Music Composers Unite!
This is an Easter fanfare for a full brass band. Score is attached as well as a computer generated mp3 (Sibelius 7 with Sibleius 7 sounds). It is based on 2 tunes, "Christ the Lord is risen today" and Crown Him with many crowns".
I would appreciate comments and critiques as well as ideas for improvements to make the piece more interesting in the middle.
Well you could give it a surprise ending where the dude stays dead. Add a little something from Mahler's 9th maybe.
There's a couple of bands which may play it. I just need to get it "right".
What do you think of the cornet descant over the melody in the Crown Him part?
