John Philip Sousa's tasteful arrangement of this delightful Percy Grainger classic has been updated for modern concert band by Keith Brion and Loras Schissel. Includes copious rehearsal and performance notes and even some correspondence between Sousa and Grainger that gives insight into their thoughts about arrangements of Grainger's music. Extremely nice!

    Good articulation and feel for tempo, as well as great musicality, are a must. However, this is a very fun piece if done well, and was one of my favorites due to its fast pace.
