    CROWN IMPERIAL (Brass Band) - Walton, William - Littlemore, Phillip

    William Walton composed his Crown Imperial for performance at the coronation of King Edward VIII, which was scheduled for the 12th May 1937. However, due to the dramatic abdication of Edward, it was in fact performed at the Coronation of the new monarch, King George VI, which took place on the same scheduled date. The march became popular immediately, and arrangements for piano solo, organ, small orchestra and military band were all published within a year. It has been used at all Royal events since, most notably the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. This new brass band transcriptionis in keeping with the shorter, 6-minute concert version that Walton created immediately following the Coronation of George VI. However, the scoring is more in keeping with contemporary brass band voicings, and provides an exciting version for brass band.Duration: 7:00

    OF DISTANT MEMORIES (Music in an Olden Style) (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - Gregson, Edward

    Parts only. Of Distant Memories pays homage to the brass band composers that form the backbone of the brass band repertoire and their music, and in the process summons up a kind of subconscious memory bank of the musical languages, styles and forms used by them. The music is conceived in the form of a 'traditional' tone poem, reflecting certain aspects (e.g. melodic, harmonic, textural) of those early test pieces. Although fairly traditional concepts have been kept in planning the architecture of the work, certain aspects of the instrumentation, or scoring, are more contemporary in colouristic terms, as befits a composer writing in the 21st century. However, the percussion requirements are fairly modest, similar to those used in the works of that period. The brass band tradition owes much to the composers of that period, for through their music they established a truly homogenous 'British' brass band sound which has spread throughout many parts of the world. That tradition flourishes today and remains important for today's composers, even if their musical language is far removed from that of their predecessors. Of Distant Memories is the composers own way of repaying that gratitude.

    Galactic Odyssey (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - Bartlett, Darren

    GALACTICODYSSEY-A Constellation Suite - Journey to the Stars 1) AQUILA - THE EAGLE(magnifico) In Greek mythology Eagles were used to represent an ascension up to the heavens. The opening stanza depicts the wonder of such miraculous acts. A sense of grandeur and of the magnificence of the universe should shine through.2) DRACO - THE DRAGON(con fuoco) The "Celestial pole" or "Seat of Judgement" was guarded by the celestial serpent, the constellation Draco. As the marking indicates, this section should be played "with fire" and exuberance. 3) CYGNUS - THE SWAN(cantabile con calore) Swans are known for their swan-song, it was believed that these birds of regal grace sang only once in their lifetime, just before they die. "To be swan-like" is to greet death with a song of exceptional beauty and calm acceptance. This should be played in a spirit of contemplation with pathos and warmth. 4) DELPHINUS- THE DOLPHIN(capriccio) Dolphins are well-known for their agility and their capricious behaviour; many species will leap out of the water to view their surroundings. This 2nd Century by the astronomer Ptolemy. In this section the marimba emulates the sound of water along with the rain-stick; the rhythm of the raindrops must come through. This is followed by a more melancholic melody which should be played sweetly but sorrowfully; the impact of the elements leading to inward reflection. 6) ORION - THE HUNTER(minaccioso) The scoring here aims to suggest menace and conjures up the threat of the hunt. Bar 10 should be played with edge from the Trombones as the Hunter seeks out his victim. The 'rips' from the Tenor Horns & Euphoniums should emulate the French Horn. Bar 28 sees the commencement of the chase as the Hunter moves on his prey. At Bar 34 the percussion indicates danger is imminent: a sense of threat should cut through with the driving rhythm, a la bolero. This will be reinforced by a strict adherence to the beat, representing the remorseless persistence of the Hunter and the seeming impossibility of the prey's escape. As we move towards the climax of the music, Bar 49 begins with a series of semiquavers depicting stars appearing in the sky. This segues to a frenzied finale, the capture of the exhausted prey and the Hunter's victorious conclusion. should be performed with a sense of breathless joy with playfulness & humour as its key characteristics, as depicted by the tin whistle and timpani glissandos. 5) AQUARIUS - THE WATER CARRIER( tranquillo) Latin for "water carrier", Aquarius is one of the first-recognised constellations and was recorded in the 2nd Century by the astronomer Ptolemy. In this section the marimba emulates the sound of water along with the rain-stick; the rhythm of the raindrops must come through. This is followed by a more melancholic melody which should be played sweetly but sorrowfully; the impact of the elements leading to inward reflection. 6) ORION - THE HUNTER (minaccioso) The scoring here aims to suggest menace and conjures up the threat of the hunt.

    MINNEAPOLIS IV (Brass Band Set) - Emil Soderstrom

    This march was the outcome of a request from Minneapolis IV Corps to write a march to celebrate its 60th anniversary. At the time of its writing, Soderstrom had become a leading arranger for NBC Radio in Chicago and had mastered many contemporary American styles. His lush harmonies remind one of Gershwin, Porter, Berlin and Rodgers while even the scoring suggests an American big-band of the swing era! These and other novel touches make the march interesting to listen to, as well as to play, over 60 years on.
