Program Notes

Bennet’s Triumphal was published in 1925 by the Victor Music Co. of Chicago. It has remained a favorite circus and concert march for much of the 20th century. Ribble dedicated the march “To My Friend, Dr. John P. Bennet.” In 1973 and 1988, Joseph Kreines, of Melbourne, Florida, reedited the march and constructed a full score. In January 1998 three of the 80-piece Windjammer bands at the annual conference in Sarasota, Florida, recorded Bennet’s Triumphal under the direction of William Pruyn, former director of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Band.
