Sir Gustav's Pageant
Genre: Concert march, processional, Holst
This is from the first movement of the Holst Second Suite (the euphonium solo). It may be the stateliest melody ever penned. We’ve set it as an easy-to-prepare concert march that also works beautifully as a recessional.
Coronation Anthem: The King Shall Rejoice
Genre: Processional, concert march
G. F. Handel captures the triumphal joy of a dignified occasion as well as anyone. Written as ceremonial music and used at the coronation of George II, this makes a fine concert march. Take the optional repeat and you have the perfect graduation recessional.
