Remembrance

We have spent two further days this week in Colchester with the Band of The Parachute Regiment putting the finishing touches to their CD ‘Remembrance’ which is due for release to coincide with this year’s Remembrance Day Services in November.


The recorded items on this occasion were a second version of  John Brunning’s song ‘When Poppies Fall’. On this occasion the vocal was provided by the Scottish operatic tenor, John Innes, “The Peoples Tenor”. John, a former Army Musician has raised over £60,000 for Army Charities and all the monies raised with this latest recording will be donated to the charity ‘Help for Heroes’.


The second piece was composed, arranged and performed by the band’s saxophonist, Kate Whittaker. ‘Song for Joe’ is dedicated to her brother Private Joe Whittaker of the 4th Batallion The Parachute Regiment who was killed in Afghanistan two years ago.
