  4. Boscombe and Foden's Live

    Lieut-Colonel Ray Steadman-Allen has for many, many years used his creative gifts through musical ministry within The Salvation Army. The opportunity to premiere a brand new work, and premiere a first complete performance of another work from his hand, during his 85th year, demanded a special and unique occasion.

    That came about with the partnership of the Boscombe Band of The Salvation Army and Foden's Richardson Band, along with special guest soloist Brett Baker, in the magnificent Boscombe Salvation Army Citadel, Bournemouth in February 2008.

  9. Heritage Series Vol. 1 - Music from the 1930s

    As with many of The Salvation Army's early day innovations, brass bands were an unplanned grass roots development. Indeed, the Army's founder William Booth confessed, 'Captains...and bands of music were not in my mind'.

    It began in 1878 with a local brass quartet supporting Booth's evangelistic visit to Salisbury. The experiment proved both an attraction and an aid to the singing. The idea speedily caught on, often assisted by local teachers. Hymns and religious songs were the staple diet.

    The taste for further material was catered for by established band publishers but soon the emphasis on Salvation Army purposes led to the setting up of a music department and in-house publication. In its infancy, Salvation Army music was largely a stringing together of three or four tunes and initially bands did not play other than to assist congregations. The concept of 'performance' was frowned on but there was a growing understanding of the functional value of instrumental music. As amateur composition was encouraged, by World War One there was a respectable library of fairly developed music. The 1920s saw the appearance of names which subsequently became notable and flowered fully as evidenced by the representative items on this CD.

    The traditional Salvation Army method of journal publication often leads to the neglect of older music and this series, played by the modern day ISB, is designed to preserve works which deserve survival well beyond their heritage interest.

  10. The Peter Graham Collection

    Whether as arranger ("Cry of the Celts...an extraordinary arrangement, exuberant, extrovert" The Times) or composer ("Harrison's Dream is an absolute knockout" American Record Guide), Peter Graham's work has been celebrated by performers and audiences alike. It is his music for British-style brass band that has established his international reputation. He has written for all levels of brass band, from educational concert music to the most demanding test-piece and is in the unique position of having had his music performed at every major brass band competition worldwide.

    The double album allows the listener a fine overview of his output particularly, but not exclusively, within the time period 1996 (Shine as the Light) to 2009 (The Torchbearer and Seize the Day). Within that time, Peter Graham has risen to the top ranks of brass and wind band composers.

  12. Classically Enfield

    The Salvation Army has embraced wholeheartedly the use of classical art music. In initial efforts, arrangers wedded famous operatic tunes to sacred texts.

    It is generally recognised that Richard Slater held the torch for the use of the classics as an edifying, enriching and refining tool in the growth of Salvation Army Bands. He soon expanded the options for bands to include medleys, the range of composers and sources used indicating a man well versed in operatic, chamber and symphonic literature. Bramwell Coles' famous Moments with Tchaikovsky and Treasures from Tchaikovsky led Salvation Army Bands music towards portions of symphonic or absolute music. This naturally provided more challenging musical experiences, an aspect that intensified after World War II.

    Fortuitously, this recording appears in 2009, just as notable anniversaries for composers profiled on this recording are celebrated: Handel 250th (1685-1759), Haydn 200th (1732-1809) and Mendelssohn 200th (1809-1847). The choice of repertoire on this recording provides an excellent overview of the repertoire Salvationist transcribers have provided Salvation Army Bands since World War I. Each succeeding generation has uncovered, and then reshaped, many 'thoughts', 'gems' and 'treasures'.

  14. Royal Albert Hall Highlights Vol. 1 - The Present Age

    As the 1950s gave way to the 1960s, so too did 78s acquiesce to LPs. The legendary Regal Zonophone label, synonymous with Salvation Army recordings, remained but as part of EMI Records. Improvements in sound recording technology heralded the advent of live performance recordings and hand in hand to this was a series of mammoth Salvation Army events at the magnificent Royal Albert Hall, devised by Messrs. Adams, Bearcroft, Boon, Condon and Goffin.

    These were great Salvation Army musical events in themselves and the vibrant crystal clear recordings preserved them for posterity and took this music into thousands of homes around the world.  

    This series of CDs seeks to recapture that age, all taken from the original master tapes.

  16. So Glad!

    Recent years have witnessed a perceived demand for an International Staff Band recording that reflects the lighter side of Salvation Army brass band repertoire. This compilation delivers on that demand!

    Some of the repertoire is newly recorded and some taken from previous recordings hence several different recording locations including Henry Wood Hall, Coldstream Guards Band rehearsal room and LSO St Lukes.

  18. Heritage Series Vol. 2 - Music from the 1940s

    During the war years which dominated the 1940s, causing huge numbers of Salvation Army Bands personnel to be displaced, SA bands continued to function, albeit largely on a restricted basis and with help from locally posted servicemen. Publication of Salvation Army brass band music was maintained with the exception of the Festival Series which was put on hold. Publishing policy of the day was to present balanced journals, and in so doing quite a stock of manuscripts had been built by the late 1930s. Stylistically there was little in the way of fresh approach but new voices began to be heard which promised idiomatic advance. At the same time there were good things coming from the more established writers.

    Dr. Stephen Cobb's choice of music for this disc has been no easy task and no doubt others could suggest enough personal favourites to fill more CDs. What is presented here however, is an excellent cross-section of a period on the verge of change which subsequently gathered momentum.

  20. Premier Brass 2010 Re:Union

    The first Premier Brass concert took place in 2002 and was the initiative of Howard J. Evans, who at the time was Bandmaster of the Amsterdam Staff Band. The purpose of the concert was to build a bridge between Salvation Army Bands and the wider brass band world. The concert, featuring the Amsterdam Staff Band (ASB) and Brassband Rijnmond was a great success and subsequent concerts saw the ASB share the stage with the brass bands of De Bazuin Oenkerk, Schoonhoven, De Wâldsang and Soli Deo Gloria.

    2010 saw a reunion of the original participants with Howard J. Evans returning to Holland as the guest conductor. This recording of concert highlights features solo contributions from both bands and concludes with four items played by the combined bands.

  22. Cristo Redentor

    2010 is the 125th anniversary year of Hendon Band and Cristo Redentor is launched on the occasion of the twenty-fifth anniversary of Hendon Highlights, the series of memorable concerts hosted by the band.  

    This is a new era for Hendon Band and Cristo Redentor is the first recording under the direction of Bandmaster David Rudd who succeeded Stephen Cobb in 2008. Whilst the band has changed its leadership recently (Michael Calland succeeding David as Deputy Bandmaster), much remains unchanged and it is a case of 'business as usual' in terms of the band's mission, repertoire, style and personnel. The band is a vibrant and central part of worship; the group on this recording is the same that contributes week by week to the services at Brampton Grove, London, NW4.

    Recent recordings by the band, A Walk on the Light Side and A Life Worth Living, placed an emphasis on melody with some contemporary repertoire and occasional technical demand. Cristo Redentor follows in similar vein as it presents mostly lighter repertoire; some of it old, some new, lots of tunes, reflective and 'showy' solos, big-band, a technical challenge or two but all with the purpose of conveying the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  23. Song of Courage

    Musicians are often asked "what is your favourite piece of music?". If I'm asked, I often say, "the one I've just listened to!". The truth might be the piece I whistle most or the number I seem to think of all the time, but really it would be true to say that I do not have an 'all time' favourite Salvation Army piece, although most of these on this compilation would have been my favourite at one time or another. So, this album is a kind of 'Desert Island Disc' of several generations!
