    A Suffolk Prelude - Andrew Duncan

    Written for the Ipswich & Norwich Co-Op Band, A Suffolk Prelude is based around five traditional tunes from Suffolk:‘Nutting Time’,‘Blackberry Fold’,‘Cupid’s Garden’,‘A Seaman’s Life’‘The Bold Richard’The piece begins on the percussion and timpani alone leading through a crescendo into the first statement of the fanfare which is derived from a motif from the tune ‘Nutting Time’. This leads into a playing of the ‘Nutting Time’ tune which is then developed as the tune is passed around the band.‘Nutting Time’ is a jolly lighthearted tune about a ‘fair maid’ who meets a handsome young farmer called ‘Johnny’ when out gathering nuts in the wood. After a pause on the tubular bells the slow tune ‘Blackberry Fold’ is presented as a solo for Flugel Horn, then as a full band version.‘Blackberry Fold’ is a touching song about a Suffolk squire who gets married well below his station to a beautiful milkmaid, simply because he loves her! They live happily ever after.The next tune to be heard is the juanty ‘Cupid’s Garden’ played firstly as a solo on the Euphonium, and again this is about the subject of love. This song is sung from a sailors prospective and he tells how he met a lovely maiden and has promised to marry her when he returns from duty at sea.The trombones then play the noble tune ‘A Seaman’s Life’. This tune seems to serve as a warning to young girls about the fickle nature and the total unsuitability of marrying a sailor! ‘Oh a seaman’s life is a merry merry life, they’ll rob young girls of their heart’s delight, they will leave them behind for to sail one morn, but they never know when they’ll return’. Despite this it is a fine tune!The last tune featured is ‘The Bold Richard’ which is played by all the bass instruments in the band. This is a song telling how the Royal Navy friggate ‘The Bold Richard’ went to battle against a French friggate destroying her and taking her crew as prisoners.Suffolk Prelude goes on to feature a slow version of the tune ‘A Seaman’s Life’ played alongside a fast version of the tune ‘Cupid’s Garden’. The opening fanfare then returns leading into a final coda section.

    Purple Prelude - Ian Raisbeck

    Purple Prelude was composed in 2017 by Ian Raisbeck for the Lions Youth Brass - the title, reflecting the colours of the band uniforms. The piece features 3 contrasting themes; the first a fanfare style opening full of pomp and ceremony, the second idea is a lively and rhythmical section giving the percussion players some latin inspired rhythms to fit the driving syncopated accompaniment rhythms. The final idea is a slower more reflective theme, giving the band a chance to show a warmer, richer sound. It is important to note that there are three very distinct styles (as described above). The contrasts between fanfare, lively rhythmic playing and the lyrical hymn style are important to capture. Dynamics and Tempo should also be carefully observed to produce full effect (some parts are written with different dynamics to others - this is intentional). During the central section percussion players may wish to alter the printed parts (in a Latin style).Also available to purchase in print from(external webpage, opens in new window)

    Prelude and Fanfare - Dan Price

    Prelude and Fanfare takes its inspiration from a piece of NSA Video footage, where a camera is attached to a piece of debris and jettisoned into space from the space shuttle.The work is a musical reflection of this journey, starting with a 'weightless' lontano section, followed by a high-octane musical representaion of the debris journey, from re-entry of the earth's atmosphere, the plummet back to earth and the inevitable final "thud" of the journey's end.This musical study explores the use of minimalist techniques and ideas within the confines of the brass band idiom. The overall structure of the piece is based on the shape of a crescendo, starting at the softest level the ensemble is capable of, finishing at the greatest.

    Concert Prelude - James McFadyen

    A lively concert opener by the pen of James McFadyen. Concert Prelude is in binary form and is in the style of a fanfare of two contrasting tones; the main theme is robust and strong, whilst the 2nd theme is light and playful.Although not a difficult piece, the accompanying vamp performed by most of the band has a particular set of articulations, that on first glance may seem awkward. Conductors will enjoy translating the articulated rhythm to their band, thus increasing their on-going development and performing Concert Prelude in a way that replicates the energy and excitement the composer intends.

    Centennial Prelude - Jan Van der Roost

    This short opening music was composed on commission of the symphonic band of Jan Van der Roost's village (= Kontich near Antwerp / Belgium). In 1991, this community band celebrated its 100th anniversary. After composing commissioned pieces from different countries (even from Japan), this was the most 'near' commission he ever received indeed!It is a short but varied piece, featuring all sections of the band. After a short introduction, played by the brass instruments, a crisp rhythm starts and boxes the main theme. After a second theme, played by brass and percussion, a short melodical passage brings some 'rest'. At the end, the fanfare of the introductionreoccurs.Although this "Centennial Prelude" isn't a really demanding piece, it sounds colourful and energetic. It has been recorded on CD by the band of the 'Royal Dutch Airforce' and the 'Desford Colliery Brass band'.
