"Going to the Army!" is a podcast series featuring Salvation Army music. This 30th Episode is for March 2017 and continues the "Going to the Army!" ministry, which is now in its 4th year of broadcasting.

This episode (the 35th podcast in total, including seasonal specials) features bands, songsters, massed ensembles, a singing company, rock band and soloists - all sharing with us music from the vast Salvation Army repertoire - inclusing some very rare pieces I doubt most listeners have heard before.

Composers featured include John Larsson, Martyn Thomas, Thomas Rive, Norman Bearcroft, Ray Steadman-Allen, Douglas Rolls and Brian Hogg. This new episode in the Podcast series is the successor last month's podcast and features songs and pieces with a connection to WATER - seas, oceans, rivers, tides, floods and founts.

Originally begun for just a few friends and family members GttA has become SO MUCH MORE than that in just 3 years. The Episodes and 'specials' have been listened to or downloaded HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of times in all continents and more than 50 countries throughout the world - and has been played to even more by listeners who share them with family, church shut-ins and other friends who do not have access to the internet. This new podcast continues the ever-growing ministry of GttA around the world and features both new songs and pieces and others that have been well-loved and very well-blessed for many years throughout the Salvation Army World. I am particularly grateful to people who send me requests for items they would like featured on GttA.

We have had to upgrade from the FREE Podomatic service three times now so many thanks to those who have donated enabling us to be able to do that. In the months ahead we may run out of space on the Podomatic host site and, if we do then the early episodes will need to be deleted. The only option to this would be to upgrade the subscription package still further. Any donations to this ministry are gratefully received and my be sent via PayPal through the link on the right hand side of the podcast's main page at: www.goingtothearmy.podomatic.com The "Going to the Army" Facebook group recently passed 4,100 members from all around the world. "They shall come from the East, They shall come from the West and sit down in the Kingdom of God". Hallelujah!

Much of the featured music is from my own transfers of old SA LPs, 78s and cassettes but some CD and original recordings are also included. Presented by lifelong Salvationist musician and actor Marc Harry this podcast features music by bands, songsters, singing companies and soloists. In addition, background information about the music, the Salvation Army and the presenter's own experiences are included.

"Going to the Army!" is a podcast series featuring Salvation Army music. This 27th Episode is for September 2016 and marks the return of the "Going to the Army!" ministry after a Summer Break. 

This episode pays tribute to one of the greatest names in Salvation Army history - BM George Marshall (OF) - a man whose music - and even more so when placed intot the context of his own life story - is inspirational and awe-inspiring. His story is told throughout the podcast episode and we hear more than TWENTY of his songs and pieces, including four recordings that have never been heard before, three of which have been made specially for this podcast.

The episode features Salvation Army bands, singers and soloists from around the world including:

The International Staff Band and Songsters (including a rare live recording from 1957), Chalk Farm Band, Tranas Band, THe Household Troops Band, Tottenham Citadel Band and the Canadian Staff Band, soloists Peter Wise and Lawrence Mallyon, Portsmouth Citadel, Brisbane City Temple, Birmingham Citadel and Upper Norwood Songsters and special guests The Black Dyke Band to end with!

The three new recordings I have made are of songs composed very early in the life of the composer, including his first published composition from January 1912 and the song BM Marhsall wrote to words penned by his fiancee (at the time, later his wife and lifelong carer) Jenny Berry.
Biographical details included in this episode are drawn from various sources but special mention must be made of the book 'Triumph of Faith' by Arch Wiggins. 


Originally begun for just a few friends and family members GttA has become SO MUCH MORE than that in just 32 months. The Episodes and 'specials' have been listened to or downloaded HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of times in all continents and more than 50 countries throughout the world - and has been played to even more by listeners who share them with family, church shut-ins and other friends who do not have access to the internet.

This episode features Salvation Army bands, singers and soloists from around the world - with a special feature on a good friend of mine, Dr Clarence Adoo MBE - a Salvationist musician whose professional career as a trumpet player in leading orcheatras was tragicaly cut short by a terrible car accident that left him paralysed from the neck down.

