Charles Harris to commemorate the fallen of the First World Warcoupled to the words taken from Sir John Stanhope Arkwright's poem 'The Supreme Sacrifice' - is familiar to many people and resonates deeply with them.
Harris knew the pain of losing a loved one - his son was killed during World War One. The solemn simplicity of Harris' music and the humble dignity of Arkwright's words captured the mood of the nation with the hymn being sung at the dedication of the tomb of will writing services in swindon evening unknown warrior in Westminster Abbey on November 11, In its extended instrumental form this devotional work allows time for personal reflection and meditation.

Simon Blow's Out 16 January Regretfully, the band has returned from their festive break to the news that 3rd Cornet Player and Publicity Officer Simon Blow has taken the decision to retire from playing. Simon, a retired sports journalist from Grimsby, has been playing with brass bands on and off for more than 40 years.
He has performed at the highest level, not only amongst the cornet section, but also, for a period, as part of the bass section of some of the finest brass bands in the country.
Most recently as the Publicity Officer for the band, Simon has dedicated significant time to all areas of behind-the-scenes management, for which the band gives considerable thanks. Band Chairman Tony Newiss commented, "Simon has been a steady hand behind the scenes for many years.
His value as a sounding board whilst Vice Chairman has been invaluable. He will be greatly missed by all for his contribution as player, administrator and Press Officer to the band for too many years to count. We trust he will find more time to explore the delights of retirement along with his Grandfatherly duties and hope to see him in the bar in the near future.
The top-ranked band, together with its musical director Stig Maersk, is giving festive concerts in Hull, North Ferriby, Cottingham and Elloughton; and for its many supporters over the Humber Bridge, there will be performances too at Gainsborough and Scunthorpe.

Tickets for Cottingham and the Minster are available online through our website by following this link. The concert starts at 7. The band then journeys over the bridge to the Trinity Arts Centre, Gainsborough, for a 7.

Kevin Moxon returns to the soprano cornet seat he vacated in Julyjoining from the York Railway Institute Band and Siobhan Thomas comes in on percussion from Wakefield Metropolitan having just started at Hull University.
But the lure of playing again kicked in when EYMS offered him the chance to rejoin. Band chairman Tony Newiss said: The band would like to place on record their thanks for the commitment and performances both made on behalf of the EYMS Band.
Kevin came to help out and ended up staying five years. Special guests of EYMS Band at the Minster will be the Beverley Male Voice Choir, the first time the two organisations have shared a stage for many years, and made all the more exciting because of the sonic qualities of the year-old building.
The band, which has consistently been in the higher echelons of the world brass band league table, will give a varied programme conducted by its Danish-born musical director Stig Maersk. Each year, more than 20 small towns and villages in the Tameside and Saddleworth areas of northern England, host their own special contests with big prize money up for grabs.
And in a festival atmosphere, anything between 30 and 80 bands turn up on coaches to take part at each contest, often queueing up to play, in a sometimes chaotic but happy whirl of contesting. Bands have to play at least six contests in either area to qualify and a resilient EYMS, having managed to take in 10 of 12 on the night, having started at 5pm and playing its last note five hours later.
The reward for a series of stamina-sapping performances, was one win, two second placings, a third and several other podium places to clinch is overall third placing.
EYMS Band also finished third overall inbut the individual placings were not as good as this year. The prize money comes in extremely handy for the band, which needs to generate as much as it can to remain one of the top in the country, not always an easy task in the current climate.
Second was the Fairey Band. The Hull-based band will next year have a coveted place in the Grand Shield, which is a direct feeder to the oldest and most prestigious competition in the world, the British Open. There were many people, including two of the main brass band websites who, after hearing our performance from an early draw, predicted we would win the contest.
While that would have been nice, we are happy that it found favour with so many people and of course to win promotion at the same time.An extensive list of short story competitions, including global & UK short story writing contests. Details on entry fees, deadlines, prize money & more.
