The Band of the Grenadier Guards: Director of Music Major Barry Wassell.
This recording was specially commissioned by The Colonel’s Fund (The Colonel in this case being the Duke of Edinburgh) for a concert tour in 2008 raising money for this fund which provides support for Grenadiers who were severely wounded in recent conflicts.
This is a typical bandstand programme, with music in many different styles superbly played by one of the world’s finest military bands, renowned for the warmth and depth of their sound.
This CD features a new work Fields of Remembrance by the distinguished composer Nigel Clarke
Recorded in the warm acoustic of All Saints Church East Finchley, London
