Since 1921, The Salvation Army’s Triumph Series Journal (named the Second Series until 1953) published music generally aimed at smaller and/or younger bands. In 1939, a first book of ‘favourites’ was published, followed in 1968 by the Triumph Series Favourites (No. 2) book, which soon became commonly referred to as ‘the Green Book’. As the name suggests, this was a collection of music published in the preceding years which had found a high degree of popularity among the bands which regularly used the Triumph Series Journal.

All of the music on this recording has been taken from the Green Book, and was first published between 1939 and 1962. The featured composers include some of The Salvation Army’s foremost writers, and it is a humbling realisation that while individuals such as Dean Goffin, Ray Steadman-Allen and Leslie Condon were writing music to challenge the best Salvation Army bands of the day, they were also devoting their time to providing music for smaller bands and younger musicians.
