Terra Nova


By David Chaulk

A three movement suite for brass band, based on Newfoundland songs and quotes from Newfoundland's official anthem, The Ode to Newfoundland. Suitable to be a Third or Fourth Section (C or D Grade in Australasia) test piece. This piece works within the constraints of writing for a lower section band without 'dumbing down' the musical content. Terra Nova was selected as the Fourth Section test piece for the 2017 Swiss National Brass Band Championship.
