Brave Wolfe - Easy-Medium
00:00 / 00:00

Brass Band

This mournful piece is based on a Canadian folk song which is an account of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, where the British, led by General Wolfe, captured Quebec City from the French, under General Montcalm. This lyrical arrangement makes use of rich harmonies influenced by jazz and pop music. There are some great solo sections to feature a talented flugel horn, cornet and euphonium member of the ensemble.

Last Voyage of the Queen Anne's Revenge - Easy-Medium
00:00 / 00:00

Brass Band

Queen Anne's Revenge was the final ship sailed by Edward Thatch, also known as the pirate, Blackbeard. To give the "Pirate-like" feeling to the music, it has been composed in 6/8 time, as have many pieces about pirates. This great piece captures the spirit of pirates on the high seas.

Western Fair - Easy-Medium
00:00 / 00:00

Brass Choir

Western Fair is an energetic, uplifting piece that can be fun for both players to perform and listeners to hear. It is composed using two main melodies that are performed in many forms, combined in various fragments and supported with different harmonic backgrounds, giving it new life each time it is heard. The piece slowly builds from a simple flugel horn solo into an epic, cut-time feel in the middle before driving to an exciting ending.

Glen and Galley - Medium
00:00 / 00:00

Brass Choir

The title of this suite refers to the headdress (the glen) worn by the cadets of the Lorne Scots Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps and the galley is the Galley of Lorne, which is displayed on the coat of arms for the Dukes of Argyll. This piece is set in 3 contrasting sections, each with a Scottish feel - The Sapling Grows, Colonel Parker and For Our Heritage.

The Lion Heart - Medium
00:00 / 00:00

Brass Choir

The Lion Heart is a great way to describe one who is brave, be it a soldier, knight, or a member of society who risks their lives everyday to keep others safe. The piece is meant to be strong from start to finish, with some short contrasting sections. This fun symphonic march offers interesting parts for all.

Rise of the Ancients - Medium
00:00 / 00:00

Brass Choir

Ancient civilizations represent many things about life as we know it today: power, beauty, intelligence, and ambition. This piece reflects all of these qualities, from the driving force of the ancient armies, to the elegance of ancient architecture.

The Tides of Fate - Medium
00:00 / 00:00

Brass Choir

For those who have enjoyed Last Voyage of the Queen Anne's Revenge or Burning of the Royal Fortune, here is another exciting instalment to the pirate theme at a more challenging level. All the world loves a pirate theme. Argh!

Kaalin's Flight - Medium-Difficult
00:00 / 00:00

Brass Choir

This piece was influenced by the music of the Middle East and India.  ‘Kaalin’ is the Hindi word for ‘rug’, much like the one ridden by Aladdin in the famous story.  This piece can even be considered a programmatic piece, as if someone were riding a magic carpet through the Arabic or Indian communities.
