Update: March Card Series

E-mail Print PDF
Here's an update on my long overdue 'March Card' series:

Many of you will know that due to flooding and other disasters back in 2012 I lost a considerable amount of music. I am pleased to say that with the assistance of the South West Comms Band in Lympstone (and Claire Luford in particular) I have now managed to recover the majority of this work, and am pleased to announce that my 'March Card Series' of pieces suitable for adding to marches for static use on parade, at fetes or wherever music stands are not avaiable, is now available.

Titles will continue to be added, and many of my listed existing works can also be produced in A5 landscape 'march card' format. Each standard set includes laminated parts in case of inclement weather.

The list includes:
Auld Lang Syne
A Bicycle Made for Two (Daisy, Daisy)
Fanfare and The National Anthem (Jacobs arr. Colin G Dance)
I Vow to Thee My Country (in 3/4)
World In Union (in 4/4)
Ireland's Call
Land of Hope and Glory (from 'The Coda')
Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag
Rule Britannia
Swing Low Sweet Chariot
There'll Always Be An England
Tomahawk Chop (Exeter Chiefs chant)
Battle Hymn of the Republic
20th Century Fox Fanfare
Red White and Blue (Patriotic Singalong)
The Twelve Days of Christmas

Just added:
Happy! (from Despicable Me 2)
and Peacherine Rag by Scott Joplin

A Year of Faith

I'm very pleased that after being recommended by Dan Callow at One Life Music, I'm in the process of transcribing all eight songs from Andy Severyn's album 'A Year of Faith'.

I'll be producing piano and voice sheet music to enable Andy to spread the Word to schools and colleges everywhere.

Check out the link and buy his album - you'll be glad you did!



Exeter Symphony Orchestra concert

E-mail Print PDF

Having received the music for this concert yesterday, I can safely say that it's going to be a challenge! Yes, I know the Holst very well indeed, but Vaughan William's Symphony No.6 in E minor is new to me - well at least on tuba it is! As ever with his music, this is breathtaking in it's harmonic complexity, and interweaving counterpoint. I love it! They're the only two pieces that feature the tuba, but I'll enjoy listening to the other works.

As it's 2014 and the Centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, why not get yourself down to Southernhay United Reformed Church on Saturday 15th November starting at 7.30pm and have a listen?
