and theatrical nature of the music, which is more playful than conventional competition pieces and as such offers different challenges to brass bands as well as being thoroughly entertaining for audiences.Kenneth Downie is one of the most respected and experienced brass band composers. His music has been widely performed and published throughout the brass band world since the 1960s.Handel in the Band has been selected as the set work for the Championship Section final of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain, which takes place at the Royal Albert Hall, London, on 6th October 2018.

    Hava Nagila (Brass Band - Score and Parts)

    Hava Nagila (the title means 'let us rejoice') is perhaps the best known example of a style of Jewish music called 'klezmer'. Klezmer music originated in the 'shtetl' (villages) and the ghettos of Eastern Europe, where itinerant Jewish troubadours, known as 'klezmorim', had performed at celebrations, particularly weddings, since the early Middle Ages.'Klezmer' is a Yiddish term combining the Hebrew words 'kley' (instrument) and 'zemer' (song) and the roots of the style are found in secular melodies, popular dances, Jewish 'hazanut' (cantorial music) and also the 'nigunim', the wordless melodies intoned by the 'Hasidim' (orthodox Jews).Since the 16th century, lyrics had been added to klezmer music, due to the 'badkhn' (the master of ceremony at weddings), to the 'Purimshpil' (the play of Esther at Purim) and to traditions of the Yiddish theatre, but the term gradually became synonymous with instrumental music, particularly featuring the violin and clarinet. The melody of Hava Nagila was adapted from a folk dance from the Romanian district of Bucovina. The commonly used text is taken from Psalm 118 of the Hebrew bible. 03:00
