Cathedral on the Hill

We hope you enjoyed our 2020 'virtual' performance on the hill!

The piece of Music is "Highland Cathedral' by Michael Korb & Ulrich Roever, arranged for brass Band by Howard Lorriman.

As you can see, the band members have all been busy practising at home and have individually recorded our performances on smart phones in our bedrooms.  These have all been stiched together into the full band video performance by friend of the band, Gareth Hamer.  I'm sure you will agree, Gareth has done an amazing job and the band is enormously grateful to him for all his hard work.

We should also say a big thank you to Dale Curtis, who has allowed us to use his drone footage as part of the video.  Coincidentally, Dale is connected to the band, as his grandfather, Maurice Brown, was the band's Musical Director from 1919 to 1939, and played a major part in keeping the band alive when membership dwindled in the late 1950s / early 1960s.  The band owes a great debt indeed to Maurice.

Last and by no means least, the band thanks our Deputy Musical Director, David Lawrence, who has coordinated this special project for us.  We thank him for all his hard work in setting up backing tracks and sending them out to us, and for his patience as we returned our finished articles without reading his (very clear) instructions properly, recorded the wrong way around, etc. (or perhaps that was just me!)
