Originally written for wind band, commissioned by BASBWE in 1993. The brass band version, made in 1998, was commissioned by Paul Hindmarsh on behalf of the Brass Band Heritage Trust with the financial support of the North West Arts Trust for the 1999 National Youth Brass Band Championships.

Chaucer's Tunes (two sections of which began life as the theme music for a BBC radio series The Road to Canterbury) consists of six interconnected sections. These can equally well be played either as one complete continuous movement or as independent individual pieces. Includes: Intrada; Fantasia: Alma redemptoris mater; Intermezzo: The Wife of Bath; Carol: Es ist ein' Ros' entsprungen; Chase: Chauntecleer and the Fox; Finale.
