Forsyth's Modern Wind Music is a series of volumes containing exciting and challenging, but not unduly difficult, works by talented English composers of current or recent vintage for recital, study or recreation. Each volume includes three works with piano, one unaccompanied piece, and one piece for two or more players of the instrument. In this volume for trumpet Arthur Butterworth's 'Hejnal' is a rousing fanfare taking as its cue the trumpet-call of the Cracow Watchman. John Paynter has contributed two pieces - 'Epitaffio' (based on a plainsong fragment) and 'Laudet' (a brilliant toccata). Julia Usher's 'Ode to The West Wind' is a colourful evocationwith much howling and gusting, while the solo work is Geoffrey Poole's cultivated Avenue, which is partnered by his quartet for trumpets 'Street Music', which is somewhat less suburban with ad lib rhythm section or synthesizer.
