Program Notes

Architect of Victory was written around 1994 for the retirement ceremony of an out-going Army Chief Of Staff. I have re-dedicated the march to my favorite military hero, General George C. Marshall. He was U.S. Army Chief of Staff during World War Two, and then went on to serve as U.S. Secretary of State.

This march has become part of Pershing's Own's standard repertoire, and I have received numerous requests for the score and parts to this march, which has up until now remained unpublished. However, this new version of the march has been re-arranged to be a little easier and more "outdoor friendly" than the original, signature version, still played by the U.S. Army Band and Herald Trumpets. Sorry folks, but some things ARE sacred, and the Army Band's signature version of this march will remain as such.
