Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1

(Includes Land of Hope and Glory) Edward Elgar, arranged with accompaniment for Piano or Organ by Peter Lawson.

This choral arrangement is available in four versions:
Mixed Voice Choir SATB - GM328
Mixed Voice Choir SA+Men - GM329
Upper Voice Choir SSA - GM330
Male Voice Choir TTBB - GM331

In Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance March No.1 the Land of Hope and Glory section first appears in the key of G (rather low for voices) and triumphantly returns near the end in D (rather too high for some voices). With this arrangement, instead of singing in unison, choirs could comfortably sing in harmony with the audience singing along in unison. This would solve the problem of choir members going off range as the tune either goes too low or too high for them.
As the choir is only involved for part of the work, the March does give an opportunity for the pianist to shine and could be played by a competent grade 7-8 pianist. (Peter Lawson)
Duration 6 minutes
