I saw this on the news tonight, at the Classical Brits ceremony, album of the year was won by the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, who were based in Basra when they recorded the album - Spirit of the Glen: Journey, the story is here. It honestly brought to my mind images of Brassed Off (seeing the crowds reaction at the awards). Don't be surprised if there's a movie.
Also on music, Neil McCormick wonders whether we might be overwhelmed by music. Funnily enough I sometimes inspite of all the songs I have to chose between, can't find music I want to list too.
