Four Character Studiesfrom Master Humphrey's Clock for Wind Orchestra

Binney, Malcolm

Master Humphrey's Clock was commissioned by the Kent Youth Wind Orchestra, and draws on Dickens's Kent for its inspiration. The four widely contrasted Character Studies comprise its finale and presents an exciting independent concert piece which explores the almost endless colours and sonorities of the wind band. "........a richly scored and evocative work which will delight players and audiences wherever it is played......"
