    Memories of a Lost Boy - Ben Hollings - -

    Commissioned by Dr. Robert Childs for Foden's Band's ‘Celebration of Youth' Brass in Concert 2017 programme, Memories of a Lost Boy takes its inspiration from J.M Barrie's fictional character - the epitome of eternal youth - Peter Pan.Peter is a free spirit who can fly and never grows up. In Hook, he flies away to Kensington Gardens, only to return and find that his parents have forgotten about him and have had another child. Peter becomes the leader of the Lost Boys, a band of boys who were lost by their parents and came to live on the mythical island of Neverland.Scottish Novelist and playwright, J.M. Barrie, created Peter's character based on his older brother, David, who died in an ice-skating accident the day before his 14th birthday. His mother and brother thought of him as forever a boy.Memories of a Lost Boy can be heard on Flowers Band's 2018 CD release: Celebrate - 50 Years of Flowers.

    Charge of the Light Brigade - Andrew Stevenson

    Charge of the Light Brigade tells the story of a battle in the Crimean War, where six hundred members of the light cavalry were sent to attack an Artillery Battery. However, due to miscommunications they were sent to the wrong Artillery Battery, past the original target. The 600 hundred soldiers then found themselves being attacked on two sides because of the error. 156 men lost their lives and another 122 were wounded.The piece follows the structure of the poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. The fanfare that starts the piece is the exact same used at the battle. The presto is the advance of the Light Brigade towards the Russian guns. The slow passage is a hymn for the men that lost their lives and the finale symbolises the triumphant return of the men that survived, and how the memories of the horrific battle that took place linger on in their minds. Throughout the piece, I have used antiphonal sounds to reinforce the ideas that I have taken from the poem.A recording of the Charge of the Light Brigade is available on the Foden's CD, Patrons' Choice VII (DOY CD329)
