Ethel Smyth: The March Of The Women

Books | Unison Voice

Composer: Ethel Smyth
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
As a work of historic interest of the period, The March of the Women is an essential work.British composer Ethel Smyth was a prolific, important composer of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1910, she joined the Women’s Social and Political Union for whom she wrote this anthem. It was taken up and sung everywhere, including Holloway Prison where Smyth and other suffragettes had been imprisoned for breaking windows and other acts of political disorder. When Sir Thomas Beecham visited her there, he found the women marching around the inner yard and singing while Smyth directed the impromptu Chorus with her toothbrush.

      Had hoped there would be an accompaniment as well as the melody.

      Nicely produced if you just want the words and the melody line!
      No piano part, or even chord symbols. The pre-sale information did not make this clear!
      My nonagenarian singing teacher, Elizabeth Cooper, has now composed a piano accompaniment in the style of Ethel Smyth for us to use in our 1914 show and it works very well. That's what I needed!
