Description

Commissioned by Dr. Robert Childs for Foden's Band's ‘Celebration of Youth' Brass in Concert 2017 programme, Memories of a Lost Boy takes its inspiration from J.M Barrie's fictional character - the epitome of eternal youth - Peter Pan.
Peter is a free spirit who can fly and never grows up. In Hook, he flies away to Kensington Gardens, only to return and find that his parents have forgotten about him and have had another child. Peter becomes the leader of the Lost Boys, a band of boys who were lost by their parents and came to live on the mythical island of Neverland.
Scottish Novelist and playwright, J.M. Barrie, created Peter's character based on his older brother, David, who died in an ice-skating accident the day before his 14th birthday. His mother and brother thought of him as forever a boy.
Memories of a Lost Boy can be heard on Flowers Band's 2018 CD release: Celebrate - 50 Years of Flowers.
