Edward Elgar

Edward Elgar – Land of Hope and Glory Pomp and Circumstance Military March No. 1

Known in the USA as the “Graduation March” as it’s the most common processional tune at high school and graduation ceremonies, Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 is also well known for its reception two days after it first premiered in 1901 – it is the only piece in history of the London Promenade Concert in the Queen’s Hall, London, to be played for a second encore. Since then, it has grown further in popularity and is one of Elgar’s most famous works.
