Programme Note

Music for an Occasion was commissioned by the University for the Creative Arts to celebrate the award of university title in 2008.  As the title suggests, the music is ceremonial in style and intent, and juxtaposes fanfare-like flourishes with stately processional music.

It was first performed at the University’s graduation ceremonies in 2009, and is published by Novello in a collected edition of fanfares and occasional pieces by the composer.
