    Seaside Rendezvous - Freddie Mercury - Iain McKnight

    There was no greater showman in the world of rock than Freddie Mercury and, for many, no greater group than Queen. The release in 2018 of the film Bohemian Rhapsody brought the sounds of Queen to a new generation as well as providing a welcome dose of musical reminiscence for fans across the world. As well as an astonishingly gifted performer, Freddie Mercury was an equally adept composer, drawing upon his early musical training as a classical pianist as well as his eclectic musical tastes to create songs of immense character and imagination.With its echoes of music hall, vaudeville and no small amount of saucy postcard humour, Seaside Rendezvous is from the band's fourth studio album, A Night at the Opera, released in 1975. The song is so complex and makes such extensive use of multi-tracking and specially recorded effects - the tap dance segment, for example, was created by Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor ‘performing' on the mixing desk with thimbles on their fingers - that Queen never performed it live.Colourfully scored and featuring numerous momentary solos around the band - including a feature for the cornet section on kazoos - this arrangement was made for Foden's Band and featured as part of their programme for the 2018 Brass in Concert Championships at Sage Gateshead. The band subsequently recorded it on their 2019 CD, Trials and Triumphs.

    LORD OF THE SEA (Brass Band Set) - Ray Steadman-Allen

    Each movement of this suite is linked with a quotation from the Bible; 1. Water's edge ('And Jesus went forth...by the sea-side...' Mark 2 v.13). 2. Seascapes ('His dominion shall be from sea to sea' Zechariah 9 v.10). 3. Seafarer's song ('Sing unto the Lord...ye that go down to the sea' Isaiah 42 v.10). The first two movements are based on the composer's own settings of poems by Miriam Richards. The third movement (generally lively in characater) introduces a broad hymn-like melody not associated with any words in particular but nevertheless evoking a spirit of exaltation and praise.

    My Little Welsh Home - Traditional

    This is a Welsh song by W S Gwynne Williams, which I have arranged in memory of my mother. It is for Brass Band, with optional vocal solo or unison choir. My mother was born, Doreen Davies, on 27th November 1918, in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, a small town in South West Wales. She had a beautiful voice, and met my father, Bill Paton, during World War II. She was singing in a troop concert at the County Theatre in her home town, and my father was the MC. Throughout her life, my mother and father entertained, and she was singing right up until the final months of her life. She spent many years of her life in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, a seaside town in South West England, and it was here that she passed away on 20th September 24. During the last several months of her life, she often referred to the song “My Little Welsh Home”. Here are the words.I am dreaming of the mountains of my home, Of the mountains where in childhood I would roam; I have dwelt ‘neath Southern skies, Where the summer never dies, But my heart is in the mountains of my home.I can see the little homestead on the hill, I can hear the magic music of the rill; There is nothing to compare, With the love that was once there, In that little homestead on the hill.I can see the quiet churchyard down below, Where the mountain breezes wander to and fro; And when God my soul will keep, It is there I want to sleep, With those dear old folks that loved me long ago.Looking at the words, I can see why it meant so much to her. Haverfordwest is at the foot of the Preseli Mountains, and her home and Church were at the top of a hill.My mothers’ ashes were taken back to her own little Welsh home, and laid to rest in the grounds of the Church where she was Christened, Confirmed and Married.The Welsh Bass-Baritone singer Bryn Terfel has recorded this song on one of his CDs. It has also been released on “New Horizons”, by Aled Jones.Roger Thorne, composer, arranger and of Thornes Music, also MD of Wem Jubilee Band, was very complimentary about this arrangement, (following a concert in which they featured a Welsh lady singer), referring to the use of tone colours, harmony and the atmospheric sound.

    The Clock with the Dresden Figures - Score & Parts - Albert Ketelby

    Howard Snell has arranged this delicious number by Albert Ketelby for three percussionists. It is the kind of seaside bandstand music that still delights listeners in the 21st century. Musically very skilled, Ketelby and other stalwarts like Percy Fletcher, Eric Coates, and later, Gilbert Vinter, turned out enormous quantities of high quality 'light' music" principally in the first half of the 20th century.
