Sousa wrote this galop for the Chestnut Theatre orchestra in Philadelphia in 1876. His melodic (and countermelodic) gifts shine through in this early work, which can easily stand beside the Strauss family’s compositions. I transposed the galop down a minor 2nd to C and F major concert, which makes the upper woodwind’s job much easier than the original D-flat and G-flat!