"Going to the Army!" is a podcast series featuring Salvation Army music. This 25th Episode is for March 2016 and continues the return of the "Going to the Army!" ministry, now in its 3rd season. I sincerely hope that from now on the series will once again be a monthly podcast, as I know many listsners have missed it.

This episode celebrates all things 'Salvation Army' with a celebration of our identity as an organisation AT WAR with sin and evil - a BLOOD AND FIRE Army unashamed of the truths we are so needed to share with the world. Musicians and composers featured this month include several Robert Redhead, Eric Ball, Norman Bearcroft, Erik Leidzen, several Staff Bands and songster brigades, Ove Ericson, Bill and Bruce Broughton and Salvationist musicians from all around the world

The Spirit of Christmas

We start our 2015 Christmas playlist with Kenneth Cook’s 1954 March Medley. This has been a seasonal favourite amongst Salvation Army bands for as long as I can remember – and more! Featuring ‘Good Christian Men Rejoice’, ‘The Holly and the Ivy’ and ‘See Amid the Winter’s Snow’ it will set our feet tapping! It is played here by the Nottingham Memorial Halls Band.

Sing A Song of Christmas

If our feet are already tapping then Len Ballantine’s song will get our hands clapping as well! This song has been a popular addition to the Christmas repertoire both in the SA and beyond. We featured it with our own songster brigade this year at Lincoln Citadel but this is from the International Staff Songsters album ‘Sing Noel’

Stars are Shining

Back to 1941 now and a beautiful collaboration between Catherine Baird and Charles Skinner – 2 very well-known and fondly remembered names in SA music. This carol has retained its popularity and this lovely recording is by the Sunbury Junior Singers under Joy Webb’s leadership.

Rhapsody for Cornet and Band

A real ‘one man’ effort here – for this is Terry Camsey’s classic cornet solo based on the carol ‘A Christmas Lullaby – by Terry Camsey – and played by the composer himself with the International Staff Band at a festival during the 1978 International Congress. Terry is another much-loved and much-missed Salvationist musician having been Promoted to Glory shortly after attending ISB 120 a couple of years or so ago.

Grown Up Christmas List

Although not currently an active Salvationist Darren Bartlett is a well-known name to most of us. He has composed many songs that are well-used around the Army world including ‘In The Army’ and ‘Healing Christ’ and he is the leader of Salvacosta, a choir made up of mostly either current or past members of the SA and who reached the final of the BBC Choir of the Year competition in 2014.  Darren and I were born just a few days apart and we have attended music schools and worked together now for over 40 years. This lovely song is from a CD he made with the North York Temple Band a few years ago.

Sleep, Holy Child

Another well-known SA soloist is Sue Blyth and this beautiful song is taken from a CD Sue recorded some years ago now. Sue is currently SL at Peterborough Corps.

Cool Yule

Another good friend of mine, Martyn Thomas, has recently returned to SA service after a gap of many years, praise God! He has composed many songs band pieces in rock and swing styles, of which this is one. Martyn is from a line of accomplished SA musicians – his late father, Stan, was BM at Southsea Corps and leader of The Joybelles singing group which Martyn’s grandfather held the same position and wrote the march Southsea Citadel. Cool Yule is based on ‘Good King Wenceslas’

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

Here are Salvacosta with an up-beat arrangement of the popular carol in a Latin-American style. I recently heard the group sing this live in a sell-out concert in Branksome where they have helped raise over £35,000 for a local charity over the last 10 years.

Long, Long Ago

Another carol that has achieved popularity far beyond the limits of The Salvation Army itself is this one, Long Long Ago, by Ray Steadman-Allen – and this version is from a now seldom-remembered LP that Cambridge Heath Band recorded with popular singing due Chas and Dave in 1986.

O Heaven-Sent King

For centuries now aspiring composers have studied the harmonisations of the great composer Johann Sebastien Bach and few of the master’s chorales can match the sheer beauty of his setting of this old German melody. The words in this arrangement are by Miriam Richards but church choirs will still be more familiar with ‘O Little One Sweet, O Little One Mild’ that uses the same tune. This recording is by The Central Singers – a male voice group who came from Derby Central Corps.

