Description

Not to be confused with the Southern Italian city and province of the same name, A Brindisi is a drinking song. The word is Italian, but it derives from an old German phrase, meaning - offer it to you, which was used to introduce a toast. 

The transformation of that phrase into the current Italian word may have been influenced by similar sounding name of the Italian city of Brindisi, but otherwise the city and the song are unrelated. 

Often used in opera, one character introduces a toast with a solo melody and the full ensemble later joins in the refrain.

“Every now and again a recording that is both truly outstanding and will have great appeal to brass band listeners appears on the shelves. We are delighted to make it the first recipient of our CD of the Year Editors Award.”

Kenneth Crookston
British Bandsman

“An absorbing selection of refined choices and inspirational highlights. Marvellous."
