    Welsh Echoes - Andrew Duncan

    Commissioned by The Charles Church Camberley Band in 2007 as a gift to mark the 90th Birthday of their previous conductor, Gerallt Hughes. The piece has been well received, having been performed by Grimethorpe Colliery Band and by Brighouse & Rastrick Band on Listen To The Band.The striking Welsh folk tunes, Sospan Fach, David of the White Rock and Watching the Wheat are all woven into this delightful composition. There is a feature for the solo cornet in David of the White Rock, and some nice touches with a saucepan and wooden spoon in the Percussion to make Sospan Fach true to its name (Little Saucepan!).The contrasting styles this composition offers with the incorporation of the melodies make this piece an ideal concert work and has already proven popular with audiences of all nationalities!

    Hunt the Hare - Elgar Howarth

    Hunt the Hare was written for and dedicated to the Cory Band from Wales and was first performed in New York as part of America's bi-centennial celebrations in 1976. Grimethorpe Colliery Band, from England, accompanied Cory on the tour, they both had mining connections and the tour was sponsored by the American Mining Unions.Elgar Howarth has cleverly combined the Welsh jig Hunting the Hare with a quintessentially English tune, A Hunting We Will Go. The work is in the style of a patrol with both bands sounding in the distance, gradually getting nearer and nearer until they pass and gradually disappear into the distance. However, the difference with this patrol is that it combines two tunes in two different keys. Elgar Howarth punctuates the English and Welsh flavour with patriotic tunes from both countries and also utilises bi-tonality to celebrate bi-centennial celebrations.
