Favourite Military March?

Recommended Posts

I do like a mass pipe and drums.

It was either Alan Lomax's The Land Where Blues Began or Scorsese's Blues, I can't remember which, but one of them drew a direct line between British military fife and drum and, with some West African influences along the way, early Delta Blues music

So this...

morphed into something like this

Home grown's better. Weirdly someone on the street with a handheld camcorder managed to deliver more powerful footage than the BBC and has the effect of as if you're looking back in time, through some peculiar handheld viewing device to a Britain of yesteryear.

They should have just let these march round London during the riots.

Luftwaffe March from the film The Battle of Britain - although part of the film score, it does sound quite authentic.

As a piper, any number of 6/8 marches spring to mind.

I can't help asking myself can't the Welsh do better than all that German stuff?

It's on the tip of my tongue. Something with a good top tenor section.

Mass male voiuce choirs do it for me too. Is it alright if I consider this part of my country's heritage too?

There some Welsh blood in me. And some Scottish and Irish too. Makes the 6 nations quite good as a fair chance one of team will win ;)

A scary aspect of the UK is the growing fetishism of the armed forces. Poppy fascism, Wootton Bassett, Military Wives an xmas no 1.

TPTB must love it.
