Netherlands - Day 2

Posted by Martin Cordner on Friday, January 25, 2013, In : events & engagements 

Day 2 started with breakfast at Eric & Femmy's house in Zeist.  We then had some time including lunch with Olaf Ritman and his wife Marleen in Ede.  In case you don't know, Olaf is the bandmaster of the Amsterdam Staff Band of the Salvation Army. Along with Marleen and their two children they worship at the Ede corps. Zeer aardige mensen.

With Olaf

Marleen and Leanne

After that we headed to Almere corps where we attended a worship meeting to mark the retirement of two of the Territory's leade...

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. 

Visiting a local ea...

'Fusion' world premiere

Posted by Martin Cordner on Saturday, July 30, 2011, In : performances 
Just got news that Fusion was performed tonight (Sat 30 July 2011) by the A-band (Dr Stephen Cobb) at the UK's TMS (Territorial Music School) final festival.  I had submitted it to Steve for the ISB to look at some weeks ago but had not heard back regarding its suitability.  So this news is a pleasant, albeit unexpected surprise.  The life of a composer, eh?    

It's music camp season and I guess this is the time of year when composers are popular because bands like to play new music!  With Ba...

Catching up

Posted by Martin Cordner on Sunday, July 24, 2011, In : performances 
That's us home from a fantastic USA trip that took us to Manhattan, the Salvation Army's Camp Ladore near Waymart PA, Alexandria VA, Washington DC and the Army's Star Lake Camp near Bloomingdale NJ.

I'm just posting this to let you know I will be uploading Ladore Band's rendition of 'Escape Velocity' within the next few hours - probably to YouTube where it will be available to view for a few days.  I know some of you will be interested to hear this, not least Olaf and the ASB guys, plus the La...

New work heads to the ASB

Posted by Martin Cordner on Monday, April 11, 2011, In : new music 
I can't believe it...12 months after the request came in, I've finally managed to finish this work for the Amsterdam Staff Band!  It's called Escape Velocity and features the Hillsongs anthem 'His eye is on the Sparrow (I will run to you)' ...

And I will run to You,
To Your words of truth;
Not by might, not by power
But by the Spirit of God.
Yes, I will run the race,
Till I see Your face.
Oh, let me live in the glory of Your grace. well as a reference to the old song 'Saved by Grace' - verse th...
