"This book acts as a valuable resource to increase every bandsman’s knowledge of the vast “hidden” catalogue of music that exists outside the major publishing houses and outside our own borders. We now have the opportunity to view the library of Australian band music with Michael’s objective eye, deep understanding and of course, his great passion for the genre. This is a welcome resource for any champion of concert band repertoire."
Founder, Artistic & Managing Director, Con Brio Festivals Ltd.
Principal Conductor and Program Director, The West Vancouver Youth Band Society (est. 1930)
"What a diverse musical landscape is opened up by the exploration that Michael has undertaken across the works listed in the following pages, and what great care he has taken in his expert appraisal of each of the works listed! May this book provide you with the navigation tools that you need to undertake your own explorations of this landscape, and introduce yourselves to music of this place, Australia."
