This is an arrangement of a piece I originally wrote for soprano, orchestra and choir. It was recorded by Grace Davidson with the English Chamber Orchestra and Tenebrae, under their Musical Director Nigel Short. It was subsequently recorded as a cello solo by Caroline Dale and the English Chamber Orchestra, and then in a version for soprano, cello and orchestra by Charlotte Page, Caroline Dale and the BBC Concert Orchestra.
Most recently a version for soprano and choir was performed and recorded by Susanna Fairbairn and the choir of Royal Holloway.
It was Classic FM’s ‘Sunday Best’ and BBC Radio 3’s ‘Presenter’s Choice’ in the same week.
This arrangement for brass band is at the easier end of the spectrum and should be playable by bands of all standards, though the Euphonium solo does go up to top C.
