🎥 NEW VIDEO! 🎥  

Before the second national lockdown started, members of the band had been meeting in small ensembles to rehearse and enjoy making music together again after a long time out of the band room.
We decided to start making some recordings and videos of our efforts and we’re excited to share with you our latest release* – ‘Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence’ by Edward Bairstow and arranged by our composer in residence, Adam D J Taylor.
Originally for choir, this piece was written just as much for the space it was to be performed in, York Minster, as it was for the services it accompanied. With lots of pauses to enjoy the Minsters long reverb, the band simply had to perform this gorgeous piece in a church. Huge thanks to Fr Philip Carr and the parish of St. Julie’s in Eccleston for letting the band use their beautiful building.
We hope you enjoy our latest video featuring some super talented members from the middle of the band!

Music available for purchase from

*Recorded before second national lockdown and in line with local guidance.
