Hanging with the Canadians

North York Temple Corps building

Hey everybody, I'm back from an excellent few days in Canada. The purpose of my trip was to lead a spiritual retreat for the North York Temple Band of The Salvation Army, based in Toronto. 

Under the capable leadership of Bandmaster Glenn Barlow, the band is presently riding the crest of a wave; boasting a thriving membership (most of whom are under the age of 25), a catalogue of CD recordings and a forthcoming tour of the UK in May 2013.

Posted by Martin Cordner on Sunday, September 23, 2012, In : events & engagements 

I'm pleased to tell you that I recently accepted an invitation from North York Temple Band to be the guest at their spiritual retreat over 9-11 November this year.  I'm thrilled to have the invitation and excited at the prospect of a reunion with friends I met at the 2010 Senior Music Camp, Jackson's Point. The formal arrangements are being made but all being well, during our forthcoming holiday time at the end of October/early November, I'll fly to Canada to be part of this event.

It's hard for me to be totally objective when it includes two of my own works (!) but for the benefit of those wondering about whether to splash-out £15 for the CD, here are my thoughts on the end result.

Minor issues

New North York Temple Band recording

Posted by Martin Cordner on Friday, February 10, 2012, In : cd recordings 

It's been a thrill to learn recently that two of my earlier works, Battle Call and Amazing Grace have been chosen for the new North York Temple Band (Toronto, Canada) CD recording.  

Bandmaster Glenn Barlow has chosen a repertoire of not-yet published (and possibly previously unrecorded?) manuscripts. The music has been written entirely by younger composers (yes - I am still fairly young, thank you for asking) and there is a strong British representation, too with five of the seven composers h...
