C006 The Dambusters March - Coates, E.


This famous March with its iconic theme and soaring countermelodies was originally written by Eric Coates as an exercise in emulating the form of Edward Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance Marches. He disliked writing film music, and when asked by the producers of The Dambusters to provide a title piece he at first refused, but upon hearing it was a film of 'national importance' he relented. This arrangement for flute choir gives everyone a chance to enjoy their moment of grandeur, and is a really good blow!
