So, at last, the eagerly awaited and much requested Christmas recording is here.  Although a Christmas recording the band actually recorded the tracks back in February 2006, complete with Christmas cake to get us all in the festive mood and much to the amusement of the staff at Peel Hall, Salford.  We hope you enjoy the easy listening music we bring to your from the lively “Troika” to the mellow sounds of Andrew MacDonald playing the popular “The Holy City”.

One again we bring you music from our resident composer Mr John Parkinson (Asway in a Manger & O Come Emmanuel).  John has been composing for the band for two years now and we look forward to each piece come through, as the music always seems to have something special.  We were delighted to be joined on this recording by our friends the Bolton Catholic Musical & Choral society who sang with the band in four well-known carols.
