Notes & Reviews:

"...Most bands make the "Marche funebre" sound dreary and too long, and I had concluded long ago that it is not a good piece of music. But John Bourgeois and the US Marine Band give the long, lyrical melodic lines a sense of determined, sustained intensity that make them sound grim and inexorable. Remarkably detailed sonics help, too -- the bass drum is a clear and ominous presence, for instance. For me it is like hearing a whole new piece." -Kilpatrick, ARG
