Program Notes

Pomp and Circumstance


Sir Edward Elgar, composer

Pomp and Circumstance (Military March No, 2) is one of five "Military Marches" composed by Sir Edward Elgar, all with the same title, Pomp and Circumstance, and differentiated only by number. While all five are marches, they are each very different in feeling, even though they all seem the very personification of British Pomp, power, and empire in its great days around the beginning of the Twentieth Century.
