March to Buckingham Palace

for Concert Band Grade 1.5

March to Buckingham Palace attempts to capture the spirit and pageantry of this tradtitional British ceremony. The piece begins softly with drums and flute to evoke the approach of the fife and drum corps. The melody is loosely based on the 17th century marching tune "The British Grenadiers." As the piece progresses, quotes from other patriotic songs appear such as "Rule Britannia" and "God Save the Queen." The chimes of Big Ben at measure 57 should be played by concert chimes if possible but can be substituted with bells if chimes are not available.

Duration: 1:45

Includes score and parts
