    The European Brass Band Championships of 2007 marks the fifth anniversary of the launch of World of Brass and, to celebrate, we will have three new and significant recordings available for the first time.

    Vienna Nights is the latest release from Black Dyke Band and as well as including the first studio recording of Philip Wilby's test piece of that name also includes a long-awaited studio recording of Dove Descending. You may have heard that Dove Descending will be played at one of this year's BBC Promenade Concerts (Saturday 28th July).

    Untold Stories is the first solo CD from tenor horn soloist Owen Farr who, on this disc, is accompanied by his own band, Cory. The repertoire contains a pleasing mix of familiar and new repertoire which we think will be of interest to the tenor horn players on this forum.
    Owen we be at the World of Brass trade stand on Saturday afternoon to sign copies of his new CD. He'll be there once Cory have played their own-choice test piece.

    Grimethorpe in Concert Volume III will also be available, at long last!

    Don't worry if you're not going to be in Birmingham as all these new titles (and more!) are listed on the World of Brass website. They are also available to pre-order from too.

    Is the recording of Northern Lights, on this cd, the same recording as on A Golden Year, or different?

    Would be interested to hear how VN compares with the live winning performance.

    I do like Phillip Wilby's stuff, even if you have to listen to it at least 10 times before you like it.:eek:

    Not sure although the track times differ, 12.31 on Vienna Nights and 13.16 on A Golden Year.

    By the way, we've listed one copy of Vienna Nights on Ebay this morning starting at £12.95 with a 'Buy It Now' at £13.95.
