The disc -- and our podcast -- features famous marches, as well as some that aren't so well known. You'll hear John Philip Sousa's "The Washington Post March," and Jeremiah Clarke's "Prince of Denmark's March." But the program also includes the Bridal March from "The Birds," by British composer Charles Hubert Parry. We also play an arrangement by Felix-Alexandre Giulmant, a renowned French organist -- a Marche Relgieuse on Handel's "Lift Up Your Heads."
A varied and exciting program, indeed!
