Help with march id
As the ceremonial season rapidly approaches, I am trying to clear my list of unidentified marches. I've posted requests to the relevent YouTube pages and eventually to
the Facebook page of the band involved. I've only recently begun contacting the
bands for assistance but try and keep this method to a minimum.
The most frequent result has been a reply from the musician tasked with Facebook/Twitter within minutes -- from their mobile. Amazing given the
variety of activities that occupy the lives of Guards musicians.
Two requests for help got lost on the way to the Palace.
Band of the CG. Quick march at 01:28.
The CG Facebook editor did reply rapidly but said that he was stumped
and would have to consult with another musician. Alas that was that.
Band of the B&R. March off.
No response was received to my post to the B& Band Facebook page.
This one is twisting me into the shape of a French horn.
I know the music well, but repeated searches of the 315 most popular HD
marches I keep on my PC desktop have failed to lead to an identification.
No doubt I will be thoroughly embarrassed to learn the title.
The effort the HD bands have put into their Facebook and Twitter pages has revolutionized their relationship with their public. It's also clear that members
of the HD find it useful as well -- DoMs, musicians, DMajs etc regularly
show up on Facebook. Bravo. I'd like to particularly compliment the Band of the
Scots Guards , who starting with their North American tour last year have maintained
a very high standard in posting to their Facebook page and in replying to
requests for assistance.
