    Rhapsody in Brass - Dean Goffin

    Rhapsody in Brass is in three movements and was written for the British Open Championships in 1949, held at Belle Vue in Manchester. The contest winners were Fairey Aviation Works Band under the baton of Harry Mortimer. Eric Ball came second with Ransome & Marles and Stanley Boddington 3rd with Munn and Felton Band. Rhapsody in Brass had the unusual distinction of being written as a test piece by a Salvation Army composer. Eric Ball's Resurgam was the only other piece to achieve that dual personality in that era.Dean Goffin was born in 1916 in Wellington, New Zealand, son of Henry Goffin, a Salvation Army officer and composer. At 19 he was appointed Bandmaster of the Wellington South Band and when World War II started, he enlisted in the New Zealand Armed Forces where he became Bandmaster of the 20th Infantry Battalion and later the 4th Brigade Band. During the time he served with them in the Middle East and Europe, he composed and arranged numerous pieces among which Rhapsody in Brass and the march Bel Hamid, later adapted for Salvation Army use and renamed Anthem of the Free.After the war, Dean kept on composing and his work was featured by the Wellington South Band. Later he transferred to Timaru for another job and became Bandmaster there. He was studying music at the time and as he wanted to take part in a competition for devotional selections for Salvation Army use, he sent some of his compositions to the International Headquarters. When Rhapsody for Brass was chosen as the test-piece for the British Open Championships, people at the Salvation Army started asking questions about the lack of publications of his work. It was discovered that the pieces submitted for the competition didn't meet the exact criteria. Among these pieces was one of his most appealing works The Light of the World which was published a year later, in 1950, the same year as he completed his Bachelor of Music studies at Otagu University.After entering the Salvation Army Training College in Wellington with his wife, Marjorie, Dean was in 1956 appointed National Bandmaster in the British Territory. Later he became National Secretary for Bands and Songster Brigades and in this period he organised the yearly festival in the Royal Albert Hall and was responsible for the national music schools in the UK. Dean returned to his home country in 1966 and to mark the centenary of the Salvation Army in New Zealand he was knighted by the Queen in 1983. Sir Dean Goffin died on 23 January 1984.

    Crimson Moon - Dale Vail

    Crimson Moon is a work written for Solo Trombone and Brass Band. The work was inspired by a red moon that appeared over Wellington in 2014. Crimson Moon depicts a fictional theory that the colour was caused by a raging fire on the moon's surface. The trombone soloist is a pair of eyes experiencing the phenomenon first hand, depicting the sights, excitement, and adrenalin that could be invoked by such an event. The band is the environment around the soloist, unpredictable and exciting.

    Reflections - Kenneth Young

    A deeply moving, beautiful, extended work composed following the death of Norman Goiffin - brother of Sir Dean Goffin and long time conductor of the famous Onslow Brass Band (now known as Wellington Brass Band). This isn't overly difficult, from a technical perspective, but requires musical maturity and stamina. It sits in the same musical class as Elgar Howarh's In Memorium RK, Dean Goffin's The Light of the World and Morley Calvert's For Our Transgressions. A real musical masterpiece that will move performers and audiences alike.

Here is the first stanza:We worked in the heat and the thick black dust,Sticks to your skin like a burnt pie crust.We rue each day the miner must,Go down in the Brunner mine.Down In The Brunner Mine is dedicated to Helen Aldred, who conducted the first performance.
