For our friends in the UK. Long live your queen! I must say you Brits really know how to celebrate. The Diamond anniversary telecast was most uplifting. Working with eight trumpets gives the players a chance to rest before joining in again. This is written in such a way as to fill the need for the 3,000 graduates to have time to get their diplomas, even if they walk very slow. There are two sections which can be repeated as well as going back to the top for added length.
