This is an exciting piece based on the Welsh hymn Cwm Rhondda. Fanfares and descants in the trumpets float over the stately tune. The melody flows throughout the ensemble ranging from a smooth lyrical statement of the theme to a brilliant marcato feel. This would make a great opener to a concert. It has been scored for a trumpet ensemble of 7 trumpets (including an optional piccolo part), 2 flugel horns and percussion.
