Program Notes

It is easy to understand why Kipling's poem appeal to Sousa: it is intense and martial in nature. The song was used by the Sousa Band only for a short period during and after World War I, but alumni of the Sousa Band appreciated its musical worth and programmed it with their own bands many years after Sousa's death.
