    Judd: Quest - Sharman, Paul

    ‘Quest’ was originally written for the Territorial Youth Band (UK) in 2012. It is a major work in three movements, Movement 1: Making a difference, Movement 2: Making time and Movement 3: Making progress. The music essentially charts the journey of the Christians life. The music commences with Ray Steadman-Allen’s choral work and testimony ‘So this is it! My day for living!’ and has references and then a presentation to the tune ‘Southport’ associated with the words ‘To serve the present age my calling to fufil’. The music displays the struggle of the Christian in maintaining a witness within this world. The second movement is a reflective and prayerful setting of the song ‘This day’ found in the Sing to the Lord journal. The imposing third movement features the tune ‘Trust in God’ with the associated words ‘As the weary way of life we journey’. The piece has been recorded by the International Staff Band under the same title (SPS330)

    Apollo 11

    A Major Original work from Drew Fennell. Drew comments on this work " I intend for "Apollo 11" apart from programmatic depictions of NASA's launch, three day jorney and historic moon landing, to be a celebration of the American spirit. The bold statement by President John F.Kennedy in a message to congress in May of 1961 set forth the goal: "...before the decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth" From this grand vision sprang one of the most audacious plans ever concieved by humankind. Having not yet even achieved earth orbit, the idea of astronauts travelling over two hundred thousdand miles through very inhospitable space to the Moon, landing and walking on its surface would seem impossible. And yet, through tremendous vision, creativity, ingenuity and downright courage, it became a reality in just over eight years. The piece begins with a musical statement depicting Kennedy's words and response by politicians, scientists and all Americans to support the noble quest. After years of engineering and test missions, on July 16 1969 we witness the countdown and the violent and fiery launch of the Saturn V rocket which would carry the astronauts into space. Next is depicted the experience of the peaceful weightlessness of space as the brave astronauts hurtle toward the Moon. Concluding the work, on July 20 1969, America and the world celebrate one of the greatest triumphs in the history of mankind as Neil Armstrong descends the ladder from the Lunar Module to the Moons dusty surface Duration approx 11 minutes Drew R Fennell - April 14 2008

    Vortex (Score only) - Robert Simpson

    Vortex - a mass of swirling fluid; the centre of the vortex is static whereas the swirling mass becomes faster as it is sucked inexorably towards the centre. This is reflected in the structure of Robert Simpson's final work for brass band. It is cast in a single fast tempo movement made up of three sections. Each section begins softly but actively and grows in volume and intensity to a great discharge of energy on a unison note. Each section is longer than then the last and each unison discharge is a semitone lower than the last. The effect is cumulative and the closing pages witness an explosion of energy from the full band gradually rbeing drawn into the unison final note. Vortex was commissioned by the IMI Yorkshire Imperial Band and first performed at the Leeds Music Festival on 6 July 1990.
