Details

“Inchcolm” is an island in the Forth estuary first visited by St Columba in 567 and mentioned in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The ruins of Columba’s abbey are regularly shrouded in mist and bring with it a flavour of mystery and legend. Composer and distinguished French horn player Terry Johns (Drac to his friends) was commissioned to write this work for Superbrass and their water influenced 2nd album, “Brass Taps”. Drac requested that he be allowed to write a solo feature with a “proper” tune for horn. Kingdom Brass in Scotland has recently premiered “Inchcolm” in its new brass band form and the solo part is playable by either a tenor or french horn player.

Duration: 5 minutes.

Percussion: 3 players playing timpani, glockenspiel, triangle, pair of cymbals and suspended cymbal.
