  • MLB96 I'll Follow Thee (arr. Ian Feltwell) Listen

    July 26, 2021

    (Song Arrangement) The well-known words of Agnes Heathcote have recently been put to a new melody by Andrew Blyth which is published in Sing to the Lord (Volume 21 Part 1). This song serves as the basis for this arrangement with the original melody interwoven throughout. The words of the song speak of God’s call on our lives to follow Him. Sometimes it may be hard for us to honour that calling, but we know the joy and inner peace we can have if we dedicate and commit ourselves to following Him. It is hoped that the music will help the listener reflect on the strength and commitment of their own personal journey in following Christ. View PDF Link to Purchase
  • MLB95 Postlude on St. Peter (Nicholas Samuel) Listen

    June 28, 2021

    (Postlude) Written for the Canadian Staff Band’s online Remembrance Concert in 2020, the music is framed upon the four verses of John Oxenham’s hymn, In Christ There Is No East or West (S.A.S.B. 1006), which is most often associated with Alexander Reinagle’s well-known tune, St. Peter (T.B. 116). The music begins very plainly with the solo snare drum and solo melody line. With occasional references to The Last Post, it builds toward the full-sounding proclamation of the text, “All Christly souls are one in Him throughout the whole wide earth.” View PDF Link to Purchase
  • MLB94 Canadiana (David Rowsell) Listen

    May 31, 2021

    (March) This march features the chorus of the well-known song The Maple Leaf Forever as the basis for its theme. Many Salvation Army bands participate in civic events such as Canada Day celebrations and Remembrance Day ceremonies, and this would be a fitting piece for these occasions. There is a Salvation Army connection to the tune in that the following words (S.A.S.B. 941) can be sung to the melody: We’re marching on, we’re marching on, we’re marching on together; God bless our Army round the world, and keep us true forever.

  • MLB93 Be Thou My Vision (arr. Marcus Venables) Listen

    April 26, 2021

    (Song Arrangement) The beautiful Irish folk tune Slane (T.B. 831) has long been associated with the words Be Thou My Vision by Eleanor Hull. This arrangement attempts to translate into music the experience we are going through in being removed from our normal expressions of worship and music ministry. The piece begins with a motif that represents distance and aloneness. As we hear each verse of the melody presented, from a prayerful nature to a rejoicing plea, this motif continues to be present. The piece concludes in a similar style to the opening but offers a sense of encouragement through the lyrics, “O Ruler of all.” Although we may feel isolated and alone, God is with us and we continue to pray for His vision and guidance in our lives today.

  • MLB92 Glory (Olaf Ritman) Listen

    March 29, 2021

    (Swing Arrangement) Glory! was written for the big band elective at music camp in the Netherlands several years ago. The traditional big band rhythm section was used (piano, bass, and drums) alongside all the instruments within the brass band except for the basses. The horns, baritones and euphoniums represented the saxophone section. At the request of Howard Evans, bandmaster of the Amsterdam Staff Band at the time, the piece was rearranged to function without the need for the big band rhythm section. It has now been rescored and adjusted to make it widely available for a smaller group. The tune Glory to His Name (S.A.S.B. 76) is treated in such a way that should bring a smile to the face of the listener. The third verse speaks about the joy we experience once we have let Jesus into our lives. View PDF Link to Purchase
  • MLB91 All to Thee (Harrison Venables) Listen

    February 22, 2021

The listener is reminded that regardless of our circumstances, we need to surrender our all to Jesus and fully rely on Him. Whether we are going through good times or difficult times, we can trust that He is in control if we continue to surrender our lives for His glory. View PDF Link to Purchase
  • MLB90 When He Cometh (Jonathan Rowsell) Listen

    January 25, 2021

    (Song Setting) When He Cometh (S.A.S.B. 558), written by William O. Cushing, was originally published as part of a collection of Sunday School songs in 1870. The text is based on Malachi 3:16-17. While many might consider it to be a song for children, the text is still relevant today and applies to each one of us. We are all loved by Him and we are all His treasures. As believers, we look forward with anticipated hope to His return and the reward for our service in His name. View PDF Link to Purchase
  • MLB89 - His Providential Care (Kenneth Smith) Listen

    December 21, 2020

    (Song Setting) The song (S.A.S.B. 5) featured in this arrangement was specifically chosen to bring comfort and assurance to those impacted by the COVID-19 virus in 2020. In a time where many have missed coming together for corporate worship, or gathering in other ways, one verse speaks of being “lonely and sad, from friends apart,” an experience shared by so many during this difficult time. No matter the circumstances of life we must face, the songwriter assures us that God will be there to meet our every need. May this song remind listeners of that reality. View PDF Link to Purchase

  • MLB87 - Thy Will (Mike Brooks) Listen

    October 20, 2020

    (Meditation) Thy Will is a meditation that takes us on a spiritual journey – one of seeking, praying and submission. It begins with a seeking heart, expressed through the words of the chorus Silently Now I Wait for Thee (S.A.S.B. 786). This moves into a prayerful attitude that appeals to the Lord for the revelation of His will in our lives through the chorus O Speak (S.A.S.B. 762). We don’t always hear what we want or expect which often causes confusion and doubt. Only through complete submission, surrender and obedience can we follow the will of our Master (At Thy Feet I Bow Adoring S.A.S.B. 572). The piece closes with the simple reminder from the song Sweet Will of God: “Sweet Will of God, still fold me closer.” View PDF Link to Purchase

There are several quotes from the hymn I Know a Fount where the band states "there's a wonder-working power in the blood of Calvary."
