William Alwyn was a consummate film composer, as capable of creating powerful marches as he was atmospheric waltzes. In these exciting arrangements by Martin Ellerby for wind band, the full variety of Alwyn’s inspiration can be appreciated. There is the romantic allure of the overture to The Crimson Pirate, the compact, brilliant characterisation of The History of Mr Polly and the suite from Geordie, with its seductive use of familiar Scottish melodies. The scores for The Way Ahead and Desert Victory convey action with superb and stirring
effectiveness.

"...this makes for an excellent introduction to lwyn’s music, skillfully played and recorded, at a reasonable price."

Mark Koldys - American Record Guide - July/August 2012


"...The Royal Northern College of Music Wind Orchestra are one of Britain’s finest wind groups and play these scores with verve and conviction. For film fans well worth exploring."

James Norris - Audiophilia.com - 8 May 2012


"...This is generally satisfying film music ... These arrangements are quite pleasing ..."
