    Pageantry - Herbert Howells

    Herbert Howells was born in Gloucestershire in 1892 and, as a youngster, wrote and conducted music for bands in the Forest of Dean, where a strong brass banding tradition still exists. In later life, when an established composer, Howells accepted an invitation to write a test-piece for the 1934 British Open Brass Band Championship. Encouraged by that great friend of the brass band movement, Sir Granville Bantock, he responded with Pageantry, a three movement work, which is still a stiff test for bands today. He undertook the task with great conscientiousness, frequently seeking advice from those more associated with the brass band genre such as Henry Geehl and John Henry Iles. The work was very well received by players and public alike, and still remains part of the core repertoire for brass bands.There are three movements and the first, King's Herald, features fanfares and a demanding animated section. The central slow movement, Cortege, is rather solemn and gives opportunity to display the lyrical qualities of brass instruments. Between February and June 1934, Britain lost three very important musical figures; Elgar, Holst and Delius. Howells was a very sensitive man (as the shattering effect on him of the death of his son revealed two years later) and Elgar had been a particular friend and mentor. It is entirely possible therefore that this elegiac music is a kind of memorial to the great composer - it would have been a very typical gesture. Jousts, which ends the work, is a real tour de force for brass and as tough a challenge as anyone could wish.

    Sussex Carol (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - McKenzie, Jock

    This carol is also known by its first line "On Christmas Night all Christians Sing". It was discovered by Cecil Sharp in Gloucestershire and notably by Ralph Vaughan Williams in Sussex. Vaughan Williams heard it sung by Harriet Verrall of Monk's Gate, near Horsham, Sussex (hence "Sussex Carol"). It is the melody that Harriet Verrall sang that Vaughan Williams transcribed and published in 1919. It is this same version that is still very popular today. Duration: 3.30

    The Holly and the Ivy (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - McKenzie, Jock

    This traditional folk carol was collected by Cecil Sharp and was published in his collection 'English Folk-Carols' in 1911. Sharp states that he heard the tune sung by Mrs Mary Clayton at Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire. Variants of the carol's lyrics appeared in various publications around the English Midlands, most notably in Birmingham in the early 19th century. This arrangement focuses' on the line from the carol's refrain "and the running of the deer" ??" influencing both choice pace and the 'hurdles' to be jumped over. Duration: 2.00
