    Silent Night

    One of the most well-known and loved Christmas carols, Silent Night is a carol everyone knows. In this brass band arrangement, audiences will love the warm chords and gorgeous styling of this brass band music.Composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber, Silent NIght has been recorded and sung by many singers and music groups, including the popular Bing Crosby version in 1935 and the 1990 version by Sinead O'Connor.Stille Nacht (Silent Night) was first performed in 1818 at a church in the Austrian town of Oberndorf on Christmas Eve. The words to Silent Night had been written as a poem in 1816 by Father Joseph Mohr. On the Christmas Eve of 1818, Mohr showed his poem to Gruber, who asked him to compose a melody for it for that night's mass. The church in which they were in was evetually destroyed by continual flooding and the new chapel was named after the carol (Silent Night Chapel).Sadly, the original manuscript has been lost over the years, so Mohr's contribution was largely forgotten about. Indeed, many thought that Beethoven, Haydn or Mozart had a hand in it. However, a manuscript tuned up in 1995 that showed Mohr's handwriting, which was dated circa 1820. It stated the true author of the words to be Mohr. Silent Night remains one of the most popular carols every written and has been translated into over 300 languages and featured as the subject of many films. It has been arranged many times and was even sung on the battlefield during World War 1 during the CHristmas truce.

    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" Grade: 3rd Section and above

    Revelation (Score and Parts) - Wilby, Philip

    Symphony for Double Brass on a theme of Purcell 1995 marked the tercentenary of Purcell’s death, and my new score Revelation has been written as a tribute to his music and the ornate and confident spirit of his age. There are five major sections: 1 Prologue 2 Variations on a ground bass I 3 Fugue 4 Variations on a ground bass II 5 Epilogue and Resurrection The score uses many features of the Baroque Concerto Grosso, and arranges players in two equal groups from which soloists emerge to play in a variety ofvirtuoso ensembles. It quotes freely from Purcell’s own piece Three Parts on a Ground in which he has composed a brilliant sequence of variations over a repeating six-note bass figure. This original motif can be heard most clearly beneath the duet for Cornet 5 and Soprano at the beginning of the 2nd section. There is, of course, a religious dimension to Revelation as the title suggests, and the score is prefaced by lines by the 17th century poet John Donne. His Holy Sonnet paraphrases the Book of Revelation in which the dead are raised at the sounds of the last trumpet. Donne’s trumpets are themselves placed stereophonically “. . . At the round Earth’s imagined corners” and it is this feature that today’s players represent as they move around the performing area. Their final apocalyptic fanfares can be heard at the close of the score, as Purcell’s music re-enters in a lasting tribute to England’s first composer of genius. Philip Wilby September 1995 At the round Earth imagined corners, blow your trumpets, angels, and arise, arise from death, you numberless infinities Of souls, and to your scattered bodies go. All whom the flood did, and fire shall o ‘erthrow All whom war, dearth, age, agues, tyrannies, Despair, law, chance hath slain, and you whose eyes Shall Behold God, and never taste death woe. John Donne after Revelation Ch. 11 v.15
