This must be one of my favourite pieces. I was a bit disappointed when I searched the title on google to find comments relating to this piece on this site (i think) and more so the ISB's "Jubilee" album which it features on. For me I find Jubilee a superb album;people made comments kind of suggesting they felt the ISB play "safe" and don't risk too much relating to this album. The other slight disappointing comments were the ones made by someone saying this.. "This band should be on the cutting edge of SA music, but it seems to prefer to play it safe instead..... Save your money!" Well each to their own but the ISB are absolutely top notch and can match the best. I can't think of much "safe" playing on the Jubilee CD and if they meant overall then that really is a bit of a joke. I suppose pieces like the aforementioned G.E and the likes of The Kingdom Triumphant, Journey into freedom etc..are pretty safe?! I'd also like to see bands knock out the march "Jubilee" which is only from the General series. Not many places where you can stick anything on the stand in the bandroom and nock it out straight away. At the end of the day the ISB is an absolute credit to the Salvation Army and I think most of the brass band world would agree they are of the highest order. It's nice that some people might criticise music SA bands come out with , but yet are quick to play Army pieces in their "outside" band. Sometimes the ISB ,might be playing safe ,but the thoughts and feelings for the listeners behind their playing are far more different from playing mathematical nonsense just to impress a judge and for him to say "you've won". Also the ISB can't play what people consider cutting egde if it isn't out there for our bands to play. Our bands don't really outside or non sacred music ,pieces often feature songs and the listener is not necessarily listening out for "cutting edge". Its a great testament to the SA that they can produce bands of this quality. You have to remember that there are far more brass players out there which outside bands can have than the amount for Army bands. For a start you have the be in the sa and be a soldier to play in the ISB. These are just my opinions and obviously everyone is welcome to their own opinion. Must say I do think Dean Jones is a bit of a genius with "Glorifico Aeternum".
