Conducted by Michael Fowles

In ancient times the relationship between kings and their gods was an uneasy one. Kings believed themselves to be gods, intermediaries between the gods and the people. Throughout history the myths and legends surrounding gods and kings have influenced writers the world over. This recording features substantial works, the composers of which have taken inspiration from such tales and stories.

Released at the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain, Royal Albert Hall on Saturday 8th October, 2016.
