    African Trio


    A wonderful piece with three distinct elements, as its title would infer.  From the opening development of Kum Ba Yah with its rich warmth, the tempo gains momentum with references to The Lord’s Prayer, and builds to an exciting, even more positive finish with a wonderful angle on We Are Marching.  The work is a perfect example of the Kenneth Downie’s renowned creativity and stylish handling of melody and harmony.

    The work was created in response to a charitable CD fund-raising project, and the recording by The National Youth Band of Wales was featured on the final CD – Into Africa.
