Based on the traditional Spanish carol 'Ríu Ríu Chíu', this exciting foot-tapping item was premièred at Butlins Mineworkers Championships in 2010. Recorded on Virtuosi GUS Band’s CD ‘Christmas Fantasia - The Music of Andrew Wainwright’, it has since proved to be a popular concert item. Here it has been arranged for brass sextet.
"Spanish Dance winds up to a whirlwind climax with a respectful nod in the direction of Morley Calvert's 'Canadian Folk Song Suite' - very clever." Paul Hindmarsh, British Bandsman magazine
The flexible instrumentation means the work can be performed by a variety of different ensembles.
