    They record all the performances at the Nationals - so somewhere, there are 19 recordings of varying standards of the 4th section finalists from a fortnight ago. St Brewards band won it so they'd be the ones to go for.

    I think there is normally a CD of all the winning bands performances from the National Championships each year. I don't know how long you'd have to wait for that though.

    The Harrogate recording we have at Dronfield Band is of good quality....and the playing's not too bad either :-D

    Sorry - don't know. Our supremely well organised Treasurer sorted it. I'll ask him and get back to you.

    It is a Doyen recording that we have - so the info from KMJ should get you access to it.

    Yes have listened to it and I was sad and have a score so followed through. It was a good performance but cant really judge it as havent heard what you were against to be honest.

    There was a few nerves but not many and some tuning and intonation in sctions that could of been better. I could give you a whole review but you have a guy in the middle John D who knows what the bands weaknesses are and what was strong and you guys will be a force to beat next year.

    But I am looking forward to that
