    MYTHIC TREVITHICK! (Brass Band) - Richards, Goff

    Composed to mark the 200th anniversary of Richard Trevithick's momentous first journey in his steam locomotive. This event took place in the cornish town of Camborne, and it was 200 years later in 2001 that composer Goff Richards conducted massed local bands in the first performance of MYTHIC TREVITHICK! Following work in South America, Trevithick returned to his native Cornwall and, it is reputed, all the church bells rang out to greet him, an effect captured in the final bars of the piece. Duration: 4' 00' Recorded on Polyphonic QPRL222D And the Band Played On

    Gippsland - Alex F. Lithgow

    Alexander Frame Lithgow (1870 – 1929) was a Scottish-born, New Zealand and Australian based composer and bandleader, known as the "Sousa of the Antipodes".In 1876, the Lithgows emigrated to Invercargill, New Zealand. After initially having cornet lessons from his father, Alex joined the Invercargill Garrison Band at the age of 11, and progressed to principal cornet by the time he was 16.At the age of 17 his first composition, Wairoa, was published, and so began a productive life of composition, including approximately 200 marches, as well as numerous pieces for band, orchestra, piano and voice.He died in 1929 a few months short of his 60th birthday and at his funeral, massed bands played one of his most famous marches, The Invercargill.

    The Puffing Devil - Christopher Bond

    For Children's Choir & Brass Band, commissioned by Camborne Trevithick Day Committee in celebration of the town's 30th Trevithick DayThe Puffing Devil (2013) was commissioned by Camborne Trevithick Day Committee on the occasion of Camborne's 30th Trevithick Day celebration. The premiere performance of the work, written for brass band and children's choir, saw a massed performance by six brass bands and children from nine local schools. With the intention of being an educational work as well as a musical work, The Puffing Devil reflects the story of Richard Trevithick both in the lyrics and the musical material.A mysterious opening sees running semiquavers in the euphoniums as the flugel horn introduces the work with a solo, before the entry of the horns playing rhythmic quavers. The addition of the voices at the outset is for effect - working with the instruments to create the sound of a steam engine gathering pace simply to the words 'Trevithick'. Once a steady tempo is reached, themes are introduced and sung by the choir, where the vocal writing is a very simple singular-melody; easy for any primary school aged children to learn. An ending of grandeur in a majestic nature is presented, to create a big finish to a feel-good educational work.
