This is an original composition for concert band that I wrote some time ago in honor of a good friend, William Root, "Conductor and Teacher of the Art of Music" as inscribed in the score. He passed away this past June after years of dedication to the world of music.
The work was written as a concert march. And as it turned out, to me it had a certain feeling of a British style march. I re-scored it in Finale 2006 and realized it using both the GPO and the JABB (for the saxes).
Another fellow with whom I have previously collaborated, Nigel Horne (http://www.bandsman.co.uk/), further arranged "The Bandmaster" for British Brass Band. It is presented below with his kind permission. Just a note for the BB purists, the cornet parts are covered by trumpets as they do not exist in GPO or JABB. Hopefully I will be able to fill that gap when the new Concert Band library is issued.
I hope that you enjoy these works.
