    A Place Where Dreams Come True - James McFadyen

    A Place Where Dreams Come True is concert item that is like a tiny symphony. Opening with an original chorale which merges into a pop-rock item with lyrical and syncopated melodies. From there, the piece transforms into classical overture style before entering the closing bars which are more akin to a sad song.This is one of James' earliest compositions for brass band and it certainly has a unique form, but somehow the piece as a whole feels recognisable and comfortable. A real hidden gem of a piece this one!

    Clair de Lune

    Clair de Lune is a well-known piano piece by French impressionist composer, Claude Debussy. In this new brass band arrangement, Clair de Lune is full of magic, warmth and drama.This cornet solo, as recorded by Jim Hayes on his Debut studio album, Dial M for Midnight, Clair de Lune will show-off your star principal cornet player, allow them to display their warm tone, control and musicality in this well-known piece.The arrangement itself is not a straight transcription as the arranger feels the original is a piano piece written specifically for the technique of the piano. Instead, a whole new sound world is created, with subtle harmonic devices, and some not-so-subtle harmonic devices, such as a Walton-style modal chord.One of the McFadyen techniques is in the sudden juxtaposition of extreme changes in style and tone, and this technique is heard to full effect in this brass band arrangement of Clair de Lune. This is particularly noticeable in the transition from the big and dark finale transitioning into the final closing bars; it's quite an extraordinary and heart-pounding effect that takes your breath away.The final bars are inspired from a track by Chris Botti, where he performs a long high note above the accompaniment.

    The Rising - Andrew Ford

    To human beings, bush-fires are terrifying and often deadly events. But to the Australian bush, they bring the prospect of regeneration. After the conflagration, comes peace. It is often only a few days after the fire that the first shoots start to appear. Pale green leaves bud on charred branches. Slowly, the Bush renews itself. Over years, even decades, the native vegetation re-establishes itself, the undergrowth becomes thick once more. In effect, of course, the forest is now stockpiling fuel, and if not checked and occasionally cleared, the cycle must continue. The Bush needs fire to survive. These were the images I had in mind when I was composing The Rising. This is what gave me my structure.But, really, the piece might represent any sort of rising - revolutionary or religious, cosmic or simply musical - where a violent event brings peace and then, after a time, too much peace leads to violence. This short work begins with one big bang, then builds inexorably towards another. At the end, it feels as though the piece might begin again (and again (and again)) . . .The Rising was commissioned by the Black Dyke Band and is dedicated to them with respect and great admiration. ?

    Bad Moon Rising - John Fogerty - Len Jenkins

    "Bad Moon Rising" is a song written by John Fogerty and performed by Creedence Clearwater Revival. It was the lead single from their album Green River and was released in April 1969, four months before the album. It reached No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in September 1969 and has been recorded by at least 20 different artists, in styles ranging from folk to reggae to psychedelic rock. The last line of the chorus, "there's a bad moon on the rise", is sometimes misheard as "there's a bathroom on the right" and Fogerty occasionally sings the misheard lyric in concert. The song has become notably popular in Argentina as a football chant and in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, a modified version, titled "Brasil, decime que se siente" ("Brazil, Tell Me How It Feels") was sung with Spanish lyrics that taunted Brazil, their traditional rival. It went viral and became very popular (in Argentina).

    Out of Africa - Barry, J - Barry, D

    The great irony of John Barry’s Academy Award-winning score for Out of Africa (which also took the Oscar as Best Picture) is that it almost never was – director Sydney Pollack had originally envisioned the film with native African music, going as far as laying the indigenous score down as he was editing. But the weight of John Barry’s arguments held sway, and the composer delivered on his intent: a lush, romantic masterpiece for the ages. This romantic film is marked by its many breathtaking views of unspoiled African landscapes. John Barry’s main title theme masterfully captures the moods and feels of the film. A terrific arrangement by his namesake!4th section +
