    Upon the Celtic Cross - Jonathan Bates

    Upon the Celtic Cross is an effective opener, overture or finale to any programme. With choreography, special percussion effects, and impressive virtuosity showcasing the various sections of the band, this new concert work has great entertainment value and was used by the Flowers Band to close their 2014 Brass in Concert programme.The music brings together two of Ireland's rich musical trademarks. Ancient, almost cinematographic chant-like music sets the scene, before breaking out into the more widely recognised Irish dance style. These two elements combine towards the close which also features tribe-like singing within the band!

    The Descent - Christopher Bond

    The Descent takes its inspiration from Victorian author Jules Verne; specifically, his work Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.In Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Professor Arronax finds himself a prisoner of the mysterious Captain Nemo, on a remarkable submarine called the Nautilus. Nemo is one of Verne's most memorable characters. He's a man who has turned his back on the world, and his name - Nemo - means 'No Man.' He has vowed never to set foot on dry land ever again. Verne gives his hero's brilliance and benevolence a dark underside - the man's obsessive hate for Empires and Imperialism. Captain Nemo is a genius, an engineer, an artist, an athlete, sometimes a pacifist, sometimes a righter of wrongs, sometimes an out and out villain, and he invented the Nautilus.The Descent is based on the idea of a descent to the depths of the ocean in the Nautilus with Captain Nemo, with the cornet soloist expressing both the anguish and reflective sides of the character. On one hand, a troubled and agitated figure, juxtaposed with the reflective memories of his homeland, children, mother and father. The work was written for and commissioned by Flowers Band as part of their programme of music at Brass in Concert 2019.

    Overture on God Save the Queen - Jonathan Bates

    Composer Jonathan Bates describes his Overture on God Save the Queen as, "a messed up take on the UK national anthem!" The work takes the well-known melody and goes as wildly different from the original as possible.Much of the music is written in a deep ethereal funk in 13/16, before a heavy, grungy half-time feel section featuring the euphonium and baritone, with the tune still dominating the harmonic structure of the accompaniment.With great scope for choreography the work is extremely clever, entertaining, and proved the perfect vehicle to open both Flowers Band's 2014 Brass in Concert programme, and their 2015 Butlins Mineworker's Championship winnning programme.
