Unified approach on new CD release

World of Brass has released a new CD by The Household Troops Band of The Salvation Army & Amsterdam Staff Band.

Amsterdam
  The new release was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic

'Unified' sees the two outstanding ensembles from The Household Troops Band of The Salvation Army & Amsterdam Staff Band perform a wide variety of works on a CD that was delayed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Concert

Talking about the release, Olaf Ritman, Bandmaster of the Amsterdam Staff Band stated: "2020 should have seen the Amsterdam Staff Band and The Household Troops Band give a unique, joint concert.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 virus caused the cancellation of the Troops' visit to The Netherlands and so the concert didn't take place. However, in January 2020, we recorded a number of tracks for an album which would have been released at the concert.

We're delighted that we are now able to share these recordings. The repertoire is a mix of fine music, mostly new, some of it already published, but all with the deeper message of God's love for us."
