The chapter deals with the recruitment of soldiers to be trained as musicians, and their roles in times of peace and war. It provides primary source evidence for the means of recruiting soldiers from among the poor and (especially) the recruitment of boys from workhouses and orphanages. It also deals with the legacies that military musicians left for British music, especially through dynasties that were to be prominent in British music.
