Celestial Sun is fanfare built around a single motif, and although not a minimalist piece in form, it certainly has the nuts and bolts of a basic minimalist style. There is some interesting part-writing, and particular sections include the horns and percussion.

Celestial Sun is fanfare built around a single motif, and although not a minimalist piece in form, it certainly has the nuts and bolts of a basic minimalist style. There is some interesting part-writing, and particular sections include the horns and percussion.

Celestial Sun is a brass band piece that will suit bands that are confident with rhythmic music; there is no complex rhythms in the piece but in order for the piece to work, the rhythmic drive has to be spot-on. If not performed with the right kind of precision, the piece is likely to sound more like a stilted march, rather than an energetic fanfare.

For this reason, bandleaders who are looking to develop their band will find this piece to be good training ground, with the view of performance in the concert hall.
