Reviewed by Stephen Luff

This disc showcases the finalists of The 2009 National Brass Band Championships held in the Royal Albert Hall. The opening track title track played by the winners, the Black Dyke Band, is a tribute to the work of Eric Ball and was the contested piece at the Championship section. With its warm climaxes and animated sections, this is a truly magnificent 14 plus minutes of listening pleasure, and sets the pace for a CD of musicians who are top of their game. Suo Gan , is a sublime piece played by the Cory Band and features soloist trombone playing by Christopher Thomas. Other tracks of note are "A Scot's Miscellany" played by The City Of Brass Band and "Brillante" performed by The Cory Band and featuring an outstanding euphonium solo by David Childs. A great reminder of this prestigious event.
