Tune of the Day: British Grenadier's March
Traditional English tune, arranged for flute trio
This is the traditional marching song of British and Canadian grenadier units, and its tune dates back to the 17th century.
It makes its appearance in many movies, from Barry Lyndon to Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, from The Four Feathers to Pride and Prejudice, and from The Patriot to The Italian Job.
The present arrangement for three flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
