by The Band 1st Battalion, The Glos Regiment
with special guest Johnny Coppin

An album of music and songs that evoke the Regiment's strong association with its county, and a rare combination of miltary band and a singer/songwriter. Released in 1990 and voted one of the best six albums of the year by Gramophone magazine. The music includes "Folk Song Suite" by Vaughan Williams, "The Intermezzo From 1st Suite in E flat" by Gustav Holst, and "Three English Dances" by Roger Quilter. The songs include the specially commissioned title song "The Glorious Glosters", "Contrasts" by Ivor Gurney, and new arrangements of Frank Mansell's "The Roads Go Down", F.W. Harvey's "Song of Gloucestershire" and "Warning", and Leonard Clark's "This Night The Stars".
