  1. Music to Inspire your Patriotic Spirt 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2015

    This is without a doubt the most inspired music by the Canadian Brass I have listened to. A must for my Independence Day celebration!


  2. Happy birthday, America, from Canada 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jul 2015

    Great CD. Great variety. Loved the last one: O Canada!


  3. Canadian Brass Capture Essence of American Composers 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th May 2015

    On this disk, the CB have captured the essence of American patriotic composers such as George M. Cohan and John Philip Sousa et al. Very tight and concise. It's always a joy to hear this music played properly with the correct dynamics. You continue to be my favorite musical group. Bravo!


  4. The Canadian Brass play with panache such south-of-the-border patriotic tunes as “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “My Country ’Tis of Thee.” 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2011

    Wow, who knew the Canadians felt this way about us? Here are 16 over-the-top tracks, featuring replica drums from the Colonial and Civil War eras, all toasting America. The drums were custom-made in Vermont, and you hear them to best advantage in “Drums of Liberty,” a salute to the drummers on the battlefield over the centuries. (Our own Father Baker was one, as a teenager, at Gettysburg.) The notes have all kinds of trivia. Who knew that an early advocate for “The Star-Spangled Banner” as our national anthem was Buffalo Bill, who played it at all his Wild West shows? Or that the jaunty, likable “Dixie” was originally an anti-slavery song by a Northerner? The themes all get impressive, imaginative treatment with their dashing fanfares and imaginative touches. The flat-footed “My Country, ’Tis of Thee” gets a burst of panache from a few bars of Aaron Copland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man.”Hmm. All this is making me uneasy. They must want something from us.
