    Full podcast at The Grimethorpe Colliery Band is part of the rich history of brass bands connected to industry in regional Britain. The GCB is from South Yorkshire and was formed in 1917 as a leisure activity for the workers at the colliery. In the latter half of the 20th Century the band's most famous conductor Elgar Howarth commissioned a large amount of modern repertoire for brass bands including the Grimethorpe. Famous composers including Harrison Birtwistle, Toru Takemitsu and Hanz Werner Henze wrote especially for this outfit and the 30 plus strong band is in to play a brand new piece called Peacemakers by Dan Price commemorating allied forces in both World Wars.

    You'll Never Walk Alone is a show tune from the 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel. In the second act of the musical, Nettie Fowler, the cousin of the protagonist Julie Jordan, sings You'll Never Walk Alone to comfort and encourage Julie when her husband, Billy Bigelow, the male lead, falls on his knife and dies after a failed robbery attempt. It is reprised in the final scene to encourage a graduation class of which Louise (Billy and Julie's daughter) is a member. The now invisible Billy, who has been granted the chance to return to Earth for one day in order to redeem himself, watches the ceremony and is able to silently motivate the unhappy Louise to join in the song.

    Derek Bourgeois wrote this Serenade for his own wedding, to be played by the organist as the guests left the ceremony. Not wishing to allow them the luxury of proceeding in an orderly 2/4, the composer wrote the work in 11/8, and in case anyone felt too comfortable, he changed it to 13/8 in the middle! The work has now been released in a number of different orchestrations of the original version for organ.
