    The idea of cataloguing five substantial works on one compact disc is an extention of the Buy As You View (Cory) Band's successful 'Brass Band Classics' series of recordings. The Promised Land aims to recreate the idea of a listenable varied programme of substantial brass band works, using living composers from the same era. Curnow, Gregson, Downie, Wood and Sparke were all born within eight years of each other and their maturity and experience in writing for the brass band idiom is clearly evident throughout this disc.

    Track list;
    The Promised Land (Kenneth Downie) Studio recording, not live performance from EBBC 2006
    Of Men and Mountains (Edward Gregson)
    The Year of the Dragon (Philip Sparke)
    Trittico (James Curnow)
    A Tear in the Fabric of Time (Gareth Wood)

    Also now available is sheet music for The Promised Land commissioned by the Buy As You View Band and first performed by them as their own choice test piece at the European Brass Band Contest 2006 in Belfast.
