The March Of Progress is a song for SATB choir with Piano accompaniment. First published in 1902, the words were written by A. J. Foxwell, and set to an earlier tune by Giacomo Meyerbeer.
Meyerbeer (1791-1864) was a German-Jewish composer and pianist. He is best remembered for his Operas, both in Germany and in France, and he undoubtedly did much for continental music during his lifetime. He has been somewhat overlooked in the UK and other English speaking countries, perhaps unfairly, but has maintained a world-wide fan base in many different countries.
