Brass Band – Impressions of the English Lakes

This is one of my favourite compositions, which took me several years to complete. It was inspired by a trip to the Lake District in the North West of England in 2000. The landscape is beautiful and we were blessed with wonderful weather and good friends. Although the piece is continuous, there are distinct sections that cover my impressions of the countryside at different points. These are labelled in the score and parts: “The Mountains”, “Airforce Fly Past”, “The Ramblers”, “A Brief Downpour”, “Windermere”, “Scafell Pike”, “Haverthwaite Railway”, “An Abandoned Farm”, “The Celtic Influence”, “Helvellyn” and “Mr Jeremy Fisher”. The piece concludes with a final, brief glimpse of the mountains.

“Mr Jeremy Fisher” refers, of course, to the Beatrix Potter character who was nearly eaten by a fish.

This would make an excellent own-choice test piece and, at just over 10 minutes, would make a good piece in an entertainment contest programme.

Suitable for bands from 3rd section upwards.

Parts supplied are for British Brass Band (All TC transposed, except Bass Trombone) plus Timps, Percussion 1
