Program Notes

Karl King was a true master at writing marches that are playable by all grade levels, and this great arrangement gives this classic a modern instrumentation along with accurate articulations, dynamics and a full score. You just can't go wrong with a Karl King march, and this one just bubbles along and is extremely nice. A solid choice!

-Program Note by publisher


Although Peacemaker is a traditional march, much in the style of King’s other quick-step marches, it has several unique features. Beginning the piece in F minor, King uncharacteristically repeats the first strain an additional time between the second strain and the trio. This return to the first strain sets up a seamless shift to Ab major at the Trio, as opposed to a more traditional key change. James Swearingen’s arrangement gives this classic King march a modern instrumentation, editorial corrections, and a full score.
