    There's a video of Dyke performing it on Youtube, too - awesome.
  4. Played it at summer school and heard it on Saturday at Pontins with the British army brass band. I am still in awe of the piece and so moved by it. Just WOW.

    I have to say i find it somewhat underwhealming - but I've only played it twice so will keep an open mind for now.

    Was this with the Grenadier Guards Band?
    If so, who was the arranger?

    I think it was - from what Barry was saying advertising FNIMN. Don't know if its an arrangement or a re-orchestration by Paul Lovatt-Couper. Its published by Prima Vista Musikk Ltd.

    BTW either WES or A Christmas Finale (both of which we're playing) has got the Xylophone part transposed - so its in completely the wrong key!

    Fantastic piece of music, but i can see it becoming a top section irish blessing

    Every band wants it, every band plays it,although it is quite technically difficult

    No... they were written in the wrong rhythm :oops:

    Must have been some kind of fractal time-delay effect that caused Bs to come out as Bbs as a result of the wrong rhythm then...

    Where Eagles Sing is a great bit of writing.

    I like Paul Lovatt-Cooper's similar composition, Walking With Heroes, too. Really good to start a concert with; as it was at Black Dyke's Gala Concert at the Nationals this year.
