  1. Solid from Rothwell review by Tim Mutum on 20/02/2018

    A solid, consistent Yorkshire outfit is how I would describe the Rothwell Temperance Band and that's epitomised in their latest self-produced CD, 'Orb and Sceptre'. The programme breaks down into two distinct halves. The first celebrates British music but, the opening title track from William Walton aside, in a less obvious way. The Gaelic 'Magh Seola' is lovingly played on flugel by Vikki Holland followed by 'The Banks of Green Willows' from George Butterworth, 'Ae Fond Kiss' by Robert burns in which Catherine Roberts on tenor horn shines, 'Sunset Over the River Exe' from Kenneth Downie and Paul Lovatt Cooper's 'Donegal Bay' with Andy Padgett's nicely phrased baritone skills.

    After that it's a segment of more widely known concert repertoire, although the 'Hommage a Adolphe Sax' from jan Van der Roost's 'From Ancient Times' seems an odd choice in this context. Still, with a couple more solos and Snell's first-rate arrangement of Gershwin's 'An American in Paris' in the mix there is much to admire here, although the barest of booklets with no detail on the music is an irritation. And as Dan Morgan on euphonium brought the disc to a warm close with John Golland's 'Peace' the thought entered my mind of how many bands still have Temperance in their title?
