    Origins - Peter Meechan

    Origins is in three movements, with each movement having a different subject matter, all linked by the idea of origins: the first movement refers to musical origins; the second to the origins of life; and the final movement to the space exploration - the research of all origins. The first movement is based on a short motif, heard in the first three notes the soloist plays. These three notes cover the interval of a minor third (an interval that often plays a crucial role in my music) on which the whole concerto is built. The soloist and accompaniment interplay freely throughout the opening section, before an ostinato accompaniment appears - over which the soloist sounds a long legato melody. A short cadenza follows and a return to the opening material leads the movement to an end. The second movement, titled Harry's Song, is - as tradition dictates - a slow movement. Happy and reflective in nature, the main melody was written on the evening that my closest friend, Mark Bousie (a fine euphoniumist himself), and his wife Jayne, had their first child - Harry Bousie. It seemed only fitting that this song should be written for Harry in celebration. The final movement brings me back to a lifelong fascination with space, and in this particular movement, the Space Shuttle Discovery. Having completed 39 missions (including flying the Hubble telescope in to orbit), and spent a total of 365 days in space, SS Discovery made its final voyage in 2011 and was taken to the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. in April 2012. This final movement, titled Discovery, pays tribute to the great shuttle whose missions inspired millions across the generations. Origins was commissioned by Marco Schneider, Adrian Schneider and the Dunshan Symphonic Wind Orchestra, Beijing, China.

    A Thames Journey - Phillip Littlemore

    The journey begins at the source of the River Thames at Kemble in Wiltshire - a horn solo introduces the main theme, Through the Groves , an eighteenth-century Wiltshire melody. A cornet fanfare announces the start proper, and the journey moves into Oxfordshire for morros dancing and then to Oxford itself, with, its dreaming spires and steeple bells. Trombones and basses pay tribute to the World Poohsticks Championships befor we reach Henley, and hints of a well-known boating song. We then travel through Windsor to Runneymede, where the Magna Carta was signed in 1215, and on to Hampton Court to hear henry VIII's Greensleeves . The Lass of Richmond Hill is heard through Barnes, where Gustav Holst lived, and hints of Jupiter sound and a tip of the hat to Lambeth as Big ben comes into view. Nostalgically London Bridge is remembered before arriving at Greenwich - starting point of many a heroic voyage. Smelling the sea salt in the air as the journey reaches its end, the Wiltshire melody proudly annouces our arrival at the ocean - the 'Thames Journey' is complete. This arrangement has been recorded by the Leyland Band, conducted by Michael Fowles, and appears on the CD The Alchymist’s Journal .?A sound clip of the piece can be found here Item Code: 0-571-56785-1 Duration: c.9'30"
