Two unimportant musings on Dyke's 'Festival Music'

Two observations of no consequence on the excellent Festival Music CD:

1. Is the principal euphonium playing on Journey Into Freedom really the same player who appears on all the other tracks? :?:

2. Eric Ball sounds a bit like Enoch Powell, don't you think? :)
 
No, it's not the same player - well spotted. I missed one of the sessions and am very grateful for Glyn Williams for stepping in for me. Glyn's on Journey into Freedom - it's me for the rest.

Probably the latter I think

Mind you, what a first post! :D

Is this post falling foul of exactly what it's commenting on? :lol:

Also, Did Ben Rapp sit end chair for some of the sessions? I know he is a similar sounding player to Roger (being his teacher and all) but knowing his sound it sounds like him on a few of the Principals solos.

Now I have said that, I bet Roger was there for all of them now :oops:
