All brass players seeking to play chamber music in the twenty-first century had to create their own repertoire, or perform the repertoire of another ensemble. In 2010 the commissioning process for Fair Peched begun: the vision was to steadily build a repertoire which when recorded expressed something of a manifesto for brass chamber music in the twenty-first century. For this to be possible it was necessary to accept that the project would be for some time an open-ended search: not all of the new music performed by Alba Brass since 2010 has been recorded on this album, we have selected the pieces that we kept returning to, the pieces that our audiences over the years have been most intrigued by.

Fair Peched, meaning to be out of breath in Scots slang, is Alba Brass' manifesto for brass chamber music in the twenty-first century.
