  7. Essential Dyke Volume IV - The Pondashers

    The Essential Dyke Volume IV appeared in 2004 and, with the same conductor and principal soloists, reflected a more settled period in the band's history. In addition to a busy concert and contest schedule, Black Dyke Band was now producing a large number of CDs, a massive 22 in the years 2001-2004, partially due, no doubt, to the strong bonds between band and recording company. Amongst the CDs were a number dedicated to the music of a particular composer. To date these featured Arthur Butterworth, Michael Ball, Peter Graham, Wilfred Heaton (two albums) and Eric Ball, a ground-breaking sequence.

    Marches recorded on Volume IV were Knight Templar (its second appearance in the series), The Pondashers specially composed for Black Dyke and dedicated to its many fans by the late Major G H Willcocks, one of the band's former highly successful professional conductors, and a celebrated transcription of Tchaikovsky's March Slav as the CDs finale. With the overture to Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro and Brahms€™ Academic Festival Overture the CD had a pronounced 'classical' feel and, along with Langford€™s Sullivan Fantasy and the evergreen All in the April Evening, the emphasis was very much on tradition.

    2004 proved to be a good year on the contest platform, with a win in the National Brass Band Championships in the Royal Albert Hall, which was 'converted' to a further win in the European Championships in Groningen, Holland, in the following spring.

  24. Essential Dyke Volume V - Celebrate Rotary

    The Essential Dyke Volume V, called 'Celebrate Rotary', was released in 2005 to coincide with the centenary of Rotary, which has links with Black Dyke through a series of high profile concerts in St. David's Hall, Cardiff. 2005 was also the year of Black Dyke Band's own 150th anniversary.

    After the mainly traditional programme of Volume IV, this broke the mould slightly, with a number of modern arrangements of traditional titles, especially in the solos. Roger Webster played Schubert's beautiful Du bist die Ruh, arranged by Thomas Wyss, while David Thornton chose Auld Lang Syne in a version by Simone Mantia, a soloist in Sousa's band, but here arranged for brass by Peter Meechan, Black Dyke's Young Composer-in-Association.

    The Allegro from Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto featured the tenor horn for the first time in the series. It was played by Lesley Howie who, in 1999, achieved fame as the first female member of Black Dyke Band. Another first in the series was the inclusion of a flugel horn solo, Children of Sanchez. This was far removed from tradition, and was played by John Doyle.

    There was also a new piece by Peter Graham, Celebrate Rotary, included for obvious reasons. Nevertheless, tradition was never far away, with Walter Hargeaves's spectacular arrangement of Russlan and Ludmilla, and the 1812 Overture, arranged by Robert Childs.

    The main change, however, was the inclusion of a major original work, Michael Ball's ...all the Flowers of the Mountain..., the work with which Black Dyke Band won the Nationals in 2004.
