    BBA March


    This is a concert march with a difference!  The whole of the first section is in minor mode – unusual and intended to depict the trials and tribulations which inspired the original (and now successfully completed) Africa-based projects of Brass Band Aid.  The Trio then goes into the major and begins with a Prayer motif that starts with the notes B-B-A.  Following a rather turbulent episode (a reminder that there is still much to do), the Prayer theme returns triumphantly, reflecting optimism for the future.  The work was created in response to a charitable CD fund-raising project, and the recording by the Wingates Band was featured on the final CD – Into Africa.
