Frank Renton: Still Listening to the Band Christmas Special - Ep 43

December 24, 2019

Whether you’re doing some last-minute wrapping, preparing the sprouts or jetting off on a festive holiday this hour of brilliant brass music is just the thing to have with you.  Frank recalls conducting Sleigh Bells and Brass, a Brass Band of Battle Creek CD which has the band at the top of its game. We have two classic arrangements from The International Staff Band of the Salvation Army and The North Carolina Brass Band unwrap a musical adaptation of the famous poem A Visit from Santa better known to us as ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. Matt Ford and Fodens go carolling and Manger Mussikklag provide that quite moment of contemplation in their gorgeous recording of O Magnum Mysterium.  It’s the best hour of brass music you’ll find anywhere this Christmas.
