Royal Artillery Band

The Royal Artillery Band had their “drum and fife” as long ago as 1557, but it was the need for a “band of musik” in the regiment that led to the formation of the Royal Artillery Band in 1762. Since 1764, the band has been quartered with the Royal Artillery regiment in Woolwich, SE London. Today’s band employs over fifty musicians who, in keeping with tradition, must be accomplished on both orchestral and wind band instruments. The band may appear on one day as a symphonic wind band (one of the largest in the British army), the next as a marching unit, and at another time as a full symphony orchestra (England’s oldest established symphony orchestra). Their conductor and Director of Music at the time of these recordings was Lt Col Malcolm Torrent.
