    There has been some discussion as to whether YBS have recorded it and it may be awaiting release.

    Your best bet I believe, would be to have chat nicely to Prof. King :D

    The only brass band recording is from the RNCM Festival of Brass 2006 where YBS played it. It was later broadcast on Listen to the Band BBC Radio 2 and so an archive recording may be available.

    Does this mean that none of the concerts on the Australian tour were recorded either? From the reviews of the tour and the more recent events, a highlights CD and or DVD would be an impressive legacy......"Kings of Australia.......too!" ;). On the other hand it might just be a sadly missed opportunity.

    However, as has been stated repeatedly, a fabulous dynasty has come to an end and I count myself very fortunate to have heard YBS live on three ocassions during that era. Thank you Professor King and all associated with YBS thus far and best wishes for the future.

    - so ... like Harrison's Dream (Graham), this is another work originally written for wind band then later adapted for brass band? Interesting!

    I believe that it was the wind band version that was commissioned by the marines following YBS playing the brass band original.

    Thanks to all for your responses. I'll get hold of the RM version in the meantime and have a listen.

    - maybe they should have mentioned that on the website, don't you think? Very difficult to tell with compositions that can bridge brass and winds. Chicken and Egg dilemma ... the composer is there to make money.

    To be honest our PDM is a BIG brass band guy so he probably heard them and then asked for them to be written for wind band. There are also versions of Year of the Dragon and Resurgam for wind band too. Although the Trombone solo is re written for oboe in YotD!!!!!
