Battle of Britain composed by William Walton (1902-1983). Arranged by Edward Watson. For Brass Band. Superb adaptation from the film score. Serious Concert. Advanced. Full Score. Standard Notation. Duration 12:15. Published by Winwood Music (WO.0254SC).

With Standard Notation. Serious Concert.

It takes a special ability to compose film scores which serve the images perfectly yet translate into first class concert music. William Walton was such a talent as the continuing popularity of his brilliantly evocative film music shows. This suite includes the famous Dog Fight and majestic March - used for the end titles of the film - along with the Siegfried Music which parodies Wagner's horn call. You can practically feel the buzzing of Spitfires in the air! Winwood Music are delighted to make this music available to the brass band world in a fabulous arrangement by Edward Watson which captures the essence of the original while translating it seamlessly to the new idiom.
