I do know of a really great compilation of marches...I think they are
all Sousa but I can't be sure as it is late and I'm tired (just
finished band rehearsal). I'ts called 'On Parade' and was arranged
for our band by Allan Fernie....goes down well with the audiences!
I am also not so sure if it is published yet, if you are interested I
may be able to find out more for you.
