After a decade and more of the ‘Essential’ Dyke, the band from Queensbury strikes musical ‘Gold’ with the first in a new series of recordings showcasing its concert repertoire, its unique sound and its great soloists. With the passing of Dr Roy Newsome on 10th October 2011, the brass band movement lost one of its greatest servants and ambassadors. Over the years, Roy conducted many memorable performances of Resurgam and its inclusion on this album is dedicated to his memory. Available to download from World of Brass Tunes now. Available on CD for the first time from the World of Brass trade stand at the North West Regional Brass Band Championships on Sunday 26th February 2012.
