Cheers, all the best.
all views are my own and not a reflection of any band/ensemble that I am a member of.
Another vote for Pete Meechan's 'Legend of King Arthur'. Super piece... good luck to all the baritone players though!!
If you're looking for 'contemporary' music for brass bands I don't think you can look past 'Destroy, Trample, As Swiftly As She' (Gavin Higgins) or 'Waiting For A Pain Hit' (Paul McGhee), both groundbreaking and (IMO) terrific works... and both of which went down an absolute bomb on the continent but I suspect would still be met with bewilderment and cries of witchcraft this side of the channel!
........fancy a bit of Tallis Variations myself..........
I had a dream it was variations on a ninth (a bit easy for championship I know). told a colleague from band who said he'd had the same dream................. how spooky is that?
