Hosts of Freedom

Hosts of Freedom

This CD contains a refreshingly original programme of music played with considerable style, skill and panache as well as a little humour. Capt Mick Dowrick is to be congratulated not least because he has deservedly attracted the plaudits of distinguished conductor Tim Reynish who wrote amongst several compliments: "Mick brings to band and ensemble music an intelligence, elegance and restraint that for me result in refreshingly unhackneyed performances. I would recommend this disc without reservation; you should buy it as an example of wide-ranging repertoired for military, community or school bnad, played with dynamic control, tasteful phrasing and invariably excellent balance."
