Arnold Padstow Lifeboat

This recording is from our concert at St. Stephen's Church, Tonbridge, in 2012.
The French Horn rendition of the fog horn is a highlight of Arnold's tribute to those who help at sea.
In an interview he gave on Padstow Quay, which was broadcast on Radio Three, the composer said "The lifeboat here is very much part of every bodyís life. They do some tremendously heroic rescues, I know the crew, I know the Coxswain - Coxwain Elliot, most of them are friends of mine and I was struck by their heroism and it being very much part of the Town. I thought I would like to write a march, thatís all"
