    O Holy Night - Adolph Adam - Stephen Tighe

    Arranged for the full band, this timeless classic has something for every player.

    Time Eternal - Christopher Bond

    Time Eternal (2011) was written as a showcase for band in the form of a seven-minute journey which demonstrates the ability of the band and its soloists. Time Eternal (2011) was written as a showcase for band in the form of a seven-minute journey which demonstrates the ability of the band and its soloists. As the title suggests, the idea of time is important in the work, with bell-like gestures forming the opening and closing sections. Rhythmic material is heard, often juxtaposing more lyrical passages, sometimes with dramatic percussion or semiquaver running accompaniments in the cornets.A slow and expressive middle section hears soloistic contributions from the flugel horn and euphoniums, as well as fuller tutti passages, before a return to the energetic tempo of the opening where material is heard again, often presented in different ways with a real sense of drive through to the close.

    A Tear in the Fabric of Time - Gareth Wood - -

    A Tear in the Fabric of Time is essentially a symphony for brass band and was inspired by the book The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene, which attempts to simplify complex ideas in modern physics for the layperson. This piece was dedicated to and written for the Buy As You View Band but was first performed by the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain, conducted by Robert Childs in Summer 2006. The work is featured by the Cory Band on their recording The Promised Land (DOYCD218).A brassy, fanfare like introduction provides much of the material for the rest of the work.This leads into a dramatic 'Allegro' driving forward with brittle motives and stabbing chords. A euphonium melody accompanied by divided basses attempts to mellow the mood, but is unsuccessful as the music drives ruthlessly on! The centre of the work is a choral like Adagio; maybe the blackness of space or the darkness of human nature. A short episode leads into a 'Presto' which is a reworking of the first 'Allegro' relentlessly careering to a violent end! [Gareth Wood, 2006]

    Things to Come - Phillip Littlemore

    The 1936 science fiction film Things to Come was written by H G Wells and starred Raymond Massey and Ralph Richardson. It was based on the author’s 1933 novel The Shape of Things To Come , an elaborate prophecy of world war, disease, dictatorship and, finally, a utopia. ? It was Wells himself that approached Bliss to write the music for the film, although Bliss had no experience of writing for this medium. Wells believed that the music was integral and not to be added later, and so several sections of the score were completed before shooting and some of it was used intact. Whether the producer, Alexander Korda, had agreed to this is unclear but, inevitably, some of the music was edited under the watchful eye of Muir Mathieson, who was involved in the project as music director and also working on his first major film. ? Some six months before the release of the film Bliss created an extensive Suite for the BBC, and conducted two-thirds of the special recording sessions himself. Some of the original manuscripts and material from those sessions subsequently disappeared and are now lost. The later concert suite, from 1940 and dedicated to H G Wells, includes six movements of which four have been arranged in this brass band transcription. ? Sir Arthur Bliss (1891–1975) Bliss was one of the most important figures in British musical life from the early 1920s through to his later years when he was Master of the Queen’s Music. He wrote over 140 works for every combination of voice and instrument including large scale orchestral works, operas, ballets, film scores, chamber works, songs and music for brass band. He was composing right up to his death at the age of 83. ? H G Wells (1866–1946) Wells was a writer of science-fiction which also explored social topics of class conflict to evolution. He became a literary sensation almost overnight when his first novel, The Time Machine , was published in 1895. This was followed in quick succession by The Island of Doctor Moreau , The Invisible Man and The War of the Worlds . As an internationally recognised author he travelled extensively gaining notoriety for his radical social and political views. Today he is often referred to as the ‘Father of Science Fiction’. ?

    A Journey to The Bermuda Triangle - Pimpanit Karoonyavanich

    A Journey to The Bermuda Triangle - Pimpanit Karoonyavanich - 11'20'' - BVT117 After Karoonyavanich has seen her favourite seaview painting by Romain Steppe (1859-1927) for the first time, she was directly inspired and started to write “A Journey to The Bermuda Triangle”. This work consists of 4 sections: The Storm, The Graveyard, The Kingdom of Mermaids and The Escape. The concept of the opening is influenced by Chopin's Etude Op.25 No.11 “Winter Wind” which begins with a calm melodic theme. Then it turns immediately into the agitated and energetic movement representing the calm ocean that turns wild. The storm has taken away many pilots and sailors' life’s, they say people who survive from the storm were able to see the ruined of the victims at the grave yard. This movement of "Graveyard" sounds mysterious and dreadful. The following section "The Kingdom of Mermaids" repeats the storm theme and builds up gradually with solo’s to finally have a big climax reflecting the beauty of the Kingdom of Mermaids. According to one of the legends of the Bermuda Triangle, mermaids exist there and trick the sailors with their beautiful voice and appearance then take away all their souls. Some sailors realized that they were tricked and try to escape. Unfortunately, none of them could ever return back home. This section ‘The escape’ begins with low brass solos and gets more intense until the climax at the end honouring all the Bermuda Triangle's victims.

    Is That The Time?

    ‘Is That The Time’ was written in 2014 for UK national award winning band ‘Youth Brass 2000’. It’s a showpiece in a jazzy fusion idiom with a full and central role for the kit drummer and percussionists. The temptation must be resisted to play the piece too quickly and in so doing losing the 16th note syncopations inherent within the rhythmic groove. The challenge is not so much one of getting the notes, although there are a few harmonic surprises along the way, as one of playing as a cohesive rhythmic unit.Duration: 4:30 minutesPercussion: 4 Players playing drum kit, bongos, congas, shaker, tambourine and vibraphone Grade 5: Difficult Championship and 1st Section Bands
