The Hewer’s Prayer


  • Composer: Gibson
  • Instrumentation: Brass Band
SKU: BWBB098 Category:


This music was inspired by stories of those working in the dark and dangerous conditions of the coal mines, and particularly those hewers right at the coal face. Based around an original theme, the music captures a hymn-like setting of a miner’s prayer for safety. Depictions of industry and difficult times follow, but resolve into a triumphant conclusion where dark imagery give way to light.

The music is the composer’s proud tribute to the industrial heritage of his forebears.
