Reach For The Skies

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Filled with every song, anthem, or theme seemingly ever connected to the British Royal Air Force, this set from the RAF's Central Band, their debut for Decca Records is an emotional, high-spirited journey in nostalgia, ranging from an elegiac version of "The Battle of Britain March" to the stirring theme from the 633 Squadron. Music can paint brave pictures in the heart, and this band knows how to take a whole nation there.
