Geographical Brass Ensembles
Jessica's presentation on Wednesday included the CDs Dallas Trumpets and The London Horn Sound. Both were outstanding recordings, and both have a geographical connection, signifying the unique qualities of the sound styles of those two places.
Our library has a copy, or you can buy Dallas Trumpets online here. On Arkiv music, they also list another recording called Music for Festive Occassions.
The London Horn Sound is part of a larger series of "London Sound" recordings available on Cala Records. The series includes The London Trumpet Sound and the London Trombone Sound, in addition to cello, double bass and viola ensembles.
