Fanfares Across the Thames (2000)

Version arranged for standard Brass Band   4 minutes

A work which demonstrates Dove’s unmatched flair for striking a celebratory note when the occasion calls for it, these two Fanfares were first heard, literally, across the Thames on the day of the dedication of the Millennium Footbridge, with ensembles placed on either side, and in the middle (on a barge!), of the river. The score has since been arranged to be performed by conventionally available brass forces and makes for a striking concert fanfare in any context.
