Edward Gregson: Music of the Angels, for Symphonic Brass and Percussion

Music of the Angels is a reworking of a composition originally written for brass band, organ, and percussion. Under the title of The Trumpets of the Angels, that work was commissioned by Nicholas Childs and the Foden’s Band for their centenary concert at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall in 2000.

However, in 2019 the composer decided to rework and rescore some of the original material, transforming it into a new conception for Symphonic Brass and Percussion - Music of the Angels -which was undertaken specially for a recording on the Chandos label with the internationally renowned ensemble London Brass. It is dedicated ‘In tribute to Olivier Messiaen.’
