    For lovers of the Marching Band

    This is an amazing resource: http://www.bandmusicpdf.org/library-...hp?by=composer. If you click on any of the "blue" titles at the top of the list it will sort in that order (impressive). So, for example, if you're look for marches by Sousa and want Sempre Fedilis (one of my favourites) ... sort by composer first and scroll down to Sousa.

    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    What an excellent resource, David ...

    I will pass this on to my choral director at the church as he is always searching for scores like this for his instrumentalists.

    I really love great marching band music ... got to hear the US Marine Band once in live concert ... impeccable performance.

    Lars - i totally agree. I spent a good deal of my high school years playing various clarinets in the school's marching band ... I preferred the E-flat as it as small and always got the nice twiddly bits.

    Neither I am afraid, although I used to sing in the choirs at school, especially in Wales.

    @Corno The British bands you mention are brass bands I think. I prefer the military bands personally. I have a CD of the President's Own band, and very nice playing it is, too.
