Program Notes

Arnold wrote this march in 1957 for the centennial of the Royal Military Music School at Kneller Hall. The Duke of Cambridge was, at that time, Commander-in-Chief of the British Army. The dedication of the march reads, “To Lt. Col. David McBain,” who was bandmaster there.

- Program Note from Heritage Encyclopedia of Band Music


The cantabile melody of the middle section provides contrast to the richly scored opening and grand finale: a contrast between the band sounds of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
