    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.

    Be Thou My Vision
    Arr. Stephen Tighe

    This famous traditional Irish melody has been arranged and described as “Three verse variations”. Building up from the beginning to a huge climax at E where the whole band explodes into the gorgeous theme. Sure your make the hairs on your neck rise!

    A Touch Of Brass
    By Gavin Somerset

    Starting with a Scottish style dance, this piece explores the versatility of the Brass Band. From Scherzo to Swing, this piece has them all, an audience pleaser and one for all the band to stay alert in, and the conductor to add their own interpretations. The percussion section also has a busy part to play (although the Timpani & Xylo/Glock parts can be omitted). An ideal concert item for all concerned.

    Home Away From Home
    By Phil Coulter
    Brass Band

    This gorgeous melody has been made famous by the virtuoso flautist James Galway, popularised on Classic FM and now arranged for brass band with a solo cornet taking the starring role. A perfect concert item, such a simple melody, but heart warming and playable by most bands.

    An American Tail
    Composed By James Horner

    For the first time ever, the music from Steven Spielberg’s animated story has been arranged into a full suite for brass band. With hits like “Somewhere Out There”, “Dreams to Dream” and “Way Out West” all included in the suite, the music of James Horner can set emotions rolling, there is something for everyone to enjoy. With the whole concert suite lasting around 10 minutes, there are optional cuts written when if played, can cut the suite down to 6 minutes, as well as cutting out some difficult parts for lower section bands. With Wild West themes and train journey rides (and lets not forget the spoken lyrics!), this really is musical entertainment at its best.

    The Farewell Symphony
    By Joseph Haydn

    Composed in 1772, Haydn's Symphony No.45, better known as the Farewell Symphony due to the circumstances of which it was composed. Haydn's employer, Prince Nikolaus became so attracted to his Eszterhaza Castle, he spent longer and longer there each year. The court musicians were not allowed their families with them and became increasingly depressed. This symphony was composed in such a way, that during the last movement, one by one, each player blew out their candle, and crept of stage. The idea being that the prince would get the subtle hint. The next day, the court returned to Vienna! Arranged in the same way, players able to walk off one by one, a perfect ending to a concert, or first half.

    Con Brio
    By Mike Lyons

    A brand new piece, jolly and lively all the way thought. Composed in 7/8 time most of the way though, giving the players something to think about, and the audience something to enjoy. There is chance for the players to re-gain their composure during a lovely little flugel solo (thankfully, in the more common ¾ time!). The band then join in and the fun returns, getting faster and faster before another break into the Lento, where the trombones and solo horn feature. However the rousing ending isn’t far away!!! A stunning work, good fun, and enjoyable by all.

    The Victory Club
    by Gavin Somerset

    Composed for the Stocksbridge Brass Band, this fast lively concert march gets its name from the club that the band rehearse in. Written for the opening of the bands concerts at the "Victory Club" which is also home to the Stocksbridge Band Club, where the weekly concerts have grown more and more in popularity. This march is as jolly and merry as the audiences on Sunday nights!!!

    By William Elsom

    This melodic Tenor Horn solo was composed for Kate Brown of the Fulham
    Band. With moving band parts and a tuneful, yet technical solo part, this piece allows the soloist to show off their high register and technical skills whilst maintaining entertainment value for the audience. A welcome addition to any horn player’s repertoire.

    Full score & parts: £17.95
