ALL PROCEEDS TO BRASS BANDS ENGLAND’S “SAVE OUR BRASS BANDS” CAMPAIGN
For six months in 1972-3, Wilfred Heaton was the resident musical director of the famous Black Dyke Mills Brass Band. He had been recommended for the position by principal cornet James Shepherd, who was a colleague of Heaton’s on the peripatetic teaching staff of the West Riding Music Education Department.
Heaton prepared a small collection of arrangements for the band’s octet and when James Shepherd left the band to form his own versatile brass ensemble, he took copies with him. These have now been collected into a single volume and edited for versatile octets of brass band or symphonic ensembles.
All proceeds from the sales of downloaded sets will be passed on to Brass Bands England’s “Save our Brass Bands” campaign established to support brass bands during the Covid-19 pandemic.
