The New Easy Favorite Series, published exclusively by Santorella Publications, is a collection of enduring classics arranged for the beginning piano student. The titles are thoughtfully arranged with the limitations of the beginner in mind and are printed on heavy stock designed to last for many years. Each piece in the series captures the elegant beauty, rich harmonies, and unique textures of the original work while maintaining an easy-to-read and easy-to-play structure designed to expose the beginning student of any age to a complete collection of the world's most popular and recognizable classics. In this case we bring to you POMP and CIRCUMSTANCE. This majestic theme by Britain's Edward Elgar was actually his first installment in a series of Pomp and Circumstance Military Marches written in 1901. Who would have known that over a century later it can still be heard at each and every graduation ceremony in America? Pomp and Circumstance is synonymous to the Cap and Gown. This simple melody is memorable and familiar to most anyone who walks the earth. With that in mind, while developing a beginner's repertoire, it is always helpful to work with familiar melodies and this edition, arranged by Jonathon Robbins, will serve as an ideal tool for introducing the world of marches to any young pianist.
