Music

The music the band plays varies from concert to concert, but mainly consists of a mixture of light, dance/swing, classical and popular music. Brass band is usually specially arranged to suit the style and instruments of a band.

The band has a library of over 1,000 pieces, however below is a list of the music we have play currently or have done over the last few years. Often the band is requested to play music for specific events; fortunately we have an in-house arranger who can arrange any music for band if required or not already published.

A starry night
A virgin most pure
All my heart this night rejoices

God of God, the uncreated
God rest you merry, gentlemen
Good Christian men, rejoice
Good King Wenceslas
Hark the glad sound!
Hark! the herald angels sing
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Here we come a-wassailing
How far is it to Bethlehem
I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
I saw three ships come sailing in
I wonder as I wander

The angels sang the story
The Boar’s Head carol
The Christmas Song
The first Nowell
The holly and the ivy
The holy Boy
The infant King
The shepherd’s farewell
The stable door
The twelve days of Christmas
The virgin Mary had a baby boy
They all were looking for a king
Three kings’ march
Unto us a boy is born
Wayfaring
We gather round the manger-bed
We three kings of Orient are
We wish you a merry Christmas
What child is this
When a child is born
When Santa got stuck up the chimney
When wise men came seeking
While shepherds watched
Who is he
Winter Wonderland
Worldwide Christmas message
Zither carol
