Flanfayre is a brand new Fanfare written by composer Stephen Deazley, commissioned by MFY and EIS for the 2012 National Festivals.

It was written in six flexible groups for musicians of varying abilities. Take a look at the descriptions below, see which one is right for you and your group, download the parts, and enjoy!

A little note from Stephen Deazley

It's not really a fanfare (oops). It's more like a large cheesy flan full of different flavours, although you will still hear one or two heraldic sounding parps. I decided to set myself a challenge to write the piece in 100 bars, but ended up with 102! I am however blaming my imagined Highland pipers having to strike up their drones just before the final tune - it added exactly two bars! I really enjoyed writing this - I hope you enjoy playing it.
