I was pleased to find this cd as just a few weeks ago i performed Diversions on a Bass Theme and Rhapsody for Brass in a concert. I have to say that i wasn't at all disappointed with the recording as it is such a good quality. Grimethorpe band were at the top of their game at the time this was recorded and i enjoyed listeneing to the pieces again. These particular pieces are indeed just 2 of the great brass band contesting pieces and i would recommend a keen brass player to get a hold of this cd!!

Although some of the works are perhaps not quite as good as on Volume 1, this CD again shows that there is a high quality repetoire of music for brass band without descending to musical "junk food" or simply playing test pieces to show-off the technical competence of the players.
