    We've been looking at Exodus for a little while now, although we have not played it out as yet. It has elements that recur in Resurgam, and has a couple of declamatory phrases for basses and bass trombone that call for a bit of stamina!

    If you're after a recording of "Exodus" you can find it on a CD (which I think was the first double CD the International Staff Band produced) called "Blazon" which was produced in 1991.

    I thought I'd played an Eric Ball version of Exodus, but on checking it was a John Knight arrangement :(

    Sounds of Brass Series Vol 17 (Decca SB317) did include Easter Hymn from Cavalleria Rusticana (Mascagni arr Eric Ball), however, if it was ever published (we had the manuscript)

    Exodus is one of Eric Ball's early Salvation Army classics and tells in music the story of the escape of the Hebrews from slavery into Egypt.

    The International Staff Band recorded this again in 2001 and it appears on their CD 'Glory Glory'.
