Derick thrilled audiences with "The Better World" (Bearcroft), "Travelling Along" (Mallett), "In Christ Alone" (Phillips), and his own composition: "That's the spirit" written for his son, Stephen.
Derick was kind enough to play with the band on all our engagements and conduct the band in "The Proclaimers" (Norbury), "Celebration" (Condon), "The Ambassadors" (Graham), and rehearse "Daystar" (Steadman-Allen).
Derick also took the time to judge the Southern Territorial Singing Company competition, lead rehearsals with Florida youth band and the Territorial Songsters.
We thank Derick for a great weekend.
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."
