Ritchie's Brass Quintet is dedicated to his father, John Ritchie, and was composed in 1992 for the Canterbury Quintet. Unfortunately this ensemble folded before the work could be performed, and consequently the composer had not heard the work prior to the recording by the NZ Chamber Brass. Ritchie notes that, at the time of composing the work, he was fascinated by the work of several Minimalist composers, this influence being most apparent in the first two movements.
