'Once A Marine .....'

'Once A Marine .....'

Probably one of the most experienced wind bands in Britain - arguably in the world - this album of fresh recordings presents the accumulation of over 1,500 years of combined military band expertise. The recordings are deliberately Royal Marine and emphasise many of the traditional, all-time favourites of concert goers and record collectors.
