Sir Henry J. Wood (1869--1944) wrote his Fantasia on British Sea Songs in 1905 to commemorate the 100th year anniversary of Admiral Lord Nelsonâ€™s defeat of the French and Spanish fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar. This wonderful concert band arrangement incorporates five of Woodâ€™s selected themes: "The Saucy Arethusa," "Tom Bowling," "Jackâ€™s the Lad," "Farewell and Adieu" and "See, the Conquering Hero Comes." Youâ€™ll recognize the themes, if not the original names. A cherished new addition to the repertoire certain not to be missed! (7:58).
