Generally regarded as “The Graduation March,” Pomp and Circumstance was written by Edward Elgar in 1901 and first used in a graduation ceremony at Yale in June of 1905. Because every graduation ceremony is different, the infamous repeated section has multiple escape points and the piece can come to a close whenever is necessary. 

This arrangement is well suited for a flute quartet, but would also work equally as well in a flute choir setting.
