With bands throughout the country participating in Remembrance Day services and concerts next month, these titles from Pennine Music will deliver a perfect setting for those reflective moments.
In Flanders Field
'In Flanders Fields' by Gavin Somerset was brought into the limelight by the girls of Boobs & Brass who performed it to widespread critical and popular acclaim — especially with the use of a poppy cannon at the climax of the piece.
Based up the poem by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, this emotional work takes the audience on an evocative journey through the famous poppy fields.
One of the most popular works released by Pennine Music this year, is Andi Cook's stunning arrangement of the Hymn Tune, 'Manchester'.
Penned following the tragic events that took place at the Manchester Arena in May, sales of this title see the money raised being donated to the MEN appeal.
A Quiet Moment
For those reflective moments in your concerts, Darrol Barry has composed a beautiful original work entitled 'A Quiet Moment'. Simple in structure, it is perfect to make time stand still.
Bless 'Em All
For those livelier pieces to bring a taste of the times, then there is 'Bless 'Em All' — a fantastic work that bring together a collection of war time songs, skillfully put together by Gavin Somerset.
'Wish Me Luck, As You Wave Me Goodbye', 'We're Going To Hang Out The Washing', 'Kiss Me Goodnight Sgt. Major', 'Good Morning', 'Bless 'Em All' and the highlight of the piece, the slow, hair raising middle movement 'Apple Blossom Time' for a wonderful medley that is sure to make people smile in reflection.
