Description

Karl Jenkins composed this beautiful song for well-known singer Lesley Garrett (Soprano) using the famous poem by Irish poet W B Yeats, He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven.

This was subsequently arranged for Penclawdd Brass Band by its Music Director, Tony Small, to accompany soprano Ros Evans in the band's 40th Anniversary Concert (2013) in the presence of the band's President Sir Karl Jenkins.

Tony Small arranged a solo version for Bb Cornet which was first performed by Christopher Smith (Principal Cornet) in Penclawdd Band's Annual Concert of October, 2017. The band's former Principal Cornet, Gareth Small (Principal Trumpet of the famous Hallé Orchestra) gave the next performance with the Tredegar Band in January 2018 and it was subsequently recorded by the Flowers Band under the direction of David Childs and featuring cornetist Andrew Smith on the band's 50th Anniversary CD release - Celebrate!
