Description

‘Lamplighter’ is the latest recording project with the 2nd Rossendale Scout Group Band who are based in Bacup in Lancashire.

The original recording took place in early March of last year before all the current problems with coronavirus. However, we have undertaken some considerable post-production work which includes tracks by the Bacup born international opera singer, Sean Ruane.

Also featured in the album are two fine solo items, a bass feature and two specifically commissioned works. Both of these latter works are by composer Dan Price who now lives and works in East Lancashire.

The title track, ‘Lamplighter’, is a reflective piece using as a source three poems one of which is by the first world war poet Siegfried Sassoon.

‘Flanders Fields’ was commissioned by the Band in 2014 to commemorate the centenary of the Great War. It uses a chorale as the basis of the musical content. The work starts with a narration of an extract from a letter from a father to his son.  The original letter belongs to the family of a Band member.
