Fully Scored

Fully Scored | Ep. 40 (Carl Saunders & Jonathan Evans)

Season 4, Ep. 40

‘The light of the world’ is, without doubt, one The Salvation Army’s most played and loved pieces of music. In this episode, Dean Goffin’s masterpiece is analysed by Bandmaster Jonathan Evans (Sale and ISB). Before this, Matthew Frost interviews cornet superstar and Bandmaster of the Household Troops Band, Carl Saunders. 


Before Carl’s band knowledge is put to the test in Bandmastermind, we have a special Arid Island Album feature with three members of staff from the Territorial Youth Band course. 


‘Band Manager’ and ‘Sparsely Scored’ complete another jam-packed episode.
