Partons' Choice V

Foden's Band
Conducted by Michael Fowles

Patrons Choice V is dedicated to Granville Jennings who joined the band on Soprano Cornet in 1963, helping them to win the 1964 British Open Brass Band Championship under the legendary conductor, Rex Mortimer. Staying with Fodens until 1974, he moved to Royal Doulton Band, under the baton of Ted Gray (former principal cornet with Fodens) and was then enticed by a conducting position of his own at Berisford Band where he remained from 1978 until 1990. Granville then returned to his first love, Fodens Band, where he has worked alongside his friend, Jimmie Charles, with the music library ever since. Patrons Choice V continues in similar style to the first four volumes, i.e. repertoire of an easy-listening nature and featuring the band s stunning array of soloists.
