New Imogen Holst Original Only Available on OBP

Following on the heels of Leiston Suite, we are pleased to announce that a second piece written by Imogen Holst is now available only here from OBP.

Fanfare for the Grenadier Guards was written in 1966, the same year that Leiston Suite was composed and is scored for three trumpets, two trombones and horn in F. The score requests for the trumpets and trombones to be arranged as far apart and opposite each other with the horn, a more distant voice from centre stage. Like Leiston, it is another piece that was recorded by Onyx Brass and directed by John Wilson on their successful Fanfares recording.
