At the 2012 Ceremony of Beating Retreat on Horse Guards Parade in the presence of Their Royal Highnesses The Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Massed Corps of Drums - comprising: First Battalion Coldstream Guards, First Battalion Irish Guards, and the Second Battalion The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment - were joined by the Massed Foot Guards Bands for a performance of, "The Great Escape". Elmer Bernstein's well known and highly popular theme music was conducted and adapted by Lieutenant Colonel Stephen Barnwell (Senior Director of Music Household Division and Director of Music Band of the Welsh Guards). It is interesting to note how far the so called modern "High Pitched" Flutes have to pull out in order to be able to be accompanied by the bands. These are 3-piece flutes. The very latest 2-piece flutes cannot be tuned to these extremes, unlike their predecessors, the original 2-piece "low pitched" instruments, which required very little adjustment to play at 440, or 442 pitch. The introduction of a Concert Pitch chanter has solved this particular problem for the Bagpipes.

In the immediate years following the Battle of Vittoria (1813) and the Battle of Waterloo (1815), Her Royal Highness, The Princess Charlotte of Wales, wrote a grand slow march and dedicated it to the Nation's hero, Lord Wellington, who later became the Duke of Wellington. The band arrangement (2013) is by Lieutenant Colonel Stephen Barnwell (former Director of Music of the Band of the Welsh Guards and Senior Director of Music, Household Division). The band arrangement was crafted from a copy of the original hand written piano score obtained by His Royal Highness, Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales, Colonel of the Welsh Guards. The music is played here by the Band of the Welsh Guards (March 2015) and is conducted by their Director of Music and the Senior Director of Music, Household Division, Lieutenant Colonel Kevin Roberts. The music, Lord Wellington's March, will feature on the Queen's Birthday Parade in June 2015 when the honour of Trooping the Colour will go to the Welsh Guards in the Regiment's centennial year. 2015 is also the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.

"The March Past" during the National Act of Remembrance at the Cenotaph (London) included the March Titles: "World War One Melodies" and "Songs of The Great War" compiled and arranged by Lieutenant Colonel Stephen Barnwell, Senior Director of Music of The Household Division. Brief synopsis of "World War One Melodies": The Introduction uses a quote from the Bugle Call "Fall In". The first melody used is "It's A Long Way To Tipperary". This is stated in full before "Pack Up Your Troubles In Your Old Kit Bag" is brought in as a counter-melody. After a powerful Bass interlude, both melodies are restated simultaneously before a key change marks the start the Trio. The quieter Trio uses the melody "Keep The Home Fires Burning" and at its halfway point introduces a second melody, "It's A Long, Long Trail A Winding" as a counter-melody. A short bridge passage, which makes a second reference to "Fall In", heralds the final grandiose and simultaneous statement of both Trio melodies once more before the march concludes with a fitting augmented final flourish statement. Short synopsis - "Songs of The Great War": After a short introduction the march makes use of the song, "Oh, Oh, Oh It's A Lovely War" before crashing into a bold statement of the song, "Mademoiselle from Armentieres" in a new key. A short bridge passage brings the march back into its original key for a reprise of " Oh, Oh, Oh It's A Lovely War" before the Trio and a second change of key to introduce the jaunty song, "Take me back to dear Old Blighty". A powerful bridge passage heralds a grandiose statement of "Take me back to dear Old Blighty" before the march concludes with a fitting coda.

