Performer: Grimethorpe Colliery Band. Conductor: Elgar Howarth. Composer: Johann II Strauss, Camille Saint-Saens, Giuseppe Verdi, Richard Wagner. Audio CD (April 14, 2007). I'm amazed at the musical skills heard on the CD, but I found the lengthy Wagner track a bit much for my taste. I love the fullness of their sound, and with the understanding that they are playing arrangements for brass band instead of orchestra, I was able to hear harmony parts that must get buried with a full orchestra.
