Senator – Grand Contest March by George Allan – arranged for brass sextet

George Allan (1864-1930) has been called the “March King of the North East”. He wrote over seventy marches for Brass Band, many of which have been lost in the annals of time. Many of his marches were written for contests and a few are perennial favourites at the Whit Friday March contests in Saddleworth every year. This arrangement for Brass Sextet has been made with consideration especially for the cornet players who are anticipated to be of approximately equal ability. The melody line has been shared between them although occasionally the 1st cornet is expected to have a slightly higher range than the 2nd, as the 1st player is asked to cover some of the soprano cornet lines from the original work. Additionally, to benefit from this approach, an antiphonal effect is suggested with the arrangement of players recommended to be, from left to right as viewed by the audience, 1st cornet, tenor horn, tuba, euphonium, trombone, 2nd cornet, although, depending on the direction of the tuba bell, the euphonium and tuba may need to switch places. The audio sample provided has been panned in such a way as to reflect this arrangement.

The original work has been arranged so that all the important elements have been kept, and will be perfect for smaller groups if a complete band is not available. Instrumentation is flexible with parts provided in various transpositions and an optional drum kit part is also provided.

This is the first in a series of arrangements of favourite marches by George Allan that are being released in 2021.
