STRIKE UP THE BAND!

This wide-ranging collection of favourite marches from around the world spans a period of 100 years, from Schubert’s Marche militaire No. 1, indelibly associated with Christmas Eve, Disney and Santa’s workshop, to Coates’ The Dam Busters used in the 1954 film of the same name. Other favourites include Sousa’s The Liberty Bell, used as the signature tune for the BBC comedy Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Alford’s Colonel Bogey from the film The Bridge on the River Kwai, and Under the Double Eagle by ‘the Austrian march king’, Josef Franz Wagner.
