Martin Cooke Posted October 21, 2007 Share Posted October 21, 2007 I think it was on a post here that I heard about this excellent new volume which I have subsequently purchased (in fact, I bought two by accident), and I wonder whether anyone else has tried it. Some of it isn't all that easy, I must say, but there is plenty of it and with one possible exception (I'll keep its identity to myself for now) it is all good quality and worth having a go at. I know there's been an awful lot of comment about Tubas and that for some members the word is all but unmentionable. I was brought up on the St Paul's Tubas and think you'd have to go a long way to knock the chancel tuba ands tuba clarion there. Still, the York one really is a bit of a bruiser isn't it? Dare I even say that I don't like it... at all? It never occured to me in the good old days of the KIng of Instruments LP with FJ playing the Cocker that it was such a whopper, but I suppose I was just listening on our little Bush gramophone and it didn't overwhelm. However, overwhelm it certainly does in JS-W's recording which comes free with this album. Anyway, has anyone else tried the music? Martin Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
