Notes & Reviews:

Sonus Brass was formed in 1987 by five highly successful brass performers/teachers in order to share their own close friendship and their love of music and brass ensemble playing with audiences throughout the world. The members of Sonus Brass collectively have over one hundred and seventy-five years of college teaching and professional playing experience and have presented master classes or performed together, and as soloists or chamber musicians, andin many foreign countries.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The most riveting part of the album is A Rose Without a Thorn, Elgar Howarth's settings of six pieces by Henry VIII. I like the post-medieval and pre-renaissance flavors, constantly varying textures, and the mix of dances and contemplations. Sonus's readings of the dances are bold and quite lively, the slow pieces thoughtful and mysterious.
