In Stock. This creative fanfare utilizes a solo alphorn, creative percussion writing and brilliant fanfare passages to take the listener on a musical journey. This is a new composition which takes the traditional brass band sound in a new direction. This work is bold yet mysterious and talented composer Ronald Royer uses many colours in his orchestration to generate a powerful effect which audiences are sure to find stunning.
The idea for this march originated from a conversation that took place in the pine forests of Camp Borden, Ontario, during Basic Recruit Course with the Canadian Armed Forces. The composer listened as one of his instructors spoke passionately about the possibility of a new kind of army, an army that would bring peace to the world rather than war. And even though the day when that goal is truly accomplished still lies, unfortunately, sometime in the future, it is true that the honourable role of peacekeeping has now become a major focus of both Reserve and Regular armed forces in Canada.
This is a traditional South African folksong that has been adapted and arranged for brass band. The authentic rhythmic backgrounds performed on a variety of percussion instruments add colour and interest. This is exciting music to add something really unique to your next concert.
