    Hello Everyone

    Here is today’s show with the playlist.

    Sir Harold Malcolm Watts Sargent (29.4.1895 – 3.10.1967) was an English conductor, organist and composer widely regarded as Britain's leading conductor of choral works. He was associated with many national music ensembles and choirs .

    As chief conductor of London's festival the Proms from 1948 to 1967, he was one of the best-known English conductors. Taking over the Proms from Sir Henry Wood, he and two assistants conducted the two-month season between them. By the time he died, he was assisted by a large roster of international guest conductors.

    He was encouraged to begin conducting brass bands by Harry Mortimer. He conducted the Men O'Brass on a number of recordings. In 1946 he arranged Mozart's Fantasia in F for brass bands. It was used in the 1948 National Brass Band Championships Area finals. It was also used at the British Open at Belle Vue in 1960

    We have one of his brass band arrangements on today's show.
