ZEPHYRUS - The Big Blow March Due for published release on 10 February 2007. Relive the record setting moment with a complete band set of the music used for The Big Blow 2007 event. Zephyrus (named after the Greek God of the West Winds) is the replacement title for this original work by Andrew Duncan. As one of the Official Partners of the event The Music Company specially commissioned this piece from Andrew to appropriately mark the historic occasion. Zephyrus (The Big Blow March) has received great acclaim from those who were there and the event conductor, Frank Renton, offered a very positive response when he led the largest brass band in the world to play it! It starts with a traditional march style, upbeat and positive with a touch of pomp and circumstance. It then develops into a Trio section which offers an African style lilt, making the link to the inspiration behind the event and the writing of this piece. The march lasts for approximately 5 minutes and includes optional percussion parts to enhance the African element. A donation is being made by The Music Company towards The Big Blow's charity focus for every band set sold.
