Beautiful Savior: Songs of Praise and Adoration
Southern Territorial Band
Bandmaster Nicholas Simmons-Smith’s first recording with the Southern Territorial Band is a wonderful blending of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs in band arrangements that represent three generations of Salvationist composers. The repertoire ranges from band classics such as the late Commissioner Dean Goffin’s setting of the hymn tune “Aurelia”, The Light of the World, through James Curnow’s psalm-like Hallelujah, and moving through Eric Alexander’s “New Orleans street beat”, Lord, Lord, You Sure Been Good to Me.
This recording also features a series of devotions written by Captain Michael Harris based on each piece.