John Cacavas - who scored hundreds of television episodes, television films and feature films - died on 28th January 2014 at his home in Beverly Hills, California. He was 83 years old. John Cacavas was a noted composer, arranger and conductor of orchestral music. Kojak, Hawaii Five-O, Matlock and Quincy are amongst the TV shows for which he wrote music. It is interesting to note that in his earlier years John Cacavas spent some time in the Military having joined the US Army after completing college. He was chosen to be chief arranger for the United States Army Band and it is true to say that Military Musicians the world over are familiar with his arrangements and compositions. On the 29th January 2014, the Qatar Army String Orchestra (who were in Central London at the time on a 3-month Course being run by SIS-7 in partnership with Qatar's National Academy of Professional Training) performed "Andante for Strings" by John Cacavas to a small audience who were enjoying "Afternoon Tea with the Orchestra" at the Victory Services Club near Marble Arch. The Course Director, Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Stephen Barnwell, had chosen the piece of music for the orchestra to study in order for the musicians from the Qatar Army to learn to play with increased warmth of sound by using vibrato, higher playing positions, and the full length of bow. Having learned of John Cacavas's death only the previous day, the orchestra respectfully dedicated their performance to his memory. At the end of the 3-month course, the orchestra (assisted by their instructors and conducted by Colonel Barnwell) elected to make a special "in-house" recording of the "Andante for Strings" in memory of John Cacavas -- a fellow Military Musician. Here is that recording.

The Band of the Irish Guards opened their practise room doors to host musicians from the Qatar Army on Friday 03 October at Wellington Barracks, Central London. The visiting musicians were on a 1-month SIS-7 music course being run by the House Division's former Senior Director of Music, Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Stephen Barnwell CAMUS. The course was sponsored by Qatar's National Academy of Training and it proved to be an excellent day of training in a wonderful display of Defence Diplomacy. The accompanying Qatari Officer, Captain Saad Al-Kawari, thanked Lieutenant Colonel Wayne Hopla (Senior Director of Music Household Division) and the members of the Irish Guards Band for providing the Qatari musicians with such a valuable training opportunity and for being such excellent hosts. Here the 2 Bands play "Michael Jackson Hit Mix" (Billie Jean, Beat It, Bad, Thriller) arranged by Johnnie Vinson.

Friday, 27th March 2015, was Lieutenant Colonel Kevin Roberts’ first day in office as the Senior Director of Music, Household Division. He remains of course, the Director of Music of the Band of the Welsh Guards and this additional appointment comes on promotion in to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Here the Band of the Welsh Guards is quite literally sight-reading, proofing a brand new arrangement of the Fourth Movement (Allegro) of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. This version, in the original key of C Major, contains a couple of “very tricky” bars for the Bass Section, which the players are about to discover live. If this is what can be achieved by the band playing completely unprepared and at sight then we can all look forward to hearing a truly magnificent polished performance. Well done to the band and congratulations to Colonel Roberts.

The Beating Retreat of 2013 - "A Military Music Spectacular" on Horse Guards Parade - was performed in the presence of Her Majesty, The Queen. It featured as always, a Marching Display by the Massed Bands of the Foot Guards. The display begins very softly with the fanfare, "Sunrise" from Also Sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss, which is conducted by the Senior Director of Music Household Division, Lieutenant Colonel Stephen Barnwell. It continues in the same vein with an arrangement by the Senior Director of Music of Tchaikovsky's, "Marche Slave". The music and that first haunting melody can barely be heard at first above the sound of the musicians' boots crunching forwards in slow time on the gravel of Horse Guards Parade, but just like in the fanfare, it crescendos incessantly to a powerful, intimidating and majestic sound. The first Quick March is homegrown - it was written by a Serving Director of Music, Major Simon Haw. "Flying Colours" is the perfect sequel to Marche Slave in this carefully crafted marching display, which requires the flanking bands of the Grenadier Guards and Coldstream Guards to break out in quick time and circle the remaining 3 bands in opposite directions. The final Quick March is Kenneth Alford's "Army of the Nile". It was chosen because of its key and character, which provides a feeling of musical balance and symmetry when set against Marche Slave at opposite ends of the programme of music for this display. Then, just when it looks like it has all the finished, the bands provide on more surprise and flourish. They split in half in dying moments of the march, turn to face each other and play antiphonally in a direct challenge for ultimate supremacy, before finally joining forces once more just in time to finish as one.

