Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 4 September 2022


Hello Brass Banders

Here is another two-hours of brass band music from this week's Sunday Bandstand programme.

'Anonymous Romance' is a work for guitar, also known as "Spanish Romance", "Romance de Espana", "Romance de Amor", "Romance of the Guitar", "Romanza" and "Romance d'Amour" among other names.

Origins and authorship remain in doubt. It is suspected originally of being a solo guitar work from the 19th century.

It has been attributed to at least nine composers. The question of authorship has probably been propagated by three main reasons: unclaimed by its true author, possibly to avoid paying copyright fees, and the desire of publishing companies to claim the valuable copyright of this world-famous piece.

The style of the piece is parlour music of the late 19th century in Spain or South America.

The earliest recording of "Romance" is on a cylinder featuring two guitarists and dated sometime between 1897 and 1901.

The brass band arrangement is by the late Darrol Barry (our featured photograph) and is just one from the legacy of music he left us all to enjoy and it is on the show today.
