    BBA March - Roy Newsome

    Part of the Brass Band Aid Series.‘BBA March’ was generously contributed by the late Roy Newsome in support of the ongoing work of the charity, forming part of the repertoire on the BBA Celebrity Band’s CD “Into Africa”. This concert march contains a number of special features – the whole of the first section is in minor mode – unusual and meant to depict the trials and tribulations which have inspired Brass Band Aid. The Trio then goes into the major and begins with a Prayer motif that starts with the notes B-B-A.Following a rather turbulent episode – a reminder that there is still much to do, the Prayer theme returns triumphantly, reflecting optimism for the future.Brass Band Aid is a Charitable Organisation formed by members of Stanhope Silver Band, based in the North of England. From an original aim to raise awareness of the Make Poverty History campaign in their local area, a brass band CD recording was planned. The initiative took on a whole new dimension when the collection of local bands performing on CD were then joined by, what is now known as, The Brass Band Aid Celebrity Band, made up of many of the top brass musicians in the country. Following the success of this initial project the Celebrity Band has come together again to record a new CD – “Into Africa”. This is a compilation of pieces especially written for the recording by some of the most esteemed brass band writers of today. All sets sold raise money for Brass Band Aid – a charity The Music Company has continued to actively support since 2005.

    A Bandsman's Overture - Philip Sparke

    A Bandsman's Overture was commissioned by British Bandsman magazine to celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2012. It was premiered by Black Dyke Band, conducted by Dr Nicholas Childs, at a special anniversary concert held in Symphony Hall, Birmingham, on July 1st.British Bandsman was for a period known as British Bandsman and Contest Field, following an amalgamation of two magazines. 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.

    Pomp and Circumstance No. 1 (Land of Hope and Glory) - Elgar

    Performance Notes by Andrew Duncan:This fine march theme is arranged in two distinct parts.From the beginning up to two bars before letter C the melody is played quietly with the Horns carrying the tune – the Horns have to play up to a high F in this section. If this is not something that your band can manage then you have two options of where you can start playing the arrangement from.If your band can manage the chromatic notes, then begin playing from two bars before letter C. Alternatively, simply start playing directly from letter C .The musical concepts of Rallentando and A tempo are encountered in this arrangement. These can be difficult concepts for inexperienced players to grasp, so playing this arrangement should help to establish this technique.The Flexi-Collection ApproachFlexible scoring tailored to your needs – A perfect solution for expanding the repertoire of training and junior brass bands.
