Program Notes

Very little is known about the composition of Dunedin other than it was written in 1928 to commemorate the 93rd Highlanders’ visit to New Zealand. Dunedin is one of Alford’s lesser known marches.

A very challenging march, Dunedin is accessible to bands of all grade levels. Dunedin opens in the key of C major with the trio moving to F major. The march is in the compound meter of 6/8 throughout. The form of the march is straightforward with no major surprises.
