Flourish for Wind Band

Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote some of the earliest works for twentieth- century concert band, with many of his pieces considered pillars of band literature. Flourish for Wind Band was written as an overture to the pageant Music and the People performed in the Royal Albert Hall in 1939. The score was then lost, only to reappear in 1971. Flourish for Wind Band is significant, in part, because it is a relatively easy work (grade 3 of 5), by a composer of high stature and skill. (Source: Creekside Middle School Wind Symphony)
