Product Information

A Noyse of Minstrells: Round O for Orchestra

By Gordon Jacob  arr. Bram Wiggins

For Wind Band  (6 mins)           

A clever mock-Tudor confection – fun to play, expertly scored   Grade 4


'A Noyse of Minstrells' was first performed on July 18, 1970. The piece is festive and jubilant and has Jacob's normally effective and varied instrumentation. A music review in Oxford's Music and Letters from July 1973 suggests that 'A Noyse of Minstrells' contains some ideas from Jeremiah Clarke's 'Round O' of 1711, where the full orchestra repeats a refrain in contrast with quieter sections played small groups.


Gordon Jacob (1895-1984)

 

Born in Saffron Waldon, Essex, Gordon Jacob was one of the most musically conservative of his generation of composers. Though he studied with Vaughan Williams and Stanford at the Royal College, Jacob preferred the more austere Baroque and Classical models to the Romanticism of his peers. He was a skilful writer for winds, and a good deal of his regard today is for his embracing of the wind band. Jacob was highly prolific and published over 700 pieces of music before his death in 1984, in addition to his four books and numerous essays on music.
