We made a welcome return to the Band of the Household Cavalry this week and met up with a number of old friends in Maidenhead. Our last visit to them was in 2019 when we recorded their successful album “Shining Sword“.
On this occasion we recorded six funeral marches played recently by the Bands of the Royal Corps of Army Music. These were featured at the State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Monday 19th of September 2022.
Also included in the recorded items were the Last Post and Reveille. These were played by the same State Trumpeters of the Household Cavalry who performed at the funeral service held that day at Westminster Abbey in London.
The recorded product will shortly be available for free download on the website of the Household Division.
