The then owner, John Henry Iles, celebrated this new title by commissioning Ord Hume to write the famous march, BB & CF. As a salute to this heritage A Bandsman's Overture starts with the four notes, B(b)-B(b)-C-F, a motive which permeates an opening fanfare, which contrasts a busy opening with a more legato central section. This gives way to a bustling Vivo, based on repeated staccato notes. A change of key heralds a central cantabile melody, first on euphoniums and baritone and then played by the full band, which is followed by a short development section. This leads to a transformed reprise and a return of the opening fanfare, decorated this time by florid muted cornets.

    King Solomon's Mines - Rodney Newton

    This short concert overture was written for Robert Childs and Cory Band as part of the composer's contribution to the Brass Band Aid project. It is based on Sir Henry Rider Haggard's African adventure story of the hunter Alan Quatermain and his companions, and their search for the fabled lost diamond mines of King Solomon, in which they are aided by a local tribesman and obstructed by an evil witch doctor.The music is firmly planted in John Williams' Indiana Jones territory but, before anyone accuses him of plagiarism, the composer would like to point out that, since all the Indiana Jones films owe a huge debt to the romances of Rider Haggard, the wheel has turned the full circle and he is utterly unrepentant!
