‘Shining Sword’ The Band of The Household Cavalry MHP219

Shining Sword The Band of The Household Cavalry recording
We have completed our work with ‘The Band of The Household Cavalry’ and the project is now in the process of manufacture and available for release at the end of the month..
Their new CD, ‘Shining Sword’ is the first recording by the Band for some ten years and features the premiere symphonic wind band recording of Edward Gregson’sVariations on Laudate Dominum’. This extended version of the work is arranged by Rob Wiffin, presently the Professor of Conducting at the Royal Military School of Music, Kneller Hall London.
Other substantive works by English composers Philip Sparke and Nigel Hess are also included in this eclectic programme of music.
Amongst the more traditional military fayre, selected highlights include the ‘Fanfare for a Royal Wedding’. This music was written for the occasion of the Queen’s granddaughter Princess Eugenie’s wedding in October 2018 by the Band’s current Director of Music, Major Justin Matthews. By way of musical contrast, ‘Godspeed’ is exciting and innovative music by the critically acclaimed American composer Stephen Melillo.
