Philip Wilby: Partita For Band

Books | Brass Ensemble

Catalogue No: WIW0160SC
Composer: Philip Wilby
Format: Sheet Music | Score

The sound and culture of Brass Bands was part of Philip Wilby’s childhood, and this short Partita seeks to commemorate his childish memories in the musical terms of today’s currency. Although the music makes technical demands on the players the piece is nevertheless designed to involve rather than impress its audiences. There are four movements: Towers and Chimneys which is both heraldic and mysterious; Churches: Lord of the Dance is an arrangement of the famous shaker melody made popular in Martin Shaw’s hymn of Jesus’ life and history; Pastorale: Sunday Afternoon recalls those long and languorous days before television, and Coronation Day Parade – a community celebration with a Brass Band at its centre.
