Famous Military and Concert Marches

The Band of HM Royal Marines, Chatham

Famous Military and Concert MarchesHTGCD241 – 5013993951056

A romp through the gamut of concert band marches – Sousa, Alford et al and some intriguing arrangements of marches from the core classical canon. The choice of RM Band is also intriguing – this particular band was merged with the other Marines bands in 1983, a victim of that year’s strategic defence review.

Captain C.J. Taylor LRAM, ARCM LG SMRM
