    What's this "Saga of Haakon The Good" all about? An antedote to Hägar the Horrible? :rolleyes:

    It's a new lower section test piece which has been commissioned by a Norwegian band to play at their Nationals Championships next month.

    I was fortunate enough to play both Music for Battle Creek and Dances and Alleluias on the contest stage last year. Both are awesome compositions, though quite different from each other, really enjoyable (both to play and listen to) and are worthy additions to the brass band repertoire.

    I'll definately be buying this disk on the strength of those two pieces. Fans of Philips music who don't know these pieces won't be disappointed!!
