Music

Here are some samples of our music from CDs that we’ve recorded over the years.

Love is Forever, Goff Richards
Written for two euphoniums, this is an original and evocative composition from this highly talented and creative musician.

On The Quarter Deck, Kenneth Alford
Dubbed the British March King, Alford served as Musical Director of The Royal Marines and probably did more to popularise the march form in this country than anyone. Written in 1917, ‘On The Quarter Deck’ was one of the first British marches to adopt the 6/8 compound time popularised by John Philip Sousa.

Concert Prelude, Philip Sparke
Concert Prelude comes from the pen of Philip Sparke, undoubtedly one of the most exciting and gifted writers for the brass band medium. Even though this is a comparatively short piece compared to so much of his work, the hallmarks of rhythmic and harmonic challenge are present nonetheless.

Castell Coch, T J Powell
This is a march by one of the best-loved writers for for brass band. Brilliant, brassy sounds abound, often dramatic and sometimes delicate, but always exciting. Castell Coch contains all the essential ingredients of a good contest march.

Music for the Royal Fireworks, Handel, arr. Denis Wright
Brass band arrangement of the Overture from Handel’s 1749 wind band suite.
