Notes and Editorial Reviews

John Philip Sousa’s compositions and the unprecedented international popularity of the Sousa Band helped establish the identity of a nation still culturally innocent and full of brash new energy. Sousa’s patriotism is represented in the Globe and Eagle March, the inspiring Keeping Step with the Union March and the setting of war verses for the We Are Coming March. Upbeat pieces such as the Tally Ho Overture contrast with the Sunday hymn fantasy In Pulpit and Pew, the fantasy In Parlour and Street, a medley of popular, operetta and operatic tunes, and a charmingly original version of Sousa’s favorite folk-song Bonnie Annie Laurie.

 Fabulous! February 28, 2013 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "Naxos' impressive series of John Phillip Sousa's compositions has now reached 11 disks of wind band music, plus 3 of his orchestral works. This latest edition, featuring the very excellent Royal Swedish Navy Band, is simply outstanding. The Swedes clearly had a lot of fun making this recording, judging by the jaunty, ebullient, and sympathetic sound they produced. Including lively and humorous marches, wind band overtures, and pieces based on known hymn tunes and folk songs, Vol. 11 provides a great light listening experience. If you have not yet sampled any part of Naxos' Sousa project, this fine release has much to offer, and I think it is an excellent way to start. Strong recommendations." Report Abuse
 Keith Brion January 25, 2013 By DAMIAN CUFFEL (HOUSTON, TX) See All My Reviews "If there is any word that one can apply to Keith Brion, it is 'impeccable'. Alas, one word can hardly encompass the treasure that Keith Brion's recordings have to offer. His recordings are definitive records of the spirit of the time of John Philip Sousa. The Great Sousa is so fortunate to have such a proponent and meticulous practitioner of his musical ethics in the digital age." Report Abuse
