A passionate fanfare. To the Ancient Crosses was commissioned by Foden’s as part of their ongoing relationship with Andy as Composer in Residence, and premi-ered by the band at St Mary’s Church in Sandbach in July 2011. The title refers to two 9th century stone Anglo-Saxon crosses in the centre of Sandbach, and the work is dedicated to Sandbach Town Council for their continued support of the band.

To the Ancient Crosses features rhythmic, fanfare-like motifs contrasting with lyrical melodic lines, with an uplifting finale. Ideal as a concert first half or second half opening piece of music. Recorded by Foden's Band on the CD Patrons’ Choice V, which is availa-ble from World of Brass or direct from Foden’s Band.

Percussion: Timpani, Drum Set, Cymbals, Bass Drum , Tam-tam, Tubular Bells, Suspended Cymbal, Clash Cymbals.

Total Duration: 3:45 mins
