Vitae Aeternum - Paul Lovatt-Cooper
Tell a friend
Vitae Aeternum represents the first substantial composition conceived by Paul Lovatt-Cooper in his capacity as 'Composer in Residence' to the world famous Black Dyke Band. Vitae Aeternum (meaning Eternal Life) takes its inspiration from songs composed by Ivor Bosanko and Dick Krommenhoek and is in three continuous movements.
Vitae Aeternum was commissioned by Gerard Klaucke of GK Graphic Design VOF and received its first performance in the De Lawei Concert Hall, Drachten, Holland on 25th August 2007 played by Black Dyke Band conducted by Dr. Nicholas Childs. Later that year, it formed the finale of Brighouse and Rastrick Band's winning programme at the Brass in Concert Championship and has since been embraced by other leading bands including Cory Band, Leyland Band and The International Staff Band of The Salvation Army.
Both Prima Vista Musikk and the composer wish to acknowledge and thank the support and co-operation of Colonel Dick Krommenhoek, Ivor Bosanko and The Salvation Army.
