    RAH MASSED BANDS BROADCAST

    Thanks for this, but..... I believe there is a track missing. If memory serves me right ( and I haven't heard this for over 30 years) Phil McCann also plays Alpine Echoes/Post Horn Galop. Any ideas whats happened to it? Regardless, brought back so many memories as my recording was lost when Dad...

    Brighouse's Performance of Breath of Souls

    Hi Keith Just trying to point out a) how good, in my view the offical recording sounds in an unmixed version and b) how they recorded this years RAH and that depending on the situation, different venues and events need different set up's as you've eloquently pointed out above. p.s. Different...

    Brighouse's Performance of Breath of Souls

    I can tell you now that the official recordings will be excellent (in my veiw) - having heard an unmixed version of the official recording, it reminds me of those old recordings from the 60's where the final note is completley oblitered by the applause and cheering of the audience. It adds that...

    Dyke will be recording a new CD of PLC's so assume this will also be on. I've no timeline on when its released but as I'm meeting up with Nick and co. next week, I'll try to find out more concrete dates. p.s. there was no live recordings made at the event.

    Durham League Contest Date

    Ah, I see the famous old argument has raised its head again. Not everyone can, or is able to, give up their time or offer help. However, suggestions have been made and ignored in the past, as have offers of help. It seems that by giving of your free time is an acceptable excuse for not...

    Durham League Contest Date

    ...which is a waste of time, as calls are never returned , wrong dates are given (i.e. the DLI contest which was originally given as midweek!!), or it takes weeks for information to be given. Added to this the continual cock-ups by the commitee (just look at last year when percussion equipment...

    Durham League Contest Date

    I know a few of bands who asked for it to be mentioned at the last meeting of the League. I take it that the date was A) discussed at the meeting on the 15th March and kept the same or B) it wasn't! As usual the Durham League make a mess of things. Doesn't matter where you're drawn or what...

    Durham League Contest Date

    Is the contest still scheduled for the 16th November (same day as Brass in Concert - which clever people picked that date?) or has it been changed to a more sensible date? Nothing has been issued since the last meeting, there's nothing on the league website and not everyone can attend meetings.

    RNCM Festival of Brass 2008

    For what it's worth as someone who spent half the time looking through a camera lens, the highlights for me were.... Dyke's 'Montage' and 'Laudate Dominum' - superb playing after what seemed a shakey start to the concert. The RNCM band playing Higgins' 'Forest Symphony', the fun playing of...

    RNCM Festival of Brass 2008

    Lord - after what he said to me during the photoshoot, don't tell Shaun Crowther I'm now classed as an 'aristocrat'. And don't tell poor Pete off for going to Anfield - I know he only went to cheer Havant and see a proper English team!!!!

    Help - BBC Programme from 1980's

    In 1988 the BBC made a documentary, for a local programmme, called (I think) 'Farrell in Pursuit of...' They followed a number of bands, including Desford, to the RAH for the Nationals where the test piece was 'Seascapes'. I can remember the camera crew being opposite me in one of the boxes...
