    Home of Legends - Paul Lovatt-Cooper

    Home of Legends was commissioned by, and composed for the 'Brass Band Summer School'.The music pays homage to the many legends who have been involved with this prestigious institution throughout its history. The BBSS staff are regarded as some of the finest brass players in the world and former Musical Directors and Presidents include the great Harry Mortimer, Philip Jones, Roy Newsome and Richard Evans who directed the world premiere of this work.The music starts with an off-stage trumpet or cornet representing the memory of great players from the past. The band then enters quietly and the piece gradually builds in the style of a majestic musical procession to the final chord designed to show the fantastic sound of a brass band in full flow.In recent times this work has been adopted by the world famous Black Dyke Band from Queensbury - a genuine home of legends for over 150 years.

    Lament - to the Unknown - Andrew Stevenson

    Lament ? to the Unknown was written in the memory of Rob Southwick, who passed away in Easter 2012. Rob was a talented musician who worked with many local music and drama groups around Doncaster; this piece pays homage to the immense musicianship and talent of Rob.The piece itself is very simple, both rhythmically and technically. The tempo is slow and calm, representing a reflective hymn. The basis of the piece is built on dissonant chords and atmospheric percussion which creates a wonderful soundscape of colour. The falling fourths of the distant trumpet calls emulate feelings of sadness and mourning and the somewhat disjointed melodies give the piece a mysterious sound. The piece grows to an emotional climax before settling down for a chilling end.

    Nobody Does it Better - Marvin Hamlisch

    Carly Simon first took this song into the charts in 1977, following the release of Ian Fleming's 10th James Bond blockbuster, The Spy Who Loved Me.Back then, Sir Roger Moore played '007', with a characterisation that was full of debonair charm and sparkling wit. Having played 'Bond' from 1972 to 1985, and appearing in six movies, he was, for many, the definitive James Bond. But sadly, on 23rdMay 2017, he passed away.Commissioned for the Flowers Band to premiere at Brass in Concert 2017, Paul Lovatt-Cooper pays tribute to Sir Roger Moore through this new setting, combining hauntingly reflective sounds with the type of exhilarating, powerhouse riffs, synonymous with a James Bond soundtrack.
