Grenadier Guards premiere recordings MHP224

We have completed our recent work with the Band of the Grenadier Guards which took place in Aldershot last month and in which they included two premiere recordings.

The first of these was the “King Charles III Coronation March” by the Scottish born composer Patrick Doyle.  He is better known for his prolific film score writing on films such as Henry V, Sense and Sensibility, Hamlet, and Harry Potter.

He was invited to compose his ‘Coronation March’ which featured at the Coronation of King Charles III which took place at Westminster Abbey in London on May 6th last year.

The second premiere recording was written by the English composer Stephen Roberts,

The Other Side of Silence’ was originally written for two brass bands It was commissioned by Leamington Music and celebrates coming through the covid lockdown to hear live music once again.

The title is borrowed from George Eliot’s 1871 book “Middlemarch” and the piece is in the form of eight variations that progress from blithe spirit through adversity to end in ecstatic jubilation.

It was used as a brass band test piece for the 2022 Besson Swiss Open Championships and was transcribed specifically by the composer for this recording.

The recorded items will be featured for download on the Household Division website, but you can listen on our Soundcloud site here:-
