World Class Marches of the Salvation Army Vol. III
Product Code: BDB 0077


In Salvation Army music, the word 'festival' refers to a sacred concert. 'Festival' marches are, therefore, intended for indoor concert use. The first two volumes of Black Dyke Band's World Class Marches of The Salvation Army series featured marches published in The Salvation Army General Series Brass Band Journal and were suitable for use on parade and indoors at various functions.

This third volume of World Class Marches of The Salvation Army contains marches published in the Festival Series within the 80-year period 1923 to 2003, appearing on this recording in chronological order of publication date. When the Festival Series was launched in 1923, editors chose music designed to meet the needs of advanced bands, those wanting a greater technical challenge. Such has been the hallmark of most festival marches ever since. The range of composers chosen on this recording embraces mostly the modern, post World War II era, though several early examples are included to provide an appropriate historical context.
