I'm surprised no one else has offered a review of this CD of brass music, but as that's the case, I offer my assessment.

First of all, the performing group, the Empire Brass, is one of the most distinguished in the U.S., and the entire world. I have a good number of their recordings, and there is hardly one among them I'd rate less than excellent. The five players--2 trumpets, horn, trombone, and tuba--are, on the evidence of their recordings, first-rank artists who regularly combine forces synergistically to produce some of the finest brass music around: music which bears their unique imprint, a certain unmistakable style and sound which sets their performances apart. On this disk they augment their forces on 7 of the 20 tracks to include the very apt and stimulating touches of percussionist Richard Jensen.

The title of the disk no doubt comes from the fact that virtually all of the composers present have in some way served "royal" personages: kings, queens, princes, emperors, popes. The subtitle of the disk tells us what style of music is in store: "Music from the Renaissance & Baroque." (The great majority of the works are Baroque, but the few Renaissance pieces add much to the charm of the program.)

For readers who merely want a quick evaluation of the CD's merits, I offer the following critique. The Brass play here with pretty much all their usual finesse: only perhaps in a spot or two may there be the slightest departure from their accustomed grace, hardly worth mentioning. There are, however, a few tracks on which I feel the balance could be better: the bass (tuba) could receive somewhat more emphasis. (That would not be due to any deficiency in the playing, but to the engineering of the recording.

The first one of the anonymous fanfare is the base for the "Fanfare for Rocky" from the movie. Music composed by Bill Conti.
