    Voice of the Guns - K. J. Alford

    We just got this great march in our folders last night. Kenneth Alford's "Voice of the Guns". Alford (or Ricketts) wrote "Voice of the Guns" in 1917 during WW-I to honor the British artillery. It was heard in portions of the great 1962 movie, "Lawrence of Arabia". I've not played this march in a very long time and forgot what a great part the euphoniums have. There's more than one key change... starts in 'Db', a change to 'F' after the 2nd strain, then as usual in the Trio it adds a flat for 'Eb'.
