In the Footsteps of Heroes

As with the Grenadier Guards’ CD Fields of Remembrance (SRC195), this recording was made for the Scots Guards to sell during a recent concert tour with the objective of raising money for the Colonel’s Fund Scots Guards supporting the war-wounded of the Regiment.

The Band of the Scots Guards, directed by Major Duggie Robertson, are on absolutely wonderful form here, and the Pipes & Drums of the 1st Battalion are also first-class.

This CD contains most of the music played on the concert tour and has several solo sets for Pipes and Drums.

You won’t hear Scottish military music played better than this!

The Music of the Royal Engineers

Sunday, October 11th, 2009

SRC136-Sleeve

A great programme of music associated with a great regiment who serve everywhere where you find the British Army. This CD includes both recently discovered gems from the past and a number of new compositions.

The Band of the Corps of Royal Engineers are based at Brompton Barracks in Chatham Kent and this CD was recorded in the wonderful Chapel in the adjacent Historic Naval Dockyard. The recording was made in the middle of the film set built to depict the House of Commons in the film Amazing Grace which was shot there soon afterwards and one of the tracks is that very song, with solo bagpipes. The programme is an attractive and historic mixture of music associated with the Corps of Royal Engineers (CRE) and of music arranged and composed by former Directors of Music. There are marches, troops, a mazurka, a trombone solo (The Acrobat), Post Horn Gallop and the regimental song Hurrah for the CRE, whose extraordinary text is enthusiastically sung by members of the Band.

Recorded in the Dockyard Chapel, Chatham
