Island Songsmith


In Bermuda, there are few brass musicians who have not been influenced or encouraged by David Knight. In his more than 90 years of service, he has touched the lives of generations of young musicians and contributed to the Island’s culture through composing worship songs and hymns for his church (The Salvation Army).

Island Songsmith highlights “DK’s” gift for melody in this setting of three of his best-known songs; Where is the cross?, If we walk in the light, and If you would be my disciple. The songs are set in a fashion which heightens their contrasting character. The first is a strong march-like hymn, the second is a delightful Calypso, and the third is a deeply moving devotional. The arrangement concludes with a return to the strength of the bold opening hymn.

The brass band was DK’s favourite musical medium and is used here with plenty of percussion to make sure the character of his songs is fully expressed.
