Commissioned by Val Davies of Eccles Borough Band in 2006. This famous hymn from SIbelius' Finlandia is reimagined for brass band in a new setting, highly-charged in emotion and drama.

This piece of music is a favourite of my husband Jim. I asked James to do an arrangement to celebrate Jim's birthday and we were very happy with the result.

A fantastic treatment of this wonderful theme.We thouroughly enjoyed finding the beautiful harmonies in this one as we prepared for a hymn tune contest. Excellent arrangement recommended for all grades of brass band.
Rai Hirst (User rating: 5/5)
This piece has everything that any band could want to bring a hymn tune arrangement to a church gig. This would also be a great addition to an SA band library.
Aaron Wolfe (User rating: 5/5)
This hymn has always been one of my favourite hymns. When I came across this version online I decided that my youth band (Whitworth Vale & Healey Youth Brass Band) would perform it within their setlist at the Rochdale Youth Contest in 2016. The way in which James has treated the hymn is beautiful and well thought out. It was a challenge for the band but the result they put together was amazing. Thank you James for treating my favourite hymn with such care and attention. I would recommend this to all levels of brass band from intermediate youth to championship.
