Folk songs have always provided a rich source of material for bands to play throughout the world. In turn, the playing of these for dancing and singing at all manner of social occasions has kept many a band in high demand. I chose to arrange Gosport Nancy purely because it is local to where my work base is. Furthermore, a different arrangement of this folk song enjoyed considerable commercial success in the hands of the folk band Bellowhead. J.M.

Description

Part of a collection of thirty original compositions and arrangements entitled Ba-Da-Boom Brass.

Inspired by the heritage and culture of world and historical brass-related styles.

We hope this repertoire will prompt a growing inquisitiveness for brass players of all ages and styles and was created with a brass club or gathering in mind.

Set at a moderate / training band standard, these pieces can be played by a flexi group of mixed brass instruments plus assorted optional percussion.

A minimum of 4 brass players is necessary, but the maximum is limitless.

All 4 brass voices have occasional divisi passages; in these instances more texture and harmonic colour is added.

In the instance of using just four brass players, playing just the top part in each case will provide a cohesive performance.

“Another impressive offering then from Superbrass, and a worthy successor to their excellent debut disc”
