Maybe this should be in theory ?

Might only appeal to a very few, but the "The Complete Marches of John Philip Sousa" are available for free.
Three albums/Volumes for download, plus all the scores in PDF and Scrolling Scores.
Excellent for studying scoring and arranging.

Indeed; thanks for posting.
The pdf's have to be downloaded one by one; the mp3 files can be had as albums. Just for kicks, here's a extract from one of the pdf's...

The poor fellow ain't waiting for his moment - He is the moment !!
A lonely sixteen bars to get it wrong before his sidekick comes roaring in at ff to save the day.

I wonder what is happening in the forty bars before ?
I was going to say, possibly tacet. But, the racket of twenty pairs of marching military boots is hardly a tacet.

If my reading is up to scratch, it is indeed tacet until 40, and after his high spot until the end..! Why do I never get those gigs..? :(

Thanks for posting! Many happy hours spent playing his marches in my formative years with a symphonic/marching band Some cracking themes and counterpoint/descant parts. Not always easy to play.
