Just Buy It, it is an excellent piece of music, you won't regret and neither will the band!

Cheers!!

Well, what would you expect from someone who turned up at the wrong location to start with? :roll:
Well, I reckon said reviewer is in the minority. In any case the review looks like an adjudicator's crit at a contest, rather than a concert review!

Fabulous piece, Paul, please don't hesitate. As your principal cornet for another 5 months or so, I'd love to play it! Go on, you know you want to! ;-)

Anyone would think we don't actually speak at band! So general concensus seems to be to buy it then :D
PS Are you coming tonight?

I made that comment as a former player.
Always tired out after KT as long as you put the effort in.
What magnificent writing though.
SA music at it's best if you........oh wait....you didn't ask me.

Nick Childs so enjoyed the piece at Nottingham that he told me he would include in some of Black Dykes Christmas programmes.

Thanks for the links to World of Brass again.
I'm typing this in an easyInternet cafe in Glasgow!

[/uThe last item, massed, was the tone poem "The Kingdom Triumphant" by Eric Ball - a large religious romp. Big roll into a Romanesque fanfare right out of a big Jesus film epic, "The Robe/The Greatest Story Ever Told/Ben Hur" that style comes to mind - music by Dimitri Tiompkin. It's rather over dramatic here in auganum 4ths & 5ths. Euph's plainchant here with, "Israel/Rejoice Emanuel" shades of that Christmas tune. Great trom chords in 4ths "Israel/Emanuel" muted cornets are tight, but sounding tired. Trombones blurt again with a Tchiak-4 like fanfare. Nice gear shift via timp roll, basses now have the "Israel/Emanuel" motif and there are definite shades of Walton's Belshazzar's Feast in this (the quieter soprano-sung sections). We are now into the rolling hymn in band sections. The tutti hymn in harmony at ff is a great sound, a grand sound. But by now, the piece has gone a little too far not saying very much. A big blowout coda, sopranos finishing a good third higher than they should (I reckon) and hanging it on for good measure.

There really is no accounting for ignorance.

Why go to a Salvation Army Festival and spend the evening adjudicating it? They are in there for a differant reason and the splitometers of the brass band world really do need to start pulling their heads in ! ! !
