This new recording with The Central Band of the Royal Air Force, conducted by Wing Commander Duncan Stubbs, features some of the greatest British pieces in the repertoire. The first military band to broadcast on BBC Radio, and the most frequently featured on the airwaves nowadays, it is at the forefront of military band and contemporary wind ensemble recording. A bit close in content to the British Musc for Concert Band album by he Central Band quite a few years ago. Tho the arrangements sound different. And the one whose recordings are released the most is the Central Band of the RAF. This collection includes classics mostly by British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams ('Folk Song Suite for Military Band') and Percy Grainger ('Lincolnshire Posy'), but also by the well-known Gustav Holst, whose 1st & 2nd Suites for Military Band are both included here.

This recording from the Central Band of the Royal Air Force, conducted by Wing Commander Duncan Stubbs, features some of the greatest British pieces in the repertoire by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Gustav Holst, Percy Aldridge Grainger, Ernest Tomlinson and Gordon Langford. The first military band broadcast on BBC Radio and the most frequently featured on the airwaves today, the Central Band of the RAF is at the forefront of military band and contemporary wind ensemble recording.

To be the Principal Director of Music and conductor on this new recording marks the culmination of an ambition and a significant high point in my Royal Air Force career. Duncan Stubbs joined the RAF in 1983 as a member of the Central Band and was commissioned as a Director of Music (DOM) in 1990, one of the youngest-ever commissioned DOMs in all three Services. He has served as DOM to all the RAF bands and completed two tours as staff officer in the Headquarters Music Services.
