Fantasy on London Nursery Rhymes
Concert Series - Grade 4
Fantasy on London Nursery Rhymes was commissioned by Paul Holland for the Flowers Band, and was included in their 2016 Brass in Concert programme.
This light-hearted work uses the melodies of traditional nursey rhymes that have an association with London; Oranges and Lemons, The Muffin Man, Pop Goes the Weasel, Humpty Dumpty and Mary Mary Quite Contrary. Each setting of the rhyme depicts a famous landmark from the capital; Big Ben, the Thames, the Underground, Buckingham Palace, Horse Guards Parade and the Tower of London.
An ideal work if you are looking for a little bit of fun!
