SRC – The Specialist Recording Company
- The Specialist Recording Company was formed in 2001 to present a new approach to military band recordings, featuring the best military bands recording a wide range of repertoire to the highest standards with top classical production values.
- The SRC catalogue includes old favourites and forgotten masterpieces from the past, which together with more modern compositions provide a unique listening experience.
- Recordings are made in ‘live acoustic’ venues such as the historic Chapel at the Royal Hospital Chelsea and at Woolwich Town Hall.
- SRC recordings are universally acclaimed for the quality of playing and for the recorded sound.
‘An exciting new approach to Military Band Recordings: … the quality of the work is evident in these recordings … meticulous attention to the score … to ensure the finished product is as near perfect as possible and free of those slips which irritate when heard for the umpteenth time but which sadly are all too common in current band recordings … all in all this is a series which fully deserves support.’
Alan Hardwick – Band International
‘… the playing is quite outstanding throughout the discs … the sound is nearer to an orchestra than that of a normal military band, something we have all strived to get but rarely achieved … I consider the playing recording and packaging of these recordings are amongst the finest available today – anywhere, I recommend this series unreservedly’.
