Hell I don't care what anyone else thinks, I'll nominate 'Voice of the Tenor Horn' by the one and only Sheona White, if only because by listening to it I nearly picked up the best instrumentalist at a contest today :)

Apart from that it's a great display of what the tenor horn can do and what a great sound it has. Plus Sheonas an amazing player!

Canadian Brass - Greatest Hits and Legend Pete Roberts.

Equal best for me.

I'm going with an old favourite, Grimethorpe Classic Brass. What makes it even better is, I just bought it on CD to replace my old worn cassette and you get two bonus tracks that weren't on the original tape

Think i'll go with an oldy too.
The Complete Champions Black Dyke from 1985. Playing is just superb, and for £4.25 you just couldn't go wrong.
Awesome CD.
 
Wow, what a task!
How about 'A Night at the Opera' played by Grimethorpe and conducted by Elgar Howarth.
Highlights for me are a beautiful 'Softly Awakes My Heart' from Mark Walters on flugel (listen out for sublime euphonium countermelody from Robin Taylor) and the 30 miniye epic, Alexander Owens 'Grand Selection from Die Walkure'.

Any Steven Mead CD's, he's a top bloke and a fantastic player! :wink:
So i'll go for his new one "Euphonium Magic," utterly superb CD.

So difficult when choosing from such a wide range. Favourites for me would include Essence of Time (Black Dyke/David King), Concerto (Dyke, with a fine Horowitz concerto from Bob Childs) and Faireys' "Diamond Jubilee" double cd.

If I can only nominate one, however, I think it would have to be "Pictures at an Exhibition" by Britannia, including Pictures itself and, for me, the very under-rated "In Memoriam RK".
