    H.M.S Pinafore Overture - Arthur Sullivan - Gavin Somerset

    The collaborations of Gilbert & Sullivan have given us some of the most memorable music in history. The overture to the H.M.S pinafore is a lively, foot tapping introduction to the comic opera, first performed in 1878. With wonderful melodies and band parts to keep every player entertained, this makes a great alternative to the challenging Italian overtures so often played. This piece has been skilfully arranged and can be played by most levels of bands.

    W.S.B. March - Gavin Somerset

    After performing a number of arrangements by Gavin Somerset, the band commissioned him to compose for them, an original march that would serve as their signature tune for years to come. The march was composed in a light 6/8 time that would get passes by listening and audience’s feet tapping along. Composed with a DC, this is optional and the finale of the march has a licence for a Grandioso and accelerando to give the work that flair for its finale.

    Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 (allegro) - J.S Bach - John Abbott

    The "Brandenburg Concertos" were composed and dedicated to Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg in 1721, however it seems now they were never actually played for him. This 1st movement has been kilfully arranged as a trio for Soprano Cornet and 2 Bb Cornets (solo cornet, and repiano). This is sure to test the strongest of players, utilising the soprano's high register and making work of the low register on the Bb cornets. As well as keeping the band entertained with running semi-quavers (and some wonderful intervals for the basses!!!) This certainly is a hard piece to perform for the three soloists, but its well worth the challenge.

    Devil's Duel - Peter Meechan

    Devila??s Duel takes its inspiration from the story of the infamous Niccolo Paganini whose virtuosity was astounding. He began playing the violin at age seven, and by the age of 13 had the reputation of being the leading Italian violinist of his time. People began to speculate about Paganinia??s great talent, and began to wonder about his gift. He became known as a a??Hexensohna? or witcha??s brat.Paganinia??s demonic reputation became so widespread that his talent was often attributed to the belief that he had help from the devil. Later in life, Paganini would tour Europe, though rumours of supernatural guidance never ceased. He would give concerts, and often a??duela? with other virtuosi - a??winninga? by improvising during the contest (or concert!) by adding octaves, thirds, and sixths, and often playing more notes in a second than thought humanly possible.Devils Duel uses the famous music of Paganinia??s Caprice no.24 as its musical material, and sees the euphonium soloist duelling with various instruments in the band with displays of virtuosity in the fast music, and cunning in the slow.Devila??s Duel was commissioned by David Thornton, to whom this is dedicated. The premiere was given by David Thornton, Nicholas Childs, and the Black Dyke Band at Leeds Town Hall, 26 May 2006.

    On Eagle's Wings'

    Music for Brass Band Duration: 6:00 MinutesPercussion: 3 PlayersTimpani, Glockenspiel, Triangle, Suspended Cymbal.All Rights ReservedProgramme Notes I first came across this beautiful hymn a few years ago at a friend’s wedding. The powerful words of the refrain particularly struck with me along with its lovely melody, which form the basis for the cornet solo. I intend for the music to radiate the warmth and comfort of the Eagle's wings before taking flight. It soars higher and higher (leaving behind burdens and unhappiness) before breaking through into the sunlight - the powerful climax for full band with the soloist soaring majestically over all.And He will raise you up on eagles' wingsBear you on the breath of dawnMake you to shine like the sunAnd hold you in the palm of His hand.'On Eagle's Wings’ was premiered and recorded by Jim Hayes for his 'Angels Will Fall' CD in his 'Jonny Midnight' series, accompanied by the Co-operative Funeralcare Band and conducted by Michael Fowles, in 2016.Tony SwainsonTony Swainson is Senior Low Brass Tutor at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS) in Glasgow.

    "The Gartan Mothers Lullaby"Dusk is drawn and the Green Man's thorn is wreathed in rings of fog,Siabra sails his boat till morn, upon the starry bog.A leanbhan O, the pale moon hath brimmed her cusp in dew,And weeps to hear the sad sleep-tune, I sing O love of you.A lovely Irish melody from Co. Donegal; the lullaby of a mother to her child. The song refers to a number of figures in Irish mythology, places in Ireland and words in the Irish language.The best known recording of the song was made by Meryl Streep in 2000.

    The Sorcerer's Apprentice | Dukas arr. Alwyn Green

    Most of us are familiar with the symphonic poem written by 19th century composer, Paul Dukas, which was inspired by an 18th century poem by Goethe in which the sorcerer's apprentice, desiring to save himself some work attempts to try his hand at his masters craft when things go terribly wrong!This version, arranged by Alwyn Green for Brass Band, captures the spirit of the original masterpiece in a complex and challenging score for Brass Band. It has all the drama, and vibrant energy of the Dukas masterpiece, brilliantly orchestrated for Brass Band.Listen to the piece played by Foresters Brass 2000, from their CD : 'Heritage' which can be obtained from the band.

    Harry's Song - Peter Meechan

    Harry's Song is the second movement of Origins, a concerto for euphonium. Happy and reflective in nature, the main melody was written on the evening that my closest friend, Mark Bousie (a fine euphoniumist himself), and his wife Jayne, had their first child - Harry Bousie. It seemed only fitting that this song should be written for Harry in celebration.
