Robert Farnon's Concorde March

In April 2019 we celebrated 50 years since the
inaugural journey of the first UK-built Concorde,
which flew from Filton, near Bristol, to RAF Fairford
on 9th April, 1969.

CRD Records has a special musical connection to this
event: the Concorde March. This jubilant orchestral
piece was commissioned by British Airways to mark
the launch of Concorde, the first passenger supersonic
airliner, a great feat of engineering and an emblem of
the power of Anglo-French co-operation. Concorde
March was written by the hugely popular and
Grammy Award winning composer, Robert Farnon,
and recorded by CRD in West Ham Central Mission
(now Plaistow Memorial Community Church) with the
London Symphony Orchestra and conducted by the
composer, with recording engineer, Bob Auger.

Originally released as a 7 inch vinyl single, the B side
featured a new version of Robert Farnon's Holiday Flight

To mark this auspicious 50th Anniversary milestone
and celebrate the intersection of engineering and
musical brilliance, we are re-releasing these two
historic pieces.
