    A Hero's Return - By Douglas A. Richard

    A Hero?'s Return was written for the West Point Middle School Band, located at the United States Military Academy, West Point, NY. The opening section conveys the celebratory atmosphere of when a hero comes home to friends and family. The middle section represents the quiet tribute we pay to the fond memories of heroes no longer in our midst. The return to the initial theme welcomes not only the hero returning today, but symbolizes the hopes for the safe return of all our heroes who so bravely serve this nation. (4:10)

    JOURNEY THROUGH A JAPANESE LANDSCAPE (Percussion Solo/CB) Parts only - Musgrave, Thea

    Score available separately. Concerto for Solo Marimba and Wind Orchestra. The four movements of Journey through a Japanese Landscape are based on a series of haiku which represents an emotional journey through the four seasons. The three haiku chosen for each of the seasons provide a setting and an event; thus, the gently undulating spring sea is the background for the free, improvisatory character of the skylark. The summer grasses have buried the glorious dreams of ancient warriors and after a violent storm, a distant memory of a march is heard. An autumnal fog envelops a colossal Buddha and a lonely watcher sounds one gong after another while a cricket acts as a grave keeper. Glass wind chimes introduce the frozen winter landscape. The march returns, then sleet and snow build to a big storm. Out of the silence that follows, echoes of the first movement suggest the return of spring and so, rebirth. (Grade 4) Duration: 23:00

    PLAIN MAN'S HAMMER, A (Novello Symphonic Band) Extra Score - Dalby, Martin

    Extra Score only. The whole shape of A Plain Man's Hammer owes something to classical sonata form. It is a two part form of which the first is an exposition containing two tonally contrasted subjects and the second contains a development section where harmonies move rapidly towards a recapitulation of the two original subjects, this time the contrast being reconciled in the home key. The first large section of A Plain Man's Hammer is an exposition containing two main ideas and other material associated with them. Development is replaced by a parade of incomplete parodies: a waltz almost in the style of Chopin; a sort of Tango; a Mahlerian march; something close to Janacek; a cheap imitation of a Flamenco; a corruption of Oranges and Lemons; a pop song; a military march which gets somewhat out of hand; a Viennese Waltz to set your feet tripping, and an even cheaper imitation of a Flamenco. At the end of the work the associated material of the opening reappears in maturity; the major ideas play a subservient role, reappearing only in the final coda. Duration: 14 mins.

    To A New Dawn Wind Band Set (Score & Parts)

    To A New Dawn was commissioned by the United States Continental Army Band - Captain Timothy J. Holtan, Commander and Conductor.The brief was for a piece to celebrate the 3rd Millennium and it was the composer's aim to provide a work which, as well as looking forward to the challenges of the new century, also contained moments of reflection about the last one.After a bright introduction featuring the trumpets a perky theme, passing quickly through several keys, appears on the woodwinds. A solo trumpet takes up a new theme over bubbling quavers (eighth notes) and this leads to a rhythmic figure on low clarinets, followed by the upper woodwinds. A brass interlude follows and, after a short bridge passage, an oboe takes up a contrasting legato tune that builds to a climax.An andante section follows with solos for horn and flugel horn (or trumpet) and a florid flute cadenza. A passionate climax leads back to the faster music and, eventually, to a full recapitulation, revisiting the earlier material before a lively coda close the work as it began. 09:40

    Maiden Voyage (Hymn for a Ship of Sorrow) - Peter Meechan

    Maiden Voyage (Hymn for a Ship of Sorrow) was commissioned by Archbishop Beck School, Liverpool, UK, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. The city of Liverpool and its surrounding areas was ubiquitous with The Titanic; many of the ship's builders were from Liverpool (although it was built in Belfast), the crew of the ship had a large Liverpudlian contingent as had the onboard musicians. The ship's bell also has a strong connection having been made by Utley's, a St. Helens based company.The work is constructed as a series of short hymns and songs - perhaps in memory of those who died 100 years ago, or maybe the memories of those on The Titanic as they were about to perish. As I was commissioned by a school in Liverpool, I wanted Maiden Voyage to have a clear connection to the city - so the work begins and ends with a sounding of the ship's bell.Maiden Voyage (Hymn for a Ship of Sorrow) was commissioned by, and dedicated to, Bruce Hicks and The Archbishop Beck School Wind Band

    A story about the two crucifixes - Cedric Van Hof

    A story about the two crucifixes - Cedric Van Hof - 10'30'' - BVT135 In 1936 a chapel 'the Kruiskapel' was built in the town of Eksaarde (Belgium). This at the exact location where in 1317 two miraculous crucifixes were found by a certain 'Baudouin with the Nine Pounds'. Suddenly his spade hit a hard object: a cross, and when Baudouin pulled it out of the ground, blood came out. After that he found a second cross, two Roman bowls and a spear. As soon as he brought those mysterious objects home, all bells of the church of Eksaarde started to ring spontaneously. Baudouin informed the priest, who told it to Lord of Eksaarde, after which the two crosses were transferred in procession to the village church. When the parade passed the village square, two lumberjacks were at work there. "Oh", said one,"Baudouin with the Nine Pounds has found the old God." Suddenly his head stood backwards on his trunk and only got back to normal when the man had openly shown repentance. The lord of Eksaarde took one of the crosses with him, but it was found next morning alongside the other. From this the people deduced that the two crosses would be honoured in Eksaarde.
