D-Day March for Brass Band (British Style)
An original march for Brass Band by Keith Terrett, with the first strain written in the minor key.
There are interesting parts for all, and a delectable Eb Soprano Cornet line during the last strain.
This march was runner-up in the 2008 Ohio Brass Composers Competition, it is now published by:www.jagrins.com
The Normandy Landings were the first operations of the Allied invasion of Normandy, also known as Operation Neptune and Operation Overlord, during World War II. The landings commenced on June 6, 1944 (D-Day), beginning at 6:30 British Double Summer Time (H-Hour). In planning, D-Day was in reference to the day of actual landing, which was dependent on final approval. The assault was conducted in two phases: an air assault landing of American, British and Canadian airborne troops shortly after midnight, and an amphibious landing of Allied infantry and armoured divisions on the coast of France commencing at 6:30. The invasion required the transport of soldiers and material from the United Kingdom by troop carrying aircraft and ships, the assault landings, air support, naval interdiction of the English Channel and naval fire-support. There were also subsidiary ’attacks’ mounted under the code names Operation Glimmer and Operation Taxable to distract the Kriegsmarine and the German army from the real landing areas.
The operation was the largest single-day amphibious invasion of all time, with over 130,000 troops landing on June 6,1944. 195,700 Allied naval and merchant navy personnel were involved. The landings took place along a stretch of the Normandy coast divided into five sectors: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword.
The attached MP3 features the Central Ohio Brass Band and Brass Band of Columbus.