The New-Born Babe

Bruce Broughton’s chorale-type setting is one of those wonderful arrangements that, when heard, one always asks why it is not played more often!  Maybe the fact it was published in the old Festival Series meant that many bands have never had this in their collections – but, surely, in this digital age, SP&S could do something about that?  This recording is from the ISB’s ‘Christmas Festival in Brass’ LP from 1974.

The Holly and the Ivy

For many of us, the International Staff Songsters have never been as fresh and exciting as during their formative years under Norman Bearcroft and this arrangement is typical of their music from that period. This is from their LP Season’s Greetings. Please remember Norman in your prayers as he is recovering from a serious fall just short of his 90th birthday.

We Three Kings

Here we have a truly Eastern setting of the familiar carol as recorded by The Joystrings.

Soon It Will Be Christmas (Ieuan’s Song)

Although I have written a new song for Christmas almost every year for the last 30 years few have managed to match the popularity of ‘My Christmas Wish’ – a song that became the title track of my first solo CD and which I still have several requests to perform every year. A couple of years ago I sat down and tried to compose a ‘sequel’ to that song, which focussed on all the ‘trimmings’ of the season with the hope that people would let Jesus back into His own celebration.  As I sat, trying to write, my youngest son Ieuan – who was just 8 at the time – kept coming up with suggestions for ‘next lines’, pertinent rhymes etc. – so I gave him a co-writing credit and put his name in the title.  This recording is just a rough demo I made until I have the opportunity to record a 2nd Christmas CD (provisionally planned for 2018).

No Room

Barbara Allen is another talented SA musician I have had the privilege of knowing for many years – going back to her days in Blackpool with the group ‘Close Encounters of the Real Kind’ but, for a long time now, Barbara has been settled in California where she has done much great work with Salvation Army vocal groups. This song is taken from her CD ‘Through It All’ and I pray we all have room for Jesus in our own hearts this Christmas and always!

Carol Of The Bells

Norman Bearcroft was writing great music long for SA singers long before he formed the ISS in 1979/1980, of course. This perennial favourite, with words by Ivy Mawby, dates from way back in 1965.

It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

The name William Broughton appears at the top of many SA band arrangements and, of course, Bill is an extremely well-known and accomplished trombone player. This solo arrangement of the tune we know as ‘Willis’ is in his familiar jazzy style and comes from his Christmas Collection ‘Let it Snow’. Bill is now living in Australia and recently conducted the wedding of another famous SA musician Barrie Gott.

Go, Tell it on the Mountain

More trombones – and, indeed, more Bill Broughton, now – but this time as part of the ensemble known as ‘Spiritual to the Bone’ taking the message of Christmas and telling it on the mountain – over the hills and everywhere!

Take the Light of Jesus to the World

On the same day I wrote ‘Soon it will be Christmas’ that we heard earlier I was asked to write a carol for Southampton Shirley Singing Company for them to perform in the annual corps carol service which, that year, had the theme ‘Christmas Around the World’ – so I wrote them this simple song with the chorus:
“From Sweden to Surinam, from Poland to Pakistan, The light that shone in the sky that night still shines within my heart. And everywhere in the world tonight we can share the joy of that Christmas night – And take the light of Jesus to the world.”

You’re Welcome

The Joystrings again – and a song to welcome the Saviour to His world. Until I first remastered their back catalogue some years ago at the request of Peter Dalziel for a group reunion I had not really appreciated that almost half the group’s total musical output was made up of Christmas music.

Christmas Praise

From 1984 this is a newer march than our opener but one that has become as popular as any other seasonal march in recent years. Composed by Australian Salvationist Noel Jones Christmas Praise contains ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’, ‘Hark the Herald’, ‘Normandy Carol’ and ‘The Manger Scene (Away in a Manger)’ – as well as a late nod to ‘O Come all Ye Faithful’.  Played for us here by the Regent Hall Band.

