    By Bill Willis

    Composed for the Baritone players of Bournemouth Concert Band, this is a rare work for what has been, until recently one of the most under-rated instruments in the Brass Band. Marked “Allegro Giocoso”, this lively piece shows off the band and allows the soloists to demonstrate their melodic and technical skill.

    Full score & parts: £17.95

    A Gaelic Blessing
    By John Rutter

    John Rutter, born in 1945, has become a favorite amongst all sacred music lovers. His anthems and Christmas pieces all have a rich melodic base, and this piece is no exception. Alternatively known as Deep Peace, the gentle nature of both the words and melody have made this piece a firm favourite at christenings, weddings and funerals.

    Full score & parts: £15.95

    Hungarian Polka
    Arr. Bill Willis

    Known for his melodic themes, and powerful orchestrations, this Hungarian Polka (Eljen a Magyar) from Richard Strauss is one of his lesser known works. Fast and furious, a great way to start (or finish!) a concert.

    Full score & parts: £17.95

    With The Sun On His Face
    By Kevin Riley

    Sub-titles “For Jamie, Who Liked To Lay In The Sun”, this happy little piece demands no major technical work from the band. With great parts for the soprano, xylophone (not essential) and a little bass trombone solo to end with, this is a welcome addition to any bands library.

    Full score & parts: £15.95
