For over 125 years Salvation Army bands have been playing in citadels, churches and on the street corners in countries around the world.
As an organization and a Christian church, The Salvation Army is active in 111 countries and its bands play a prominent role in the Army's meetings and modes of praise and worship.
Brass Bands of the Salvation Army takes a look at the beginnings, development and purpose of Army bands, from the first brass group formed by Charles William Fry at Salisbury, England in 1878, through to the near professional standards achieved by some bands today. But there are still hundreds of bands that perform with just a handful of dedicated players at their local town or village corps.
With the help of contributing authors from other countries, band historian Ronald W. Holz takes a look into the mission and music of Army bands and then asks, 'What does the future hold for the bands of today?'
