Love the arrangement & being a true Canadian I love it.

Always been a blessing to me since I played it for the first time, about 1954

3 Tone Poem - "The Kingdom Triumphant" - The International Staff Band - SLRZ4005 - Composer: Eric Ball - Conductor: Lt. Co. B. Adams
This piece has everything for a brass band and clearly tells us who is in charge of the Kingdom.

6 Song - "I'll go in the strength of the Lord" - The Portsmouth Citadel Songster Brigade - BHSS0109 - Composer: Edward Turney/Ivor Bosenko - Conductor: John Bird
This songs says it all, with His strength we will go all the way.

7 Hymn - "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" - The Upper Norwood Band - BAB3513 - Composer: Thomas Chisolm - Conductor: Major George Whittingham
A worldwide favourite "Morning by morning his mercies I see". So true...

8 The Canadian - FGS1182 - The Canadian Staff Band - Composer: P. Merritt - Conductor: Capt Robert Redhead
There are many recordings of this beautiful Canadian march, but we will stay with the requests of our webmaster Ian and this is the only one I can find. Reminds me of my younger days playing the theme arrangement prior to our concerts in the park.
