‘Fraternity’ Woodfalls Band MHP719

brass band CD recording of the Woodfalls Band at the Lighthouse Theatre Mountbattan School Romsey, October 2019

We have returned from three days recording in Romsey in Hampshire working with the Championship Section Woodfalls Band.

Recorded at the Lighthouse Theatre at the Mountbatten School, the CD project is based around Thierry Deleruyelle’s magnificent descriptive composition, ‘Fraternity. The music was written specifically for the European Brass Association Championships in 2016.

This work commemorates the 110th anniversary of the mining disaster of Courrières in northern France where  a coaldust explosion – the cause of which is not known with certainty – devastated the coal mine on the 10th of March 1906 causing the death of some 1,099 workers.

Amongst other titles included in the project are six fine solo contributions together with works by Peter Graham and Jonny Bates.

The CD will be available in time for Christmas and you can read all about the Band’s activities on their website and Facebook pages.
