Procession Royale was written in 2015 and dedicated to Stephen Cleobury. Its composer writes:
‘The Procession Royale is a trumpet or tuba (high pressure English solo reed stop) tune. The British are particularly famous for their trumpet and tuba tunes—those of Purcell, Clarke, Stanley and others come to mind. These happy works are often used for wedding processional marches, and indeed, this one could serve in that capacity. The piece is in B-flat Major, a key friendly to a trumpet and the one requested by Cleobury for the organ at King’s College Chapel.’
