    Quite Simple Really :) Just investigating what people would have as their perfect playlist if they were to do a concert. Just a little bit of fun kinda' thread. Just a quick guideline: It would be nice to also see a congregational song, and prehaps some pieces which are not army pieces :)
    Have Fun.

    The Southern Cross (Brian Bowen)
    Cornet Solo - Pleasure in His Service (Bruce Broughton)
    Victory For Me (Wilfred Heaton)
    Canadian Folk Song Suite (Morley Calvert)
    Trombone Solo - Concertino (Erik Leidzen)
    Bolero for Band (I Have Decided to Follow Jesus) - (William Himes)


    Make His Praise Glorious (William Gordon)
    Congregational Song - O Boundless Salvation
    Euphonium Solo - Variants on St. Francis :)oops:)
    A Pilgrim Song - (Thomas Rive)
    My Comfort and Strength - (Brian Bowen)
    The Good Old Way - (Bruce Broughton)

    You can probably tell from my program that I've been out of the SA for the last 16 years and my knowledge of current repertoire is dodgy at best. Nevertheless, it's tough to beat composers like Heaton, Broughton, Calvert, Rive, Bowen, Leidzen, etc.

    It is indeed. This is a very good programme David :) I like it.

    and if anyone can name the composer of the song 'I Have Decided to Follow Jesus' without looking it up I will be very impressed !

    Kevin Metcalf has just recorded Pleasure In His Service with the CSB; new CD entitled Festivity is due out soon.

    I too like the selection made by David.

    I've always enjoyed Dean Goffin's cornet solo Victorious and My Strength, My Tower.

    I would include The Call of the Righteous or Festivity (Leslie Condon); The Dawning (Peter Graham); The Lord is King (R. S-A.); and one of the old marches - perhaps Sons of the Army.

    I think my "ideal" program would become less than ideal because it would need three intermissions at least and would last about 10 hours :)

    Folk Dances - Shostokavich (is that how it's spelled?)
    Fill the World with Music
    There's only one flag for me

    That would be a great program, Dave.

    No Condon or Ball, though. As much as I like Bowen and Broughton, I'd only include one from each.

    I'd include The Call of the Righteous and either The Triumph of Peace or The Kingdom Triumphant.

    And maybe something from Kenneth Downie - any of the devotional items, which are just simply beautiful in terms of both musicality and impact.

    Army of the Brave (Marshall)
    Songs of the Morning (Ball)
    Clear Skies (Ball) cornet solo
    Crimond (Graham)
    Light Walk (Gott) flugel feature


    Lift up the Banner (Silvferberg)
    Wonders Begin (Larsson arr ?) trombone feature
    The Call of the Righteous (Condon)
    Just as I am (Heaton)
    The Kingdom triumphant
    Crown Him with Many Crowns - old GS arrangement for band and congregation

    "encore" : Praise (Heaton)

    Given time, I could come up with countless more........."The Divine Pursuit", "Divine Communion", "Celebration", "Great and Glorious", "Cobham Hall" and other Bearcroft marches, etc etc...the list is endless.

    Good to see Marshall getting a look in there bbg ! I'd kick off with his march "Mighty to Save" me , and I'd throw in some Bearcroft along the line , either "Better World" or "Timepiece". Also another vote for "My Comfort and Strength" !!
    Redhead's "Quintessence" would be in there as well for me. As for a congregational song , we'd have Bearcroft's "Shout Aloud Salvation" with massed songster brigades. We'll have the gig at the RAH and BM Clack can also accompany a song or two on the organ.
    As with John Brooks , my full programme listing would be several hours long but the encore would be Enfield doing "The Red Shield" !!!

    I have to agree with you on "Mighty to Save" Essex Elvis, a wonderful march.

    I think this would be my programme :
    (Apologies for not having some composers names. I am not very knowledgable on these)(and also my spelling hah)

    Excelsior - Dudley Bright
    El Es El Senior
    In this Quiet Moment -Bosanko

    The Flag of Freedom
    From that Sacred Hill - Trombone Trio


    Laudes Domini
    Glorifico Aeternum
    Dance Like David - Andrew Mackereth?

    Congregational Song - How Great Thou Art

    Mambo Number 5
    Montreal Citadel
    The Lord is Gracious

    Final Hidden Piece One of Either
    - Toccata in D Minor - JS Bach Arr. Farr
    - Mighty To Save - Marshall

    A hard choice, and many more could be put in. A long programme though I think :/ Maybe too long.

    Kingdom Triumphant

    Good choices, Ian. Although you'd probably need two or three bands - that is a LOT of playing in one go :).
