Fantasy Themed CDs

After the RNCM weekend, I got to thinking about my fantasy brass band CDs. Here's a selection:

1. War and Reconciliation: featuring Robin Holloway's two War Memorial pieces, From Hills and Valleys and Men Marching, with Bram Tovey's Requiem for a Charred Skull.

2. Brass & Voices CD: with Vinter's The Trumpets and Jo Horovitz's Samson (both still crying out for a digital recording)

3. A Derek Bourgeois CD featuring his pieces which haven't been recorded yet - Concerto Numbers 1, 2, and the Concerto for Quintet and Band (always thought YBS missed a trick with their recent CD - we've got Blitz and the Concerto Grosso on CD already)

4. A Shakespeare themed CD: take your pick from Henry V (Vaughan Williams or Maldwyn Price), Caliban (Arthur Butterworth), A Midsummer Nights Dream (Thomas Keighley), Othello (Drake Rimmer), King Lear (Drake Rimmer again), Illustrations (Phyllis Tate), Maquerade (Philip Wilby), Falstaff (Andrew Powell), Midsummer Music (Michael Ball), and many more I have forgotten no doubt.

Any advances?
