This work was written for the 125th anniversary of Boscombe Band, celebrated in November 2011, and is the title track of the band’s album released in that year. The music is celebratory in nature and is dedicated to all those who have served in the band during its 125-year history. The theme of the work is a song by Charles Hutchinson Gabriel which was the favorite of the band’s librarian, Gerald Whittingham, who was promoted to Glory after a long battle with a brain tumor. The title comes from the last verse, “When with the ransomed in glory, His face I at last shall see, ’twill be my joy through the ages, to sing of His love for me”.
