    Pomp & Circumstance March No.4 - Edward Elgar - Phillip Littlemore

    Pomp & Circumstance March No. 4 was completed in June 1907, shortly after his fiftieth birthday. Like the first, it contains an equally impressive ‘big tune’ in the trio section, but it also matches No.1 in that it has a lively, rhythmic march element to envelope it. Unlike No.1 though, Elgar cleverly superimposes one on top of the other for the final, extended coda. Several attempts have been made to fit words to the main tune, the first of which were by the composer’s wife, Alice, for her song The King’s Way to celebrate the opening of a road in London. The music was then set to Alfred Noye’s Song of Victory before a later attempt to make a patriotic Song of Liberty for World War II by the author A P Herbert. Item Code: TPBB-048 Duration: 4'50"

    Cadillac Of The Skies - John Williams

    Cadillac of the Skies is taken from the score to 1987 film Empire of the Sun, by John Williams. As Jim, played by a young Christian Bale, watches in amazement as the P-51 aircrafts attack the camp, he is overcome by the majestic spectacle of the aircraft and screams out joyously, "P-51, Cadillac of the Skies!" with the serene and beautiful music of the scene being wonderfully juxtaposed with the surroundings of war.

    Broadway Boogie - Dave Collins - -

    Broadway Boogie was commissioned by Leigh Baker and was premiered by the Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Brass Band as part of their 2014 Brass in Concert programme at the Sage, Gateshead.The work is inspired by Piet Mondriaan's Broadway Boogie-Woogie, which was his last fully completed picture. Mondriaan arrived in New York in 1940, one of the many European artists who moved to the United States to escape World War II. He fell in love with the city immediately, as well as Boogie-Woogie music - to which he was introduced on his first evening in New York.Broadway Boogie is an exciting, dynamic work that is directly influenced by the work of Piet Mondriaan. The atomized bands of stuttering chromatic pulses, interrupted by light grey, create paths through the work suggesting the city's grid, the movement of traffic, and blinking electric lights - as well as the rhythm of jazz.

    Silent Night - Franz Gruber - Darius Battiwalla

    In 1816, a Roman Catholic priest called Josef Mohr composed a short six-stanza poem for his Christmas service which he entitled Stille Nacht. On Christmas Eve in 1818 the church organ at St Nicholas Church, Oberndorf had broken down and he happened to show his organist and choirmaster Franz Gruber the poem he had written, wondering if it could be set to music which would not require the organ.Gruber spent that afternoon composing, what would become the most loved Christmas carol of all time. It was first performed that very Christmas Eve, with the church choir and Gruber accompanying them on guitar.Although Gruber's original melody has altered little since 1818, it was originally performed as a sprightly 6/8 dance. Over the years the melody has been slowed down and we now recognise it most commonly as a gentle, meditative lullaby.The song's lyrics have been translated into around 140 different languages and it has been used extensively, in countless guises all over the world.Perhaps its most poignant use however was during the First World War Christmas Truce in 1914, where it was sung simultaneously by French, English and German troops stationed on the front line, being the only carol they all new.This new arrangement for brass band yet again breathes new life into this timeless classic. Lush harmonies and its reflective texture will make this a welcome addition to any festive program.
