Score & Parts
The first piece of Kevin’s space trilogy which was originally written for the Poynton Youth Band. This piece is a great opener with its strong drum rhythm at the beginning and its flowing melody throughout.

Written for Kevin’s Partner Barbara “An Huni a Garav” translates from the cornish language as “The one that I Love.”
This Beautiful melody will well into any concert programme.
Tenor Horn Legend Gordon Higginbottom described it as: “A lovely piece, a nice change to have a good melody not ruined by loads of twiddly bits, a real beauty.”
A descriptive piece of around 13 minutes telling the story of and taking you on a journey around the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Following the introduction, we begin our journey at the Grand House with the staff scurrying around carrying out their work.
Next comes the outbreak of World War 1 when all of the male staff of the house signed up with the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry. Following the war only 6 of the gardens 22 staff survived and returned to Heligan.
After the war the gardens “Go to Sleep” and become overgrown.
Then comes the modern-day workers rediscovering the gardens and beginning to put them back to their former glory.
Then the sun rises over the gardens and the birds begin to sing and we find ourselves in the serene lost valley.
We then pass through the Jungle before turning the corner and once again see the House and lawns in all their glory.
This Beautiful melody is a mixture of old and new. The solo starts in classical style before being brought up to date with the feel of a modern ballad then reverting to the classical style to finish.
A great addition to your Soprano Cornet player’s repertoire.
