British Army Band Sandhurst

The Band

British Army Band Sandhurst was formed in 2019 from an amalgamation of the Band of the Royal Corps of Signals and the Band of the Royal Logistic Corps. It is the first band, since the disbandment of the Royal Military Academy Band in 1984, to be permanently based at The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

Primarily a Symphonic Wind Band, British Army Band Sandhurst also provides smaller ensemble capabilities, such as brass quintet, woodwind quintet, saxophone quartet, fanfare team and a function band. In September 2022 the band were also joined by four string players, increasing the capability of the band.

The Band supports a diverse range of national and British Defence Interests, both at home and around the world. Recently it performed for the 200th Sovereign’s Parade, on the steps of Old College at The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, in the presence of His Majesty King Charles III.

RCAM 30 Legacy Recordings

Shining Sword – Rob Wiffin OBE

Shining Sword, composed by Rob Wiffin is an extended fanfare written in tribute to recognise the heroism of the RAF Bomber Command in WWII.  It was selected because of its title also references the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst’s Sword of Honour, whilst showcasing British Army Band Sandhurst’s unique string capability.

Star Wars Saga – John Williams arr. De Meij 

This was initially adapted for wind band and strings for a concert at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, the result was so powerful that the piece was chosen for this recording.  Again, demonstrating the impact of wind band and strings at British Army Band Sandhurst.

English Dances, Set 2 – Sir Malcolm Arnold CBE

English Dances are two sets of light music, composed by Malcolm Arnold .  Each set consists of dances inspired by country folk tunes and dances. This was chosen as it is the lesser known and recorded of the two sets and it reflects the instrumental strengths of the band alongside its idyllic location in Surrey.
