Like most brass recordings, Ancient Airs for Brass & Organ contains no works originally done for modern brass instruments. What is unusual about this collection is that none of these works (except the Bach) were written for ANY specific instrument.

The selections convey prominently a spirit of joy and celebration; repertoire from previous centuries that inspires and pleases.
