About the album

From way back, wind instruments have been called on, whether separately or in group, for liturgical services. The brass band movement developed in Britain in the second half of the nineteenth century, the bands were immediately called on to participate in the religious prayer services and accompany the mass choir singing. As next to mass singing, the brass band is the most popular musical exponent in Britain, it should not be surprising that this phenomenon is closely linked to public religious life. This explains why hymns continue to be invariably part of the repertoire. The combination of the organ with the brass band is a similar phenomenon. Also in other countries where both the Christian churches and the brass band culture are extant, the traditional hymns are part of the repertoire; this is also the case in The Netherlands. This is why this compact disc was recorded: the “Christian Brass band ‘Excelsior”, conducted by Rieks van der Velde, and organist Martin Zonnenberg play a serious of classical English hymn tunes.
