Saturday 1st July sees the launch of a brand new CD from the Rothwell Temperance Band entitled Orb & Sceptre.
The title track of the same name, is the famous march composed by Sir William Walton for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II on 2 June 1953 and kicks-off the musical tone with grandeur and regality, synonymous with the sound of RTB.
The 13-track CD boasts some high quality playing and features five of the band’s esteemed soloists, including RTB’s new principal cornet player Jon Hammond performing ‘On with the Motley’ on Eb Soprano Cornet, Andy Padgett (Baritone) playing the beautiful ‘Donegal Bay’ by Paul Lovatt-Cooper, Nick Walker (Trombone) playing ‘Dark Eyes,’ Dan Morgan (Euphonium) performing ‘Peace,’ and Vikki Holland (Flugel Horn) playing Fahy’s ‘Magh Seola.’
With music to captivate every sense, this CD is an exciting, high quality musical journey, guaranteed to make you keen to catch the band in a live performance.
