Programme Note

Processional Fanfare is a short work that expands on the motif first heard in the trumpets; a small downward leap followed by a larger leap back up again. This idea is overlapped when the rest of the ensemble enters gradually, and as this happens the harmonies thicken, leading to a bright and celebratory close.
