Brass

Brass Band music played on this station is in the British style of brass banding.

A British brass band is a musical ensemble comprising a standardised range of brass and percussion instruments. The modern form of the brass band in the United Kingdom dates back to the 19th century, with a vibrant tradition of competition based around communities and local industry, with colliery bands being particularly notable.

Bands using the British instrumentation are the most common form of brass band in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand, and are also widespread in continental Europe, Japan and North America.
The tradition of the brass band is espicially noticable in the music of the Salvation Army who beside modern praise bands almost exclusively uses brass bands for the accompaniment and congregational music.

British Brass Bands are limited to specific instruments, excluding, for instance trumpets or French horns, which are found in orchestras and concert bands.

The standard instrumentation is as follows:[2]

Salvation Army Band
In the UK, Salvation Army brass bands have run parallel to the main brass band movement since the 1870s. Salvation Army Bands range from small church bands to staff bands composed of the best Salvation Army bandsmen in the area. Their instrumentation is almost identical except for a minor difference in the cornet section whereby the repiano is dropped and the remainder of the row is made up of parts designated 1st and 2nd (two players each) rather than 2nd and 3rd; and that some major pieces have a split first trombone part, the lower part usually cued elsewhere in the band. Salvation Army Bands can be found in most countries around the world in which it operates.
