New range

Birchfield Music has a great new range of music for the coming season and beyond. Whatever the level of your band, we have something for your programmess on any type of concert stage.

Whether you are looking for a light-hearted number, music to show off your band's soloists or something of a more testing nature, we have something to fit the bill.

New works

One of our latest publications, 'She's like the Swallow' is a beautiful arrangement of a traditional folk song from Newfoundland and will showcase your band's smooth playing to great effect.

A more major work 'Crown Him!' is a developed set of variations on the hymn tune 'Diademata'.

Originally written for the International Staff Band of the Salvation Army, the piece is written in a similar way to Gregson's classic 'Variations on Laudate Dominum' and explores aspects of the hymn tune in superb variations.

We also have a new range of brass quartet arranged for two cornets, tenor horn and euphonium priced between £8.95 and £10.95!Birchfield Music
