    Smoke Sketches - Daniel Hall

    Smoke Sketches is Daniel Hall’s first original work to be published in the Faber Music Brass Band Series. Daniel is one of the most gifted of the rising generation of composers writing for brass bands. Smoke Sketches was composed at the invitation of Brass Bands England for the Intermediate Section of the 2017 National Youth Brass Band Championships of Great Britain. This colourful, jazzy suite draws inspiration from the ancient art of gazing into smoke from fire to find stories through the act of divination. Into the Blaze suggests someone briskly fire-walking, barefoot, with unexpected sparks fizzling from the ground. A Lonesome Ember captures the fleeting life of a small ember, beginning insignificantly and gradually evolving into a larger being before disappearing into ash, while Spark of Light bristles with life and energy. Band Grade 3/4, duration 8 minutes.

    O Salutaris Hostia - Eriks Esenvalds

    O Salutaris Hostia is one of ?'riks Ešenvalds’ most popular pieces. Originally written for female voices, the composer later created a version for full choir on which this arrangement is based. It has a gentle meditation with the two soloists drifting across the soft band accompaniment, alternately echoing and imitating each other or joining together in thirds. The effect is quietly ecstatic, a brief moment of adoration and wonderment. This arrangement can be played with either two cornets or two euphoniums as soloists as the accompaniment works just as effectively with either.Brings contemporary choral repertoire by a leading international composer to the band world.Arrangement of ?'riks Ešenvalds' highly successful choral piece 'O Salutaris Hostia'.Arranged by brass band specialist Phillip Littlemore.Part of EP Brass Band SeriesMeditative, beautiful piece, highly attractive for audiences, and proven success as a choral work.Suitable for intermediate band at 2nd Section and above
