Comissioned in 2009 by Welsh College of Music and Drama student Lynsey Orr, Divertimento for euphonium or baritone is written in four distinct and individual movements, each tailored to display a different charecteristic of the instrument.

I Intrada - traditional in style with a pompous melody line which conjures images of the English countryside

II Siciliana - a slow and melancholic movement, full of emotion and a hint of an Irish air.

III Habanara - a rousing passionate movement written with technicallity in mind.

IV Rondo - a combination of jazz and traditional melodic influences, requiring dexterity from the soloist.
