Heh. We've (the tuba player next to me and I) think we've found the piece that JW used as a marker for *every* *single* *march* he's ever written. Crown Imperial, by William Walton. (I couldn't find an open mp3 link for it, but it's on Amazon and eMusic.) Written in 1937 for Edward's coronation, it was used for both George and Lizzie. There are so many things in that march which Williams used in his marches (we've played a number of them, as they're impressive sounding but not horribly difficult) that it's fairly apparent where he got his inspiration from. The trio and bridge are echoed in a lot of JW's ballads/"love" songs, too.
