In Stock. This is a traditional South African folksong that has been adapted and arranged for concert band. The authentic rhythmic backgrounds performed on a variety of percussion instruments add colour and interest. This is exciting music to add something really different to your next concert.
This is an exciting piece based on the Welsh hymn Cwm Rhondda. Fanfares in the trumpets and woodwind descants float over the stately tune. The melody flows throughout the ensemble ranging from a smooth lyrical statement of the theme to a brilliant marcato feel. This would make a great opening to a concert.
This is an exciting concert march. This work has been dedicated to Cardinal Dougherty High School, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where the composer was the Director of Bands for several years. Great upper woodwind parts set in three-part harmony make this work more interesting than many marches. Driving bass lines and fun brass parts create a sure winner for both performers and audiences.
Composer Donald Coakley was asked, by the Pastor of St. William's Roman Catholic Church, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to write a hymn based on verses he had written about the parish's namesake. What developed is this powerful prelude. Fanfares in the trumpets, runs in the upper woodwinds and melodic material throughout the ensemble make this an excellent choice for either concert or contest use.