To conclude the playlist I leave you with the Amsterdam Staff Songsters and the beautiful ‘A Christmas Blessing’

A Christmas Blessing

Wishing all listeners a truly blessed Christmas 2015 and an inspiring new year! May we all work together for the extension of God’s Kingdom in the year ahead.
God bless you all!

"Going to the Army!" is a podcast series featuring Salvation Army music. This 23rd monthly Episode is for Advent 2015 and continues the return of the "Going to the Army!" ministry - now in its 3rd season.

This episode is a special - the theme, especially towards the end of the podcast, is to ADVENT. It features music by Staff Bands and the International Staff Songsters, soloists, Junior Singers, corps bands and brigades, massed items from the Royal Albert Hall and much more...but all pieces this month feature music composed and lyrics written by Major Joy Webb (OF).

Joy Webb is, perhaps, still most famous as being a member of the 1960s pop group The Joystrings, a group of young Salvation Army officers (ministers) whose records hit the pop charts! Joy has written hundreds of songs, many of which are now an established part of the SA's repertoire and several of her tunes are also well known outside of SA circles (her Christmas Carol 'A Starry Night' is one of the most popular 10 carols in the UK according to a recent survey).

Now retired and spending most of her time away from the public eye I am pleased to offer this GttA tribute to a 'living legend'! So often we wait until someone has 'gone to Glory' before thanking them enough for what they have done...but, as my dear dad used to say, "GIVE THEM THE FLOWERS NOW!" So, Major Joy, accept this heartfelt tribute for all you have given us over many years!

EDIT - 11th Dec - I have been made aware that 'The Musician's Prayer' as featured in this episode is NOT a Joy Webb composition but by Len Ballantine. Thankfully (ahem!) there is still a Joy Webb link to that item as she is conducting the massed singing companies (which led to my confusion). Thank you to Mr D Charles for pointing out this error.

Originally begun for just a few friends and family members GttA has become SO MUCH MORE than that in just 27 months. The Episodes and 'specials' have been listened to or downloaded HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of times in all continents and more than 50 countries throughout the world - and has been played to even more by listeners who share them with family, church shut-ins and other friends who do not have access to the internet.

This new podcast continues the ever-growing ministry of GttA around the world and features both new songs and pieces and others that have been well-loved and very well-blessed for many years throughout the Salvation Army World. I am particularly grateful to people who send me requests for items they would like featured on GttA.

We have had to upgrade from the FREE Podomatic service three times now so many thanks to those who have donated enabling us to be able to do that. In the months ahead we may run out of space on the Podomatic host site and, if we do then the early episodes will need to be deleted.

There has been a break in the series since April 2015 as I have moved house and seen many other changes in my life during that extremely busy period.

This episode celebrated the God-incidence, the way things just seem to come together for the good of the Kingdom so often when one relies on the Lord to lead! It features music by four Staff Bands and the International Staff Songsters, soloists, Junior Singers, corps bands and brigades, massed items from the Royal Albert Hall and more...

Going to the Army!" is a podcast series featuring Salvation Army music. This 21st monthly Episode is for April 2015 hase 

just a few friends and family members GttA has become SO MUCH MORE than that in just 27 months. The Episodes and 'specials' have been listened to or downloaded HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of times in all continents and more than 50 countries throughout the world - and has been played to even more by listeners who share them with family, church shut-ins and other friends who do not have access to the internet. 

This new podcast continues the ever-growing ministry of GttA around the world and features both new songs and pieces and others that have been well-loved and very well-blessed for many years throughout the Salvation Army World. I am particularly grateful to people who send me requests for items they would like featured on GttA.

We have had to upgrade from the FREE Podomatic service three times now so many thanks to those who have donated enabling us to be able to do that.  In the months ahead we may run out of space on the Podomatic host site and, if we do then the early episodes will need to be deleted. The only option to this would be to upgrade the subscription package still further. Any donations to this ministry are gratefully received and my be sent via PayPal through the link on the right hand side of the podcast's main page at: www.goingtothearmy.podomatic.com

The "Going to the Army" Facebook group recently passed 4,100 members from all around the world.

"They shall come from the East, They shall come from the West and sit down in the Kingdom of God". Hallelujah!

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
