    Congratulations to the winners in all sections!

    Thank you for the kind comments about our (Flixton's) performance.

    We played "Renaissance"

    Boarshurst played "Diamond Heritage"

    Hoover (Bolton) played "Variations for Brass Band"

    Blackpool Brass played "Trittico"

    Vernon Building Society Poynton also played "Trittico"

    Wingates played "Dances and Arias"

    Nelson Brass played "Tam O'Shanter's Ride"

    Parr (Richardson Ltd) St Helens played "Facets of Glass"

    They are the only pieces I heard or know of
     
  17. Oldham Band (Lees) played Divertimento, the 4th Section Area Test Piece.


    PS - Nice to see Facets of Glass getting an airing, cracking piece!

    Middleton played Purcell Variations (blinding performance if I say so myself!), Eccleston played Tam O'Shanters Ride, Greenfield played Oceans and I heard one band (very sorry, I forgot who you are!) played Call Of (To?) The Righteous. Never heard of piece before and the announcer kinda burbled the title so I didn't catch it properly. Nice piece though! As for other sections, I think Blackburn played Essence of Time and Alliance played Rienzi.

    Hats off to Alliance, well done boys. Sheer class John - I stand in awe!!
