    TORCHBEARER Symphonic Variations on a Theme by Eric Ball (Brass Band Extra Score) - Graham, Peter

    2015 National Championships Regionals - Championship Section. The variations are based upon the first phrase of the trio from Eric Ball's Salvation Army march, Torchbearers. After opening statements of the theme, variation 1 (an energetic allegro brillante utilising fragment A) commences. Cadenza passages for Eb Bass and Euphonium lead to variation 2 (an andante appassionato based upon fragment B) Variation 3 (a vivace featuring C as an ostinato) is followed by variation 4 (the central andante e sciolto molto for solo cornet). The work culminates in a reprise of the cornet solo, now fully metamorphosised and mirroring in music a concept at the centre of Ball's broader philosophy, that of transformation. Eric Ball will be remembered as a composer whose classic works for brass shine through with integrity and sincerity. There has been no less sincere in the composers' efforts to pay musical tribute to the 20th century's most influential composer of brass band music. Duration: 12:30

    Calon Lan - Eric Ball

    Eric Ball originally made this duet arrangement with piano accompaniment for inclusion in our album Czardas (order code 0078) and it was later transcribed for brass band by Eric Wilson (who was named after the composer!). The Welsh tune is handled in turn by the duettists, one embellishing while the other carries the melody. The accompaniment parts are not difficult making this delightful, somewhat nostalgic, piece ideal for bands of all abilities.

    17. March - Amsterdam Congress (Charles Skinner)This march was written for the Dutch Annual Bandsman's Congress, and is based on the theme well known on the continent as well as in this country, God is love. Published in 1951, it is melodic throughout and easy to play. 18. Meditation - Thine Alone (Charles Skinner)The expressive tune Misericordia is used for this meditation first published in 1959. It represents the sentiments of four verses of Frances Ridley Havergal's classic hymn, as follows, Just as I am, without one plea; Just as I am, and waiting not; Just as I am, though tossed about, and the final verse of surrender: Just as I am, thy love unknownHas broken every barrier down, Now to be thine, yea, thine alone,O Lamb of God, I come! 19. Love Divine - Ave Verum (arr. Albert Jakeway)A band arrangement of Mozart's beautiful Ave Verum set to the well-known verses, Love divine, all loves excelling. This setting was originally published in 1945. 20. Meditation - Hold thou my hand (Eric Ball)This piece, published in 1941, is suitable for use in devotional meetings, quite easy to play - although giving scope for very expressive treatment. The song which is the basis of the meditation is one of trust in our Lord's presence in all circumstances. The words of the first verse are:Hold thou my hand! so weak am I and helpless,I dare not take one step without thy aid;Hold thou my hand! for then, O loving Saviour,No dread of ill shall make my soul afraid.
