Fanfare for St. Edmundsbury
Despite his prodigious ability to orchestrate for brass, it remains something of a mystery that Britten did not write pieces of even medium length for edmunddsbury instruments in the brass family Russian Funeral is by far the longest, but even that, at seven minutes in length, is hardly gargantuan. The Fanfare for St Edmundsbury was written for the Pageant of Magna Carta held at Bury St Edmunds Cathedral inand the three trumpeters in the piece heralded each performance over the course of ten days in June of that year.
The score specifies the trumpets be placed far apart. Each fanfare is in a different key and played alone, before all three come together at the end. A clever operation, this one, which ends up with three fanfares performed for the price of one.
Fanfare for St Edmundsbury – Wikipedia
The first trumpet begins loosely on a base of F, a pentatonic melody that quickly cuts to a perky second fanfare in C, then a more traditional one in Fanfzre that harks back to Baroque trumpet writing.
This is Britten the clever, resourceful writer — but never does he take his eyes off the resultant effect on the listener, nor the sense of theatre created before the pageant. As you would expect from such a highly regarded ensemble, the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble give a flawless performance, the acoustic ideal to capture the echoes Britten would surely have considered when writing the piece.
