Program Notes

National Emblem March

march (1906)

E. E. Bagley, composer

The National Emblem March by E. E. Bagley remains one of America’s most popular marches, second only to Sousa’s "Stars and Stripes Forever March". The march, written in 1906, borrows its first principal theme from our national anthem. The contrasting second theme and stirring trio have also become as well known as many popular songs.
