Timbercroft Publishing was originally created as a vehicle to feature the many arrangements of Phillip Littlemore. He has been editing and arranging for brass band and wind band for many years and has worked closely with some of our best composers in the genre including Kenneth Hesketh, Nigel Hess, Carl Davis, Jonathan Dove, Ēriks Ešenvalds, Simon Dobson and Gavin Higgins.
Timbercroft Publishing publishes both compositions and arrangements from others including the highly-respected Alan Fernie as well as Philip Doe, Don Blakeson and Iain McKnight. In 2021, Brass Essentials by the renowned trumpet teacher Paul Cosh was added to the roster.
The Timbercroft Publishing catalogue has over 80 brass titles including compositions and arrangements by Alan Fernie, Philip Doe, Don Blakeson, Iain McKnight and Phillip Littlemore. There are some highlights below, but click on the brass band or wind band tab above to see our entire range.
2024 is the 150th anniversary of the birth of Holst. This new arrangement of the Second Suite in F restores the original key and includes some previously omitted sections of the Sidney Herbert transcription from 1923.
Only in Sleep is a nostalgic vision of childhood re-experienced through dreams. The music has an incandescent freshness and the Flugel Horn heard at the opening returns at the close, whilst florid arabesques float over one last pair of chords.
Sarabande has a beautiful melody complemented by a soft and subtle band accompaniment. It is an opportunity for the soloist to demonstrate their lyrical playing. It also works as wither a Flugel Horn of Cornet solo.
The Finale from Faust, also known as Phyné’s Dance, is where ominous sounds of wild and wicked celebrations from the underworld can be heard. This arrangement is a fitting piece for either a concert finisher or an encore.
