Description

Lament was written for the Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band’s programme of music at the 40th Brass in Concert Championships at the Sage, Gateshead.

The programme, based upon the Great Fire of London, tells the story of the fire in 1666.  There were between 8-10 deaths recorded as a result of the fire, however once the damage of the fire was realised, the death toll was expected to be much higher.  Lament pays tribute to those that lost their lives in the fire, where the reduced brass ensemble is a reflection of the number of lives lost.  The piece allows for a moment of reflection in a programme based on such terror and panic.
