'Regarded by many as the best and most consistent "public subscription band" in the world. In its time the majority of premier band championships have been held by "Briggus" whilst the band has also attracted a formidable reputation for highly entertaining concerts for both the general public and brass band connoisseur. The Band was formed over 130 years ago through public donations given by the townsfolk of the adjacent villages of Brighouse and Rastrick that face each other across the River Calder in West Yorkshire, England.'

'Was specially formed in 1991 to sing Haydn’s Creation as part of the National Voices for Hospices event which resulted in 113 simultaneous performances of the work throughout the United Kingdom ... Since that inaugural concert, the members of Overgate Hospice Choir have continued to meet and now produce four concerts a year together with other smaller performances. As far as is known, Overgate was the first hospice to have its own choir formed specifically and solely for the purpose of raising money for the hospice. Other groups have followed but it is believed that Overgate was the very first in that particular field.'
