Pomp & Circumstance (Land of Hope & Glory)
(March No.1)

Thanks for listening. This composition is an entirely faithful recreation of the original works, composed by Sir Edward Elgar in 1901.

This is an original sound recording and re-creation of the full 7-minute orchestral piece, reconstructed and performed from the original 1901 score written by Elgar which is now in the Public Domain.

It contains the refrain to, what is now commonly known as ‘Land of Hope & Glory’ – a very English anthem. (a word of historic factual note:’Land of Hope & Glory is, (suprisingly), not the national anthem. the British national anthem is actually ‘God Save The Queen’.

Built using specifice orchestral sections as specified by Elgar himself, this composition contains:

• Full real-time dynamic tempo changes
• Full string section (2xViolin, 2x Viola, 1xCello 1xContrabass)
• Full wind section (2x Piccolos, 2x flutes, 1xCor Anglais 2xClarinet, 1xBass
• Clarinet, 2xOboes, , 1xBassoon, 1xContrabassoon)
• Full Horn Section (2x French Horn, 1xCornet, 3xTrumbones, 2xTrumpet, 2xTuba
• Full Symphony Harp
• Orchestral Timpani (x2)
• Orchestral Percussion, (bass drum, cymbals, triangle, side drum, jingles)
In addition for my unique version of this composition, i’ve added:

• 12-piece boys choir (gently humming ‘mmmms’ on the main refrain)
• Heavenly Tubular Bells (towards the climactic end)
• U.S style Millitary Piccolo and military snare marches

Unlike other commercially released sound recordings of this song, this particular version, should you choose to purchase it, is ROYALTY FREE – which means you can use this particular recording in any media you wish, for as many times as you wish.
