    A Redbridge Raga

    Put simply, a ‘Raga’ is a scale used in Indian music, but aside from being a series of ascending and descending notes, ragas are also associated with different moods and with particular times of the day or year. A Redbridge Raga is influenced by the use of the ‘Raga Bhairav’ (a morning raga) which is clearly outlined in the mysterious opening of the piece. The following section is much more lively, incoprorating elements of Bhangra (a musical style emanating from the fusion of Indian folk music with British pop culture). The title reflects the location of the first performance that took place at Redbridge Town Hall, East London.Duration: 5:30 minutesPercussion: 3 players playing drum kit, mark tree, suspended cymbal, shaker, tambourine and dhol drum. Grade 3: Medium 1st and 2nd Section Bands

    English Dances, Set 1, Op. 27: No. 1 - Sir Malcolm Arnold - Ray Farr

    English Dances, Set I, opus 27, is a light classic composition that was written for orchestra by the British composer Malcolm Arnold in 1950. The set contains four dances that continue without pause: the individual movements are indicated by the tempo markings. The work came about at the request of Bernard de Nevers, at the time the head of publisher Alfred Lengnick & Co., who asked Arnold to write a suite of dances as an English counterpart to Dvorak's Slavonic Dances and Bartok's Romanian Folk Dances. The premiere took place in the spring of 1951, played by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sir Adrian Boult. Following the success of the first set, De Nevers asked the composer to write a second one, which Arnold completed the next year (Op. 33). The Andantino from the first set has been skilfully arranged and orchestrated for brass band by Ray Farr.

    Brass Triumphant - Gareth Wood

    Brass Triumphant is a four-movement work and was composed for the Cory Band during their 125th anniversary year of 2009.The first movement is a celebratory fanfare featuring a strong melody as the thread which runs throughout the whole work. The second movement is powerful in nature and reflects struggle and endeavour. The third movement is a beautiful slow melodic poem subtitled Mist of the Forest. A melody carried by the euphonium honours the great Welsh folk melodies we all know and love. The lollipop finale is a rollercoaster ride, taking us to the very edge of band technique. The hymn tune O Iesu Mawr appears though heavily disguised and is a reminder of the composer's Welsh Heritage.The Cory Band under Dr. Robert Childs gave the World premiere of this work during the World Music Contest Gala Concert in Kerkrade, Netherlands July 2009. It later received its British premiere during September of the same year in Birmingham's Symphony Hall, again performed by the Cory Band under the direction of Robert Childs.

    Men of Harlech - Welsh Traditional - Gareth Wood

    Men of Harlech is a song and military march which describes events during the seven year long siege of Harlech Castle between 1461 and 1468. Commanded by Constable Dafydd ap Ieuan, the garrison held out in what is the longest known siege in the history of the British Isles.The music was first published without words in 1794 as Gorhoffedd Gw?r Harlech (March of the Men of Harlech) in the second edition of The Musical and Poetical Relicks of the Welsh Bards, but it is said to be a much earlier folk air.Men of Harlech occupies an important place in Welsh national culture and gained international recognition when it was featured prominently in the 1964 film Zulu.This new arrangement comes from the pen of Welshman Gareth Wood. It cleverly fuses the tune to more exotic rhythms associated with Latin America and the Caribbean.
