    Dear all of tMP,

    I'm looking for a recording of Michael Tippett's 'Festal Brass & Blues' but can only find it on one cd only available from the US.

    Does anyone know where I might be able to find it in the UK or even better online anywhere? Done a lot of searching around but can't seem to find it unfortunately.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    Thanks in advance.

    Try this:


    It appears to be an amalgam of the two recordings London Collegiate Brass did for the CRD label. The Tippett reference on the cover is indeed the Festal B & B.

    There is also a recording of it by the Wallace Collection on the Collins label, but I think that has been unavailable for many years.

    Other pieces on the disc include The First Shoot, Downland Suite and Russian Funeral.

    Fantastic thank you very much James! The only one I could find was the Wallace Collection from the States which was about £40!

    Thanks again
