    Celebrare Celeberrime - Phillip Littlemore

    Celebrare Celeberrime: to celebrate to the full and with the greatest speed. This title appeals as a general philosophy of living one's life to the fullest. In the context of such a short work the intention is to lead, as quickly as possible, to a sense of joy and excitement without dwelling on the grandiose. The finale of this little, joyous work is intended to sound precipitous rather than declamatory, hopefully leading the audience on to anything that might follow.

    Keystone Kops - Carl Davis - Phillip Littlemore

    The Keystone Kops was a series of silent comedies featuring an incompetent group of policemen. They first appeared in the 1912 film Hoffmeyer's Legacy but it was the 1913 feature The Bangville Police that confirmed their popularity. The Keystone Kops were renowned for making mistakes, particularly with a great deal of energy and activity, and all done with a major lack of coordination. Carl Davis's energetic theme provides a fitting musical portrait of a silverscreen phenomenon. A soundclip of this piece can be found here Item Code:?0-571-56653-7 Duration: 2'40" Grade: 4

    Long Road - Phillip Littlemore

    Eriks Eswenvalds' Long Road has the simple sincerity of a hymn yet is is both beautiful and lush. At the midway point a gentle susurration of bell-sounds, descant recorders and tin whistles appear over sustained brass. There is a brief downwards shift of a third, followed by an elated return to the home key before the evanescent tinkling ushers the piece to its close. Phillip Littlemore has here created a vivid new version for concert band. Item Code: EP68714 Duration: 5'10" Grade: 4
