    Land of the Living Skies - Peter Meechan

    From the composer:a??Commissioned by tuba virtuoso Patrick Sheridan, Land of the Living Skies is inspired by the love of photography shared by both Patrick and I.After moving from the UK to Saskatchewan, Canada, there were many changes, but perhaps the most striking of all were the skyscapes that my new home produced; stunning sunsets, incredible views of the Milky Way, amazing moonlit landscapes, and - of course - the Northern Lights.This piece was the last I wrote before moving away from Saskatchewan and. given that the Province calls itself the a??Land of the Living Skiesa?, it seemed only fitting to name the work after its amazing skies that had provided a lifetimea??s worth of inspiration.The piece is dedicated to Patrick Sheridan, an amazing tubist, musician, educator and friend.a?Pete Meechan, January 2018

    Toccata from Suite Gothique - Leon Boellmann - Rita Arendz

    Composed in 1895, the Toccata from Suite Gothique, Op. 25, is the most recognized and popular of L?on Bo?llmann's works. It is a staple of the organ repertoire. Since 1970 when Eric Ball transcribed it for brass band, it has maintained its popularity among brass players.The Toccata is a true perpetuum mobile exhibiting the remarkable sonorities of the Post-Romantic era. The form displays various capabilities of the French organ - registration (the combination of stops), the Grand Orgue, Positif and R?cit manuals, and the pedals - creating energy and excitement.Couple the organ with a brass band - the result is a greater range of mood and versatility of sound, providing new opportunities both to play and to hear.This setting's first performance was on 3 July 2017 at St Matthew's United Church, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, with Wayne Rogers as organist (Minister of Music, St Matthew's) under the baton of David Childs (Associate Conductor, North American Brass Band Summer School).

    CANADIAN, The (Brass Band Set) - James Merritt

    The centrepiece of this decidedly patriotic and stately march is the Canadian anthem 'O Canada' although the original score (1932) refers to a different set of words ('O Canaan'). The anthem is presented in successively more ornate fashion in the trio section, the musical drama building like a Sousa march so that a da capo is not required. While now considered to be bit of a 'war horse', the march remains great fun to play.

    PRAISE TO THE LORD (Brass Band Set) - Andrew Mackereth

    Written for the 2003 tour of Canada and USA by Bristol Easton Band of The Salvation Army, this set of variations provides the whole band with a stern examination of technical and musical aptitude, whilst engaging the listener from beginning to end. The commission given to the composer was to create a set of variations with a similar framework to that of Edward Gregson's 'Variations on Laudate Dominum'. As in the famous Gregson work, the theme (Lobe den Herren) is not heard in its entirety until the final section when the majestic tune provides a fitting and stirring conclusion to the music.
