Notes

Commissioned by the East Anglian BBA for their 61st Annual Spring Festival - 2nd May 1999. Junior Band music. The title of the ‘St. Andrew’s Variations’ has no significance apart from the fact it was written by a Scotsman to be played in the St. Andrew’s Hall ! "I have tried to maintain a balance between keeping the music straightforward technically, and giving the players something interesting to play. The theme is based on a descending motif which appears in various guises throughout seven following variations" :- A proud Fanfare, A gentle Waltz, A sad Elegy, A purposeful March, A passionate Romance, A busy ‘Moto Perpetuo’ and A peaceful Hymn, ending with a rousing Finale.
