Fanfare de Angelis

Fanfare de Angelis is a concert opener for brass band. The fanfare theme as well as the choral theme are based on the first four notes of the Kyrië from the Missa de Angelis (F-A-Bb-C). The mass itself is intended for feasts and commonly used in the christmas mass. Therefore, next to being a great opener for your concerts, it can also be used during christmas.

The piece starts with a fanfare opening that develops to a big climax after which the theme is exposed. The theme is presented by the flugel horn, tenor horn and euphonium and taken up by the backrow cornet section, giving them a chance to shine. The piece ends with a recapitulation of the fanfare juxtaposed with the choral theme.
