5.0 out of 5 stars Great instrumental Christmas music 7 Sep 2009
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Although brass bands are by no means limited to Britain, they are a quintessentially British (or, more accurately, English) tradition. The Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band may date back in some form to 1858, but regards 1881 as its official year of formation, which is still 125 years before I wrote this review in 2006 (yes, it's dated 2009 because it sat on my old computer for three years, isolated from the world outside). The band had an unexpected UK number two hit (only Paul McCartney stopped them from being number one) around Christmas 1978 with Floral dance, an old folk tune, but they have recorded a diverse range of material that includes pop and rock tunes, military marches, gospel tunes, classical pieces and traditional folk music.

This collection of twenty Christmas tunes is presented in their typical style. If you remember Floral dance, you'll know what to expect. The track selection is dominated by carols that are popular in Britain, although there's one tune (Christmas awake) that I don't recognize. I look forward to hearing a vocal version one day.

This is a wonderful Christmas album from one of the best and most famous brass bands in the world. It neatly complements another Christmas album by a famous brass band, the Grimethorpe White Christmas album, which mostly focuses on the festive songs rather than the carols. That album includes three carols not featured here (When a child is born, Little drummer boy, Mary`s boy child) and includes parts of other carols in two medleys. Apart from the pieces in those two medleys, there is no duplication between the Grimethorpe album and this one.

Bought this as it reminded me of traditional Christmases past, and listening to the playlist found them all enjoyable, played to a high standard, relaxing, and got me very much into the spirit of my kind of Christmas.
