Regal Zonophone was a British record label formed in 1932, following the merger of the Regal and Zonophone labels.

Over a 30 year period, The Salvation Army recorded many of its fine bands and songster brigades on this label. These old 78s, Extended Play (EP) and Long Play (LP) records provide an encapsulated history of The Salvation Army and its musical heritage.

Modern technology has seen most of these old records discarded and subsequently they are seldom played or heard anymore. This website sets out to bring them alive again as well as providing a historical and educational resource.

Explore the website, listen to the original music, see the record labels and read the sleeve notes. Most of all, enjoy the heritage that is Salvation Army music.

What are your favourite Salvation Army tracks and why?

Based loosely on the BBC Radio programme ‘Desert Island Discs’, you can join our list of Castaways and share your top eight tracks.

Choose the tracks you would take to your remote island and let us know why you have chosen those pieces.


You can contribute your old records to the Regal Zonophone archive collection and help preserve the great tradition of Salvation Army recordings.

We are looking for:

  •  any 78s, EPs, LPs, Cassettes or CDs no longer commercially available and currently not in our archive,
  •  artwork, covers or inserts missing from our archive,
  •  any information about the musicians, the music groups, the conductors, anything on the recordings that can be added to enrich the user experience.
