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