Summon The Heroes

Summon The Heroes

Welcome to this recording made by the Military Band of the Royal Marines School of Music and thank you for making a very valued contribution to the Help for Heroes Charity.
The Royal Marines School of Music is the professional headquarters of the Royal Marines Band Service and is responsible for all training - musical and military - of musicians and buglers for the Royal Navy. Whilst you can hear on this recording the high standards achieved at the School, probably less well-known is the military requirements placed on the Band Service by the Royal Navy. Throughout its long and varied history, musicians and buglers have always had a military role. Indeed, during the Second World War, one quarter of the musicians serving in the Naval Service lost their lives, whilst serving in the gunnery sections onboard HM Ships. More recently Bands have served in the Falklands, Iraq, Kosovo and a number are currently preparing to deploy to Afghanistan as part of 3 Commando Brigade, serving alongside their General Service counterparts in a variety of roles.
Therefore it only seemes fitting that a large proportion of the proceeds from the sale of this recording be donated to such a worthwhile charity, helping those who are currently giving so much in the service of their Country. At least £5.00 will be donated from your purchase, so on their behalf, thank you.
