Fanfare - Men and Angels

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.

  • I see you're getting quite the jump on the season, John!

    You could develop the middle part if you wish for a longer version, but it certainly works "as is".

    Do have an opportunity to have this played next Easter?
  • Fredrick, you're *killin'* me!!
  • 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?

  • It works!
  • Nice peace, and some of my favorite Easter Hymns.

    God's Peace,
    Father Jason+
