Global Variations

Commissioned by the National Children's Wind Orchestra of Great Britain.

Around the world in just over eight minutes!

Although commissioned for a Youth Band, no concessions are made here for lack of technical ability, particularly in the percussion department. The chimes of Big Ben herald the start of a whistle-stop global journey, calling in turn at France, Spain, South Africa, Egypt, Russia, India, China, Australia, South America, and the USA, with a final detour through Ireland and Scotland before hearing Big Ben once more as we arrive home! 

Originally written for wind band this brass band arrangement, by Phillip Littlemore, has been recorded on the CD The Alchymist’s Journal' by the Leyland Band, conducted by Michael Fowles, and can be ordered from Faber Music (catalogue number: 0-571-52287-4).
