A Message from John Rutter:
"Thank you for all you are doing to bring my work to different performers and different audiences."
A Message from Dr. Philip Lane:
"Dr. Noble has shown great interest in my music which I am very humbled by. His reputation in the world
of concert bands is legion and I cannot think of anyone I would rather entrust my music to in the matter of arranging for the medium. I am very grateful that he has taken on this task and in so doing introduced my music to a totally new body of music makers."
A Message from Gareth Glyn:
"When Paul first suggested arranging Anglesey Seascapes for concert band, I was immediately intrigued – could a piece conceived from the start as a work for string orchestra really work in such a different guise? Quite apart from the difference in tone quality between a violin and a trumpet, or a cello and a saxophone, what about those playing techniques unique to strings: same-note tremolando, pizzicato, harmonics, and the ability to play longer notes than any wind player could?
"But any doubts I may have had were swept away when I saw Paul’s arrangement. It remains the same piece, but re-expressed in different voices; and Paul’s acute ear has created new colours that match the expression of the original completely. He has demonstrated in his adaptation that there is no need to attempt exact replication of string techniques, and that the concert band has its own – just as unique – ways of achieving the same goal."
