(Edit: Split from "Disappointing cd" thread)
I think that this CD is tremendous!
The 3 major works - Lorne Barry's Credo is awesome, Ken Downie has excelled himself once again in Christus Victor, and as for Dean Jones' Glorifico Aeternum, I have played a lot of Dean's Triumph Series and...
Did anyone happen to notice the guy who was shouting abuse @ the bands and soloist @ the gala concert in RAH following the national finals.
There was also someone that wolf whistled @ the conductor of the royal marines who was wearing very tight trousers, and voiced their opinions (very...
If its as good as 'golden slippers' its gonna be awesome - its got a real gem on it in the way of 'song of exultation' written by the same composer as 'golden slippers'.

Called me biased for being a member, but once again - no1 writes euphonium solos like salvation army composers:
The better world - an absolute gem love to hear thornton play this!
song of the brother - classic heard bob childs play this at canton salvation army, fantastic!
being a member of the Salvation Army, i tend to be biased, but who can beat David Daws! his sound is incredible, he's got a gorgeous tone, and as for range, stamina and technique, he beats people like roger webster hands down!

Golden slippers is the best cornet solo ever! :twisted:
