Detailed Description

Land of Hope and Glory (Grade 2 - Score and Parts). Composed by Edward Elgar (1857-1934). Arranged by Philip Sparke. For Concert Band. Anglo Music Concert Band. Grade 2. Anglo Music Press #AMP128. Published by Anglo Music Press (HL.44003185).

Elgar's five “Pomp and Circumstance” marches were written between 1901 and 1930, with number 1 undoubtedly being the most popular of the five. King Edward VII told Elgar that the tune would “go 'round the world” if words were fitted to it. Elgar took the hint and included it (with slight rhythmic changes) in his Coronation Ode of 1902, with words by A. C. Benson. Thus was born Land of Hope and Glory, which is now an integral part of the annual “Last Night of the Proms,” when the audience sings the words along to the original march. Now your concert band can enjoy all the pomp and ceremony of the proms with this arrangement by Philip Sparke.
