'Triumphal March' by A. von Ahn Carse

Fifth place in the 1909 Music for Military Band Competition was awarded to Mr Adam von Ahn Carse (1878-1958) for a March. When originally submitted to the Competition, it was identified by the title given on the front page: Bombardon (which is a brass instrument, also known as a Bass Tuba - the score does indeed specify that two such instruments be used).

However, this title was dropped in time for the prize-giving event to simply A Triumphal March - written at the top of the front page of the score.

 

The Company retains this original manuscript and each page is presented below. Click on the image to see it larger, click on Go to link for a detailed view.
