    Fantasia on themes by Purcell

    Music for Brass Band Duration: 8:30 Minutes Percussion: 3 PlayersTimps, Side Drum, Tam-tam and Crash CymbalsIan ShepherdIan Shepherd is the principal tuba of the Band of the Grenadier Guards. As an arranger and composer for brass ensembles, his works have been performed as far afield as China, Korea and Japan as well as closer to home. His arrangements have also been performed on the BBC Radio 3's "In Tune" program and at the Ryedale Music Festival in Yorkshire. Recently he has been commissioned by the brass ensemble of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and has composed fanfares to announce the arrival of Her Majesty the Queen at important state occasions including the service of the Royal Victorian Order in St. George's Chapel Windsor Castle and the ANZAC memorial service in Westminster Abbey.FantasiaFantasia consists of three distinct sections that use thematic material from three separate pieces by Henry Purcell. The first section is based on the march from Funeral Music for Queen Mary which is dramatically dark and powerful but also uplifting. The Second section uses the devastatingly beautiful aria Dido's Lament or When I am laid in earth from the opera Dido and Aeneas as its basis and builds to enormous proportions, unlike the original aria. The third section begins with a haunting reference to the Rondo from Abdelazer. Gradually, this builds towards an exciting re-statement of the theme in the first section to the finale.

    Tranquil Seas - Dan Price

    Tranquil Seas - Suite for Brass Band and Percussion, takes its inspiration from the evocative titles given to the various areas of the Moon's surface.Maria (or Mare) are the large plains on the moon's surface which were created by ancient volcanic eruptions. They are less reflective than the higher ground on the surface and therefore have a darker, blue-ish appearance when viewed from earth with the naked eye. Early astronomers mistook this change in colour as actual water and therefore named them seas.I Sea of Clouds - Mare NubiumThe first movement takes the form of a fanfare and theme and opens full gusto at double fortissimo with a rich descending bass line, fast paced ostinati in solo cornets accompanying a slow paced fanfare from back row cornets, horns and trombones.II Sea of Tranquility - Mare TranquillitatisThis is a slow, peaceful movement in binary form. The first section offers a sense of space and weightlessness through gently ebbing accompaniment and features solos for flugelhorn and euphonium. Percussion and muted trombones introduce a rhythmic pulse to the second section which underpins the remainder of the ensemble scored in block harmony. This interplay between polyphonic and homophonic writing gives the effect of the slowly revolving moon.III Sea of Serenity - Mare SerenitatisThe movement starts with the back drop of gently overlapping ostinati in tuned percussion and a sustained pedal point in horns. Low brass introduce the main theme to which other members of the ensemble join as the movement develops. A second theme is introduced which is more rhythmic in nature and contains a combination of homophonic writing set against a strong, dance-like ostinato (written compound time against single time) which gives the movement a sense of movement. This part of the music expresses the relationship of the moon and the earth, constantly revolving in their eternal dance against the back drop of space. Despite the amount of rhythmic content in this movement the pulse remains slow and there is a lack of urgency in the music so that the calmness and euphoria have an almost hypnotic effect.IV Sea of Dreams - Mare DesideriiThe finale of Tranquil Seas is written in the form of a toccata, opening with a thinly scored pianissimo. The characteristic arpeggio line of the toccata is initially scored on solo cornet and as the movement develops this motif is passed to almost all the family groups in the ensemble. The rich sweeping melody line also associated with this form is featured characteristically on the low brass. This high-octaine final movement brings the complete suite to a dramatic conclusion.This is challenging and demanding music that is also rewarding for both performer and listener. All of the movements work well as individual items if the complete suite is to long for your program.

    Hymn at Sunrise - Ray Steadman-Allen

    The idea for this work was prompted by a poem - Hymn Before Sunrise - which describes the majesty of a mountain in darkness, the sounds of a nearby waterfall and so on. Nothing came of the exposure to these pictures except for general thoughts about the dawn of day and a series of movements expressing a personal response to the wonder of creation in an imaginary moment in time. The movement titles, which were added later, are intended to underline a prevailing sense of worship, wonder and exaltation. The music is pure, not pictoral, though listeners may conjure their own images. An actual hymn - Tallis' Cannon - is incorporated. There are five movements: 1. Thanksgiving: A short prelude in two parts. First a brief passage of 'dawn music' before things become more vigorous: fanfare-like music ushers in the trombone section's presentation of the Tallis tune. A broad band version concludes the movement. 2. De Profundis: A slow movement shot through with anxious questionings featuring flugel and trombone. The mood lightens a little in the centre where the soprano cornet is featured and the movement ends serenely. 3. Celebration is characterised by rhythmic drive, this is buoyant with plenty of incident pointed up by the percussion. 4. Invocation: Melodic in nature and sober in mood, the first section is a series of short solos mingled with chorale-like statements. Central to the movement is a chorale-prelude style presentation of the Tallis tune. The third section reintroduces the earlier solo music by the full ensemble. Dissolving, the music enters the last movement without a break. 5. Paean: Marked allegro con spirito there is, quite rightly, a fair amount of fun in the rejoicing. Snatches of Tallis are heard, then comes a gentle passage with a cornet solo leading to fanfare music and recapitulation. Two recitatives are succeeded by a coda which brings the work to a sonorous and exultant conclusion.
