    The link is:

    It has 4 min 11 sec duration.

    This demo has been a pain to balance, as the computerised brass mixtures of Sibelius, GPO and EWQL don`t sit comfortably together, so I hope the audio has a certain reasonability about it, to show what the piece is all about.

    (Soundcloud is the facility where anyone can submit their mp3s and any other formats. You get a nice picture also!).

    I`ve created a PDF of the score if anyone is interested,

    Sounding very good.. Nice work again sir! :clap:

    Reminds me of one of those BBC documentaries soundtracks where they go soaring over a landscape wildernesses.

    Thank you, sir! All I need now is a trombonist and a band and I can delete the demo - It`s one of my worst - brass is difficult. Did you notice the cymbal roll (somewhere in the middle) made the soloist`s sustained note wobble also? Sounded like circus music for a couple of secs. (Maybe I need lower final volume settings than the other stuff I`ve produced).
    Nevertheless, it seems to have served its purpose for you - cheers.

    Like many more, I think I`ll have to sell my soul and GIVE it away . . . . . :(
    But thank you for your kind comment Mr Wilson - very much appreciated.

    Many thanks xRinat, Glad you like it. You may view the score at my new web address:

    New, because SibeliusMusic is closing it`s `self publishing` site next month. It`s `handed over` to two people who are ex-Sibelius employees. Everyone`s a bit miffed, as the new site have stated they are not going to run a forum. The end of an era . . . . !

    Best wishes,
    Tony Wakefield

    I would just like to add my endorsement to Tony's trombone solo. It's beautifully written, and a great tribute to his obvious and proven skills as a composer.

    I`m getting one or two others like yours Barry, and can`t remember if I replied to you - I find tMP e-mail notification page a bit complicated. Anyway - my thanks to you, you`re very kind.
