A well-known march by Percy Grainger, originally for piano, but his scoring for wind band is the most popular. A simple tune, first presented by the bass clarinet, is expanded upon and subjected to all the harmonic and rhythmic quirks Grainger is known for. Optional percussion parts can be used at the discretion of the director for some extra color.
