A rousing display of the brass band at its most impressive and a love song to the British landscape, the awardwinning Flowers Band deliver a dazzling programme featuring Vaughan Williams’ English Folk Song Suite, alongside newer works. Starting serene and dreamy, Cloudcatcher Fells builds to a dramatic and spectacular sound, showing the full force of the band. The two alternating moods found in Cloudcatcher Fells are echoed in the contrasting force of Home of Legends and the quietly stirring Canterbury Chorale. The second half of the concert showcases the works of Gloucestershire composers Liz Lane and Gavin Higgins, alongside the everpopular Elgar, whose Pomp and Circumstance closes the performance.
