NUNSAB Ministry Series launched

This Spring sees the launch of the NUNSAB Ministry Series of pieces. These are taken directly from the repertoire of the Nuneaton Band of the Salvation Army. Under the direction of Bandmaster Andrew Mackereth since 1999, the band has maintained an effective ministry to their community.

The small band is comprised some very talented players who, though few in number, wish to play music that is as engaging and challenging to play as it is enjoyable to listen to. The pieces are typically short, often humorous and contain a clear Christian message. Each piece is playable with five players but divides when possible. There is usually no written percussion part but absolute licence to improvise!

All Things Bright and Floral

This song accompaniment was inspired by the forthcoming visit of the All Things_Page_1 All Things_Page_2Salvation Army Symphonic Wind Ensemble (SASWE) to Brighouse. In essence, it is an upbeat arrangement of All Things Bright and Beautiful with hints of the English Traditional: Floral Dance.

Early trials would seem to indicate it will be very popular with church, garden party and bandstand audiences with minimal rehearsal.

Trombone Concerto Revealed

From Monday 18th August, the score and parts for the latest compositional outpouring from Andrew will be available for sale.

Provisionally entitled, Concerto in Bb, the work is in three movements for trombone and concert band along the compositional lines of the iconic Rimsky-Korsakov Trombone Concerto.

Please email for further details.

New for Christmas 2013

If you are looking for something a little different this Christmas have a look at UNA NAVIDAD ARGENTINE, a suite of traditional Argentine Christmas carols. This piece was written for the Young People’s Band of Birmingham Citadel so is written to be effective with 5 or more players.

1. Del árbol nació la rama
2. El Nacimiento
3. La Peregrinacion

It might seem a bit early to be promoting Christmas music but if you are working with young or inexperienced bands, every week of rehearsal counts!
