Flourish was written for Philip Cobb and takes its inspiration from Virtuosity by Kenny Baker which Philip has featured with the ISB and Hendon Bands. The song Hand me down my silver trumpet is referred to in the two outer sections while the laid-back, jazzy central section features the song When the roll is called up yonder. The reason for including this song is the first line of the first verse which reads When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound. Smart thinking, eh? Well done, Paul.