Thine In Glory (an "Echo" fanfare) and Marche Militaire "La Ronde" (Gounod) is performed by the Household Cavalry Trumpeters (2 separate and opposing teams from the Life Guards and Blues and Royals) and the Band of The Household Division comprising musicians drawn from the Bands of The Life Guards, Blues and Royals, Grenadier Guards, Coldstream Guards, Scots Guards, Irish Guards, and Welsh Guards. This performance was given at the Scarlet and Gold Concert in Westminster Central Hall, London, in November 2012. The music is conducted by Major Paul Wilman (Director of Music of The Band of The Life Guards). Points of interest: Echo Fanfares are used in the British State Ceremonial Arena during State Visits for State Banquets hosted by the Lord Mayor of London at the Guildhall.They are used to herald speeches and various other ceremonies that are carried out and are unique to those occasions. It is also interesting to note the 2 differing styles that the Household Cavalry Trumpeters adopt when playing their instruments. The Life Guards Trumpeters place their mouth pieces under the chin strap whilst the Blues and Royals place theirs over the top.

QATAR PREPARES FOR 2022 WORLD CUP IN CENTRAL LONDON. As all eyes turn towards Brazil for the forthcoming World Cup, the Qatar Army is sending its bands to London to prepare for the 2022 World Cup in Doha. The Guards Bands that perform everyday in Central London for the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace are the envy of the World when it comes to Pomp and Ceremony. With the help of a government approved company called SIS-7 and Qatar's National Academy of Professional Training, Qatar's Army Bands and String Orchestra have been receiving the best possible training here in Central London in readiness for the World Cup in 2022. In an excellent show of Defence Diplomacy, Wellington Barracks (the home of the Guards Bands) has opened its doors to lend a helping hand to recently retired Lieutenant Colonel Stephen Barnwell (former Senior Director of Music for the Household Division) and an SIS-7 team of ex-Military Musicians all drawn from the Guards and Royal Marines Bands. From their training base in Mayfair, home of 7 Rifles, Colonel Barnwell said, "the British Army has been absolutely tremendous and so generous with their help". The Corps of Army Music loaned musical instruments to the Qatar Army String Orchestra and the Household Division permitted its prestigious Guards Bands to host the musicians from Qatar in some highly beneficial joint rehearsals. "It's another 8 years before these boys step out onto the pitch to play the anthems for that opening game, but this kind of unique experience will stand them in good stead". SIS-7 is currently working with the Senior Band from the Qatar Army on a "train the trainer" mission. Members of this band are unlikely to be amongst those who march out on to the pitch for that opening game, but they will have an important role to play during the build up. The accompanying Officer for Qatar's Senior Army Band, Colonel Ahmed Hassa M Khenji, asked if he could reciprocate in some way for all the help his musicians have received from the British Military. They visited the Royal Hospital Chelsea on 28 May to perform a short open-air concert for the In-Pensioners (see the accompanying video) during which SIS-7 gave financial support to the Chelsea Pensioner's Appeal as a token of their appreciation. SIS-7 Chairman, Gordon Mitchell said, "it's was the least we could do."

The Band of the Irish Guards opened their practise room doors to host musicians from the Qatar Army on Friday 03 October at Wellington Barracks, Central London. The visiting musicians were on a 1-month SIS-7 music course being run by the House Division's former Senior Director of Music, Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Stephen Barnwell CAMUS. The course was sponsored by Qatar's National Academy of Training and it proved to be an excellent day of training in a wonderful display of Defence Diplomacy. The accompanying Qatari Officer, Captain Saad Al-Kawari, thanked Lieutenant Colonel Wayne Hopla (Senior Director of Music Household Division) and the members of the Irish Guards Band for providing the Qatari musicians with such a valuable training opportunity and for being such excellent hosts. Here the 2 Bands play "The Lord of the Dance" by Ronan Hardiman arranged by Johnnie Vinson. The conductor is Lance Corporal Mason, a Trumpet Player and Non-Commissioned Officer in the Irish Guards Band who is currently preparing for the Corps of Army Music Bandmaster Course Selection.
