There is a recording of this on u tube, but no information, I think it's a Military Band. You could Contact the Royal Marines, as he was one of theirs before going across to you.
Yes, there are several recordings on YouTube, and all appear to by by wind bands. I was not aware of this march until I stumbled across it on YouTube earlier this week. It's a wonderful march!There is a recording of this on u tube, but no information, I think it's a Military Band.
I've just found their website and sent them a message asking for (1) a source for a Brass Band edition, or (2) a source for a wind band edition and whom to contact for copyright clearance to arrange for Brass Band. I'll report back here on what I learn. Meanwhile, if anyone else has any information on a Brass Band edition of this march, please chime in!You could Contact the Royal Marines, as he was one of theirs before going across to you. or you could acquire the military band set and adapt it
Thank you, Jack, for this information and this link. It's the only YouTube video of this march I've found that's being played by a Brass Band rather than by a Wind Band / Military Band. I've just emailed them to see what information they can provide. Last week I also emailed the Band of the Royal Marines to see if they could be of help as well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for good luck in this search!
I've found an arranger with the rights to arrange this march, and I'm trying to put together an "arrangement commissioning consortium" -- a cooperative venture of 3 - 5 or more Brass Bands -- to pay for the arrangement at a reasonable price, with each band receiving a set of parts and score to the new arrangement. I've just started a new thread here, describing this project and inviting other bands to participate.... let us know how you get on, as I'm sure other bands might well be interested in playing it.
