Grenadier Guards premiere recordings

We have spent two days this week with the Band of the Grenadier Guards at Saint Andrew’s Garrison Church Aldershot. They were recording music which will shortly be available for streaming on the Household Division website.

Two of the items are premiere recordings. The Scottish composer Patrick Doyle is perhaps better known for his film scores and he was invited to compose his ‘Coronation March’. The music featured at the Coronation of King Charles III which took place on May 6th last year.

‘The Other Side of Silence’ was written by English composer Stephen Roberts. Originally written for brass band ‘It celebrates coming through lockdown to hearing live music once again’, with the title borrowed from George Eliot’s Middlemarch. it was used as the test piece for the 2022 Besson Swiss Open and has been reinscribed here for concert band.

The music from the recording will be available from the middle of April.
