COMPOSER : Chris Allen


Passing was written over the course of a series of weekly virtual workshops, with fellow young brass band writers, led by composer Mike Sheppard during the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown. The piece has a ternary (ABA) form, beginning with a haunting melody accompanied by untethered, bleak harmonies.

From letter B, the clouds begin to dissipate, leading to a central section with a very traditional, romantic climax. However, this relief is short-lived and the music quickly returns to the atmosphere of the opening, but with small recollections of the bliss of the central section.
