    That 'wow' moment

    It was in Birmingham! Dove Descending was our own choice. Just as we were setting up the stage, the CD player we had brought with us for the bird noises decided to get stage fright and would not work. Me and Richard Clough were on stage for what seemed like an eternity trying to get the...

    The 158th annual British Open Brass Band Championship (2010)

    Just to add a little more confusion - the parts we played off at the Europeans only have "On the Shoulders of Giants" on the top! I've had a look at the DVD and although it's "Standing on the Shoulders of Giants" on all art-work and in the introduction by Frank Renton, you can see during the...

    The 158th annual British Open Brass Band Championship (2010)

    I like what you did there! It would be funny to see someone try to argue that point! However, it must be a typing error on someone's part unfortunately. When we played it at Cory it was called "On the Shoulders of Giants", it's currently for sale on Peter Graham's website as "On the Shoulders...

    The once & future king study scores

    Sorry about that Keith. We thought about it long and hard about doing this and initially we got the ‘it’s never been done before - it won’t work’ type answers. But we eventually got some positive feed-back and decided to do it any way - and well received it has been to! Just a reminder to...

    Regionals 2009: Championship Section Test Piece: Salute to Youth, Gilbert Vinter

    I can confirm that it is jingles (or sleigh bells). There are many discrepancies between the score and part, both new and old. For example; * The wood block rhythm in the first movement is wrong on the part but correct in the score * At the end of the last movement (just before the 4/4)...
