In January 2021, using funding awarded by Arts Council England through the ‘Grants for the Arts’ programme, Foden’s Band commissioned five of its members to write three brass solos each. These solos are varied in difficulty, corresponding approximately to Grades 1-5 and, as part of the project funding, brass trio accompaniment videos were produced to allow players to play the pieces along with musicians from the band.

Three Roseland Miniatures is part of that collection and is of approximately Grade 3 standard. These short character pieces are inspired by the beauty and landscapes of Cornwall’s picturesque Roseland peninsula. Caerhays Castle is bold and heraldic, echoing the sights and sounds of a bygone age of chivalry. Sailboats on the Roads is languid and gentle, evoking images of vessels on Carrick Roads, a large, sheltered estuary separating the Roseland from the port of Falmouth. Porthcurnick Beach is a bouncy waltz with plenty to evoke a Sunday afternoon spent relaxing on this popular sandy beach.
