    I'm sure it must be. We also had the Orange and Blue Unity series books with gems such as Melodies from Great Composers and Kasangulu. I had to be able to play Merrily Onward and Llanfair from the Orange book before I could join the YP band.

    Factually correct but Eric Ball has often been quoted as saying to the ISB when he first rehearsed it with them, 'Gentlemen, Resurgam has come home'.

    Add Daystar to the list please.

    There is a terrific piece called 'Thy King Cometh' by Les Condon.

    I have an LP from the 1978 congress on which NYSB presented the work (Derick Kane premiered Better World on the same programme), but I have not heard a band play it since. Noone to my knowledge has recorded it either.

    Does anyone on here know anything about it? Carl, maybe you could nudge the right people for the ISB to programme it again? Has anybody here actually played the piece. It is not published incidentally, as far as I know.
