    Program Notes
    Dedicated to Nicholas Childs and the Black Dyke Band, HEROES pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing and the incredible achievements of astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. The piece is cast in three continuous sections:

    1. Ignition, which launches the work, propels us into orbit with dynamic rhythmic writing before transitioning into the second section...

    2. Tranquility, provides the soloists an opportunity to revel in a contrasting sound world, reflecting the remarkable quiet and stillness of The Sea of Tranquility.

    3. Return, the final section is a technical tour-de-force, developing material from the earlier sections before a reprise of the “Tranquility” theme brings the work to a resounding conclusion.

    HEROES was selected as the test piece for the Championship Section of the 2020 National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain.

    1. Size of Study Score is perfect!

      I've been wanting to look/study this score and the study score is perfect. Well printed and perfect size. I had an issue at first ordering it online but received a fast response and a workable link. It arrived well packed and quicker than I anticipated, thank you! on May 13th 2020
