Program Notes

Three Processionals was commissioned by the British Association of Symphonic Bands and Wind Ensembles in 1997. It was commissioned as a sixtieth birthday present for Timothy Reynish and was premiered by the Berkshire Young Musicians Trust Wind Orchestra and Sefton Youh Wind Orchestra under the baton of Reynish himself. Timothy Reynish is a renowned conductor throughout Europe, where for over 25 years he held the position of Head of School Wind and Percussion at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.

The composition itself is a three-movement work. The three movements, Marziale, Cortège, and Fiesta, offer three contrasting musical themes, each in their own style and meter.
