Of Elgar's five Pomp and Circumstance Marches, the first in D is the best known as it includes Land of Hope and Glory. The origin of the title of these marches is a speech in Shakespeare's "Othello":
O now, for ever/ Farewell the tranquil mind! farewell content!/ Farewell the plumed troops and the big wars/ That makes ambition virtue!/ O farewell!/ Farewell the neighing steed and the shrill trump,/ The spirit-stirring drum, th' ear-piercing fife,/ The royal banner, and all quality,/ Pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious war!

This arrangement has been made to make it more accessible to the average orchestra; the instruments marked with an asterisk in the orchestration list above may be omitted if necessary.
Duration: 6 minutes


Piccolo, 2 Flutes, 2 Oboes, 2 Clarinets in A or Bb, Bass clarinet*, 2 Bassoons, 2 Horns in F, 2 Trumpets in Bb, 3 Trombones, Tuba, Timpani, Percussion (Snare drum, Triangle, Bass drum, Cymbals), Strings (Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, Cello, Bass), (* = instruments optional)
