Fanfares and Dances
The distinguished choral conductor Paul Spicer (b1952) is perhaps best known for his work with the Finzi Singers and the Birmingham Bach Choir, but he enjoys a growing reputation both as a composer and as a writer. His Fanfares and Dances, written in 2004, is dedicated to Nigel Potts and Liese Leyrer and was played at their wedding, which took place at St Peter’s-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, Bay Shore, New York in October that year. Marked ‘lively and celebratory’ and characterized by colourful harmony, it alternates majestic passages in 4/4 time and dance-like ones in which the tuba stop enjoys irregular metres.
