Bandmaster Nicholas Simmons-Smith's first
CD with the Southern Territorial Band is a wonderful blending of
psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs in band arrangements that represent
three generations of Salvationist composers. The repertoire ranges from
band classics such as the late Commissioner Dean Goffin's setting of the
hymn tune "Aurelia," "The Light of the World," through James Curnow's
psalm like "Hallelujah," and moving through Eric Alexander's "New
Orleans Street Beat" "Lord, Lord, You've Sure Been Good to Me."
