This was originally a Gloria for Brass, written in 1983 and performed by Redbridge Brass. It has been adapted for the present occasion. There are two main musical ideas: the massive chords that come towards the middle of the piece and a harmonic progression consisting of two chords, F major and D flat major deriving from Purcell. The Fanfare is divided into several sections deriving from these initial ideas. It can be heard either as a succession of different textures or as successive expositions of the central harmonic structures - rather like viewing a solid object, such as a
sculpture, from various angles.
