  • July 18, 2011 The Walton Coronation Marches

    As noted in the score, these marches are taken from Volume 17 of the William Walton Edition (2009.) Regarding Crown Imperial, the Preface states this "is the first publication of Crown Imperial at its full length and in its original orchestration." And what a pleasure it is to have the...

    original in print! The Preface is excellent, containing a thorough history of both works, including a discussion of all the various cuts in "Crown." Editing, print quality and paper are all outstanding, as befits an Oxford publication. As usual, service and delivery by Sheet Music Plus was great. These scores are a must for every student of British ceremonial music.
