Did anybody go to the concert on Saturday night? What did you think? I thought that Grimethorpes programme, with the exception of Spectrum, was a total waste of a very good band. Foden's programme was very enjoyable, especially Glyn Williams excellent rendition of Rule Britannia, and Eric Ball's wonderful "Journey" to finish. Dyke was excellent. Pete Meechan's new work "Purcell Variants" is destined to be a classic, this young composer is going to be a big name before long. Dyke's soloists were sublime too especially young Mr. Doyle, for me he was man of the match. I presume that, after the exploits of Dyke's guest soprano player, there will soon be a new name for a popular brass band website appearing. It could be called 4barsrest drop com perhaps?
