"A Manx Draft" - Composed by Russell Gilmour
Composed for Brass Quintet by Russell Gilmour
This work is based on a Manx folk tune and a traditional carol. The beautifully haunting folk tune from the Isle of Man “The Sheep Under the Snow” is cunningly intertwined with the traditional “Sans Day Carol”. The work starts with a trumpet solo imitating a fiddle, with tuba and trombone later providing a drone. The work grows harmonically more complex and it culminates in an improvisatory ending.
2 x Trumpet in Bb
1 x Horn in F
1 x Trombone in Bass Clef
1 x Tuba
