    Battle Ground - Paul Sharman - -

    This duet was written for Hendon Salvation Army band’s annual Hendon Highlights concert, held at the Cadogan Hall in London. The soloists on that occasion were Philip Cobb and David Childs. A Salvation Army song entitled ‘God’s Soldier’ provides the main theme for the piece and the title is taken from a line from the song; ‘where evil reigns his battle ground’. This is a fun piece that gives the soloists an opportunity to show off their ability. The music is fast, lively and exciting and, on the whole, the soloists work together but there are times when there is an element of competition, almost ‘battling’ each other musically.

    It Takes Two from Euphonium Concerto - Karl Jenkins - -

    It Takes Two is taken from Karl Jenkins' Euphonium Concerto, an extended work given its world premiere by euphonium soloist David Childs and the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Owain Arwel Hughes in St. David's Hall, Cardiff during the last night of the 2009 Welsh Proms.It Takes Two, which would normally form the third movement of the concerto, is an improvisatory style for the soloist. The music is in the form of a habanera style tango with the euphonium 'partnering' a number of instruments in the ensemble while 'breaking away' from time to time in rolling roulades. A judicious use of multi-phonics rounds off the coda.On his eagerness to compose the work for David, Karl Jenkins stated, "It's been a privilege to write for such a virtuoso performer. We had been talking about it for some time and happily it all came together in 2009. David is a wonderful musician of the highest quality and it was a joy and, indeed, a challenge, to write a work for both him and an instrument of such beauty and agility."It Takes Two for euphonium and brass band recieved its premiere on November 29th 2009 in Swansea's Brangwyn Hall performed by David Childs and the Cory Band conducted by Dr. Robert Childs, and can be heard on Doyen CD262 Moto Perpetuo.Other individual movements and the complete Concerto for Euphonium with brass band accompniament are available from Prima Vista Musikk. Orchestral and wind band versions are available from Boosey and Hawkes.

    One September Morning - Robert Eaves - -

    ''Having been working with the Black Dyke Band during the course of 2016, I had been impressed by the sheer artistry and musicianship of two of their star soloists - Zoe Hancock and Katrina Marzella - and decided that I would write a little duet for them, as a surprise! Thus, the title of this short, and hopefully attractive, piece came about from the fact that I literally wrote it one morning in September 2016. Thereupon I took it to my next scheduled session with the band for a read-through with Zoe and Katrina and, and soon we recorded it together. A very happy process and memorable outcome for all concerned!"- Robert Eaves

    Romanza from Euphonium Concerto - Karl Jenkins - -

    Romanza is taken from Karl Jenkins' Euphonium Concerto, an extended work given its world premiere by euphonium soloist David Childs and the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Owain Arwel Hughes in St. David's Hall, Cardiff during the last night of the 2009 Welsh Proms.Romanza, which would normally form the second movement of the concerto, is reminiscent of Jenkin's Benedictus from The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace.

We had been talking about it for some time and happily it all came together in 2009.

    The Juggler from Euphonium Concerto - Karl Jenkins - -

    The Juggler is taken from Karl Jenkins' Euphonium Concerto, an extended work given its world premiere by euphonium soloist David Childs and the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Owain Arwel Hughes in St. David's Hall, Cardiff during the last night of the 2009 Welsh Proms.The Juggler, would normally form the first movement of the concerto, but it stands alone very well as an individual work for euphonium and band. The music is episodic beginning with with a minimalist texture over which the euphonium "tweets" three short calls before riffing around. It is broken up by a 'circus waltz' exploiting the agility and vituosity of the euphonium in a fun context.On his eagerness to compose the work for David, Karl Jenkins stated, "It's been a privilege to write for such a virtuoso performer. We had been talking about it for some time and happily it all came together in 2009.

    EXULTATE DEO (Brass Band Set) - Paul Sharman

    Translated as 'Praise the Lord', 'Exultate Deo' was conceived as an overture of praise to God. It brings together three contrasting songs of praise; 'Praise Him!', 'We are here to praise you' and 'Then will the very rocks cry out'. The bold opening uses the tune 'Gerontius' to which the words, 'Praise to the holiest in the height' are associated while the music concludes with the phrase 'Praise my soul, the King of Heaven'.
