-----------------------------------------

This exciting new 22-minute concert suite for Brass Sextet has been composed during the months of lockdown charting the feelings of a nation, with seven movements playable by 6 (or more) players. The music was composed with the intention for players to perform either together live in a small group, in isolation by way of a virtual performance (downloadable backing tracks are available to play along to) and ultimately, to give players something to enjoy as we all miss our brass band families. This concert suite is the perfect addition to all bands’ libraries at a time when rehearsals are limited. Several of the movements are already in preparation for a full band edition to be released at a later date:

  • Movement 1: FANFARE: The Call of the Band

  • Movement 2: March of the Antibodies

  • Movement 3: Solidarity

  • Movement 4: Lazy Days

  • Movement 5: Hymn for Carers (Dedicated to the NHS & Care Workers)

  • Movement 6: Army of the Keyworkers

  • Movement 7: CELEBRATION: Return of the Band

    Windsor Variations
    For Brass Band & Percussion

    The first major Concert Work/Test Piece by Gavin Somerset for brass band takes the familiar tune, St. George's Windsor (Elvey) and gives us a highly enjoyable opus, full of music with which players & MDs can fully express themselves. Often sang to the harvest hymn, Come, Ye Thankful People Come, Its majesty and motifs make this an enjoyable piece to both play and listen to. The work’s primary focus is on melody and music with all sections of the band involved in bringing this piece to life. At harvest time or any other, this is a great new feature work for the brass band repertoire.

    Keep The Rhythm Going
    Keep the Rhythm Going was written for Abingdon Concert Band during the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic as a tribute to musicians around the world who found ways to play together virtually in order to 'keep the rhythm going'. This exciting piece will be a great opener for any concert or contest programme and is available for both brass band and wind band. When performing the wind band arrangement the Cor Anglais, Eb Clarinet and Alto Clarinet parts are optional and can be omitted without affecting the music. The premiere performance can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/b6f7zRzxI7k View More
    O Isis Und Osiris
    Eb Bass Solo The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte) is one of Mozart’s most successful operas, premiered only 2 months before the composer’s early death. Skilfully arranged now as an Eb Tuba solo (with an Euphonium solo part as an alternative option), this is a chance for your band’s tuba player to show the instruments in a new light, not often seen on the concert stage. The Aria O Isis Und Osiris is performed at the start of the second act of the opera and allows the soloist to show off the more lyrical and operatic side of the instrument. View More
    The Little Beggarman
    This show stopping arrangement of the famous traditional Irish Folk Tune is the perfect showcase for bands looking to add something impressive to their concert or entertainment contest programmes. For those familiar with Peter Graham’s ‘Gaelforce’, Adrian Horn’s take on The Little Beggarman is of a similar vein complete with a lovely slow middle movement. The two outer movements are full of excitement and a great workout for your band’s ensemble playing. One audiences will love. View More
    Calon Lan
    A new take on this this famous Welsh song is the perfect way to introduce your band to the concert stage. With stage directions, the band appears over the familiar 'Bolero' side drum rhythm one section at a time. Calon Lan has as in recent years become associated with the Welsh Rugby Union, being sung before almost every Test match involving the Welsh national team. This arrangement is accessible to Youth bands as well as senior bands and a lovely way to add something different to your concerts. View More
    Anchor For The Soul
    Cornet & Euphonium Duet Commissioned by The City of Hull Band for their 2019 Brass In Concert programme, this evocative cornet and euphonium duet pays tribute to the trawlermen who lost their lives in three tragedies that took place in early 1968. The work comprises of two seafaring hymns, "Eternal Father Strong to Save" and "Nearer My God to Thee", using the tunes they are most commonly sung to in the 21st. The title of the work was inspired by the Hull seaman's mission, who in their literature describe themselves as an 'anchor for the soul' of the Humber shipping crews and their families. View More
    Poppy Fields
    In Remembrance It was while looking out upon the twelve-thousand graves at the Tyne Cot memorial, of which over eight-thousand commemorate the lives of unknown soldiers, that the composer felt compelled to compose a piece which encapsulated the feeling of bothpeaceful serenity and great loss that one has when visiting such a place. Throughout the work, images of the 'Last Post' are heard in the distance, as the music reflects upon the catastrophic events which took place in Europe and around the world during the first part of the twentieth-century. Under this hauntingly familiar melody, a simple hymn-like chorale plays and is soon heard overlapped with the opening material in an attempt to unite the feeling of calm and of pain that a place of great remembrance such as Tyne Cot invokes within us all. *note – the opening Marimba part can be substituted for Xylophone/Vibraphone to create a sustained sound View More
