Program Notes

Although King wrote 300 works during a half-century of composing, he rarely ran out of notes. He did, however, run out of titles and presumably asked Barnhouse publishers to name this march and fifteen others which he wrote in 1955. The marches were placed in an album called Liberty March Folio (with a picture of the Statue of Liberty on the cover) and each was given a patriotic, world peace title in accordance with world events in Geneva, Korea, and the United States at the time.
