    Aubade - Dawn Songs of the Fabulous Birds - Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen

    Commissioned by The Norwegian Band Federation for The European Brass Band Championship 2003, in Bergen, Norway (Third edition)I remember as a kid the very early morning wake-up ceremonies caused by Seagulls having a "party" outside our home. Very few would describe it as beautiful, particularly not at 4:30 in the morning... But by listening carefully to birds I was fascinated by their diversity and musical language: they dont sing tunes or long phrases, they rather make sounds and signals, based on short motives.Aubade is based on musical pictures of the imaginary birds: the creatures with wings that exists only in myths and legends.The whole story starts with a Baritone-cadenza that evoke all the sleeping creatures. Very soon they all start to sing their songs in one way or another.The composition has a burlesque scherzo-character including slow espressive intersections. Traditional elements like melody and harmony is combined with extensive sounds and textural effects created by use of multiple muting, singing and playing at the same time.I am not too concerned about having a program for the piece. I just know that by thinking of the unheard dragon-songs, griffin-songs, the sound of the dodo, my creativity was stimultated.As a piece of music, Aubade follows its own rules based on well-known elements like melodies, arpeggio-figures, harmonies, rhythms, variations and recapitulation of ideas.- Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen ??"

    Staff Of Faith - Swiss Traditional - Gavin Somerset

    No concert programme is complete these days without a hymn tune being given the treatment that only a brass band sound can deliver. It is therefore refreshing when a lesser known work becomes available for bands to perform. This Swiss traditional melody has grown in popularity over the last decade and is heard in churches across the globe sang to the words ‘My Faith It Is An Oaken Staff’ by Thomas Lynch. This setting by Gavin Somerset uses the full colours of the brass band spectrum and allows several instrumentalists the chance shine in this warm and entertaining work with a big finish ending.

    Wedding Processional (from The Sound Of Musid) - Richard Rodgers - Len Jenkins

    My wife Jayne, like many others, is an ardent fan of 'The Sound of Music' and the 'Wedding Processional' was an obvious choice to accompany her procession from the church door to the altar. However, in common with many weddings, ours was in a parish church where the distance was much less than shown in the 1965 movie and space for musicians limited. As a result, we set about producing an arrangement that works for a brass quintet with optional glockenspiel and church organ. It runs for 46 seconds (with optional cut) or 58 seconds. This does not sound very long, but it is surprising how quickly the bride gets to the altar. In common with our developing practice, the arrangement is scored for both Brass Band and Concert Brass instruments. A suggested set-up for the organ is also provided though this will be at the discretion of the organist who will know his instrument and setting more intimately. A slightly larger font has been used for the quintet parts to help where lighting levels may be lower than normal. Graham Cooper

    The musical The Sound of Music represents the last collaborations between the successful duo Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Generations have fallen in love with the musical, made particularily famous through its subsequent cinematic release. Naohiro Iwai combines all the musical's highlights: Do-Re-Mi, The Lonely Goatherd, So Long, Farewell, Edelweiss, and Climb Ev'ry Mountain.
