“Remembrance” MHP 1709

We have started work on yet another project with the British Army spending three days recording The Band of the Parachute Regiment based at Merville Barracks in Colchester.

The music recorded will be included in two CDs which will be issued in the new year, one of which, Remembrance, contains a selection of the traditional music associated with Remembrance Services. The recording aspects of the project will be completed when a further visit is made to Colchester in early March 2010.
